What Does BMI Say about Your Weight?

Understanding Obesity Classification

Body Mass Index (BMI) is a common tool used to assess weight status and potential obesity risk.

It's calculated by dividing your weight in kilograms by the square of your height in meters.

Here's a breakdown of BMI classifications:


BMI less than 18.5

Normal Weight:



BMI 18.5 to 24.9

BMI 25 to 29.9

BMI 30 or higher

Obesity is further categorized:

Class 1:

Class 3:

Class 2:

BMI 30 to 34.9

BMI 35 to 39.9

BMI 40 or higher

BMI doesn't account for muscle mass or body composition. Consulting a healthcare professional for a more comprehensive assessment is recommended.
