For adults, overweight and obesity ranges are determined by using weight and height to calculate a number called the “body mass index” (BMI) altough it is not a great tool in determinning a persons risk. BMI is used because, for most people, it correlates with their amount of body fat.

•An adult who has a BMI between 25 and 29.9 is considered overweight.
•An adult who has a BMI of 30 or higher is considered obese.
See the following table for an example.

It is important to remember that although BMI correlates with the amount of body fat, BMI does not directly measure body fat.

More than the BMI, a waist circumference of over 40 inches in the mid-section for men or over 36 inches for women can serve as a rough guide in understanding your risk.
