At the top of the chart you can see your BMI, and at the bottom of the chart you can see which category you fit into – healthy weight, overweight, or obese: Some examples This table shows us that a woman who is 5 ft. tall is considered overweight (BMI is 25 to 29) if she weighs between 145 and 169 pounds. tall is considered overweight (BMI is 25 to 29) if he weighs between 174 and 202 pounds, and is obese (BMI is 30 or more) if he weighs 209 pounds or more. The actual formula to determine BMI uses metric system measurements: weight in kilograms (kg) divided by height in meters, squared (m2).
She is considered obese (BMI is 30 or more) if she weighs 174 pounds or more. When using pounds and inches, the formula needs to be altered slightly. Divide that by your height in inches, squared: BMI = (your weight in pounds x 703) ÷ (your height in inches x your height in inches) For example, if you weigh 120 pounds and are 5 ft. (63 in.) tall: BMI = (120 x 703) ÷ (63 x 63) or 84,360 ÷ 3969 = 21.3 This is well within the healthy weight range.
