How do you know you are obese?
How to calculate how obese you are!
Most doctors calculate obesity using a formula known as the Body Mass Index (BMI).
It is a measure based on height and weight that applies to both adult men and women.
To calculate your BMI divide your weight in kilograms by the square of your height in metres.
A BMI of 25 to 29.9 is considered overweight and one of 30 or above is considered obese.
