First, You Need to Determine If You Are Overweight

BMI (Body Mass Index) is a formula used in determining if an individual is obese. This formula takes into account a person’s height and weight, which is an indicator of the individual’s body fatness to height. A body mass index considered to be normal is usually between 19 and 25.

According to the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute Body Mass Index Calculator, an individual who weighs 140 pounds and measures 5-foot-7-inch in height would have 21.9 body mass index. So, an individual is considered overweight if the body mass index number is between approximately 26 and 29. And, when the BMI reaches 30 and above, an individual is said to be obese. The extreme or morbid obesity is when a BMI is 40 and above.
