Physicians often use the Body Mass Index to determine a person’s weight risks. The BMI compares weight to height. When a person’s BMI is greater than 30, that person is considered obese. When a person’s BMI exceeds 40, that person is considered morbidly obese.
Calculate your Body Mass Index (BMI)
< 18.5 = underweight
18.5-24.9 = normal weight
25.0-29.9 = overweight
30.0-34.9 = class I obesity
35.0-39.9 = class II obesity
≥ 40.0 = class III obesity
