Defining Overweight & Obesity:

Overweight/obese status is determined by calculating an individuals body mass index (BMI) - a number that reflects the relationship of weight to height and serves as a good estimate of body fat. A healthy BMI ranges between 18.5 and 24.9. For example, a person who is 56 and 135 pounds has a BMI of approximately 21. A BMI between 25 and 29.9 is considered overweight, 30 and over is obese.
