Body mass index (BMI) is commonly abbreviated to BMI. It is a quick and easy measure of body weight relative to the height although it only works for those that are not on the extremes when it comes to muscle mass such as body builders.
For adults, body mass index of of 18.5 to 25 is normal and anything above 25 in terms of BMI is considered overweight. Further, a BMI of over 30 is considered clinical obesity. Unfortunately, over half the adults in New York City and even more, up to two thirds in the United States meet the definition of being overweight.
