BMI-Body Mass Index
Body mass index is a measurement which compares a person’s height and weight. It’s a useful tool to estimate a healthy body weight based on your height. It’s the most widely used diagnostic tool to identify obesity issues.
Underweight 16.5-18.5 Normal 18.5-25 Overweight 25-30 Obese I 30-35 Obese II 35-40 Severely Obese 40-45
This is not an exact measurement of weight, but a good general indicator to be aware of. This number can be higher in people with lots of lean body mass (muscle), especially athletes. In that case, over 25 may be in a very healthy range.
