The most common method of measuring excess body fat is using the Body Mass Index, or BMI calculator.
We’ve included a calculator below to help you determine your own BMI.
|Less than 18.5||Underweight|
|18.5 to 24.9||Considered healthy and low-risk|
|25 to 29.9||Overweight, considered moderate-risk|
|30 to 34.9||Obese I, considered high-risk|
|35 to 39.9||Obese II, very high-risk|
|40 and over||Morbidly Obese, extremely high-risk|
For both men and women, a normal BMI is between 20 and 25. Individuals with a BMI of 25-29 are considered overweight. Those with a BMI of 30 or higher are considered obese. This calculation is not without its limitations, but can give you a general idea of your condition.
