BMI (Body Mass Index) is a measurement of body fat based on height and weight that applies to both men and women.
BMI can be used to indicate if you are overweight, obese, underweight or normal. You can calculate your BMI by using our BMI Calculator.
Underweight = <18.5
Normal weight = 18.5–24.9
Overweight = 25–29.9
Obesity = BMI of 30 or greater
Please remember, however, that this is only one of many possible ways to assess your weight. If you have any concerns about your weight, please discuss them with Dr. Marvin who will be able to address your specific individual needs.
