How to determine if you are normal, overweight or obese


The most accurate way to determine if you are normal, overweight or obese is to calculate your BMI. It is a very easy procedure and you can do this at home or at a health facility.
You will need 2 values to determine your BMI; your weight in Kg (for example 75Kg) and your height in meters (for example 1.65 m).
Calculate your BMI using the formula below:

 BMI = weight/height2

Weight is in kilograms and height is in meters

Example: Jane has a weight of 75 kg and her height is 1.65m. Her BMI is

  75/ (1.65)2 = 75/ (1.65×1.65) = 75/2.7225 =27.55

If you have a BMI of 18.5 to 24.9, you are normal
If you have a BMI of 25 to 29.9, you are overweight
If you have a BMI of 30 and above, then you are obese

There are some conditions however where a high BMI doesn't mean that the individual has excess body fats. This is the case with most wrestlers and body builders because they have a lot of muscle tissue.
