Overweight or Underweight?

A lot of people think they're overweight even though they aren't. Just because you don't measure up to a supermodel doesn't mean you're bigger than you should be! In fact everybody should have some body fat.

How to get to know whether you are overweight or underweight? Calculate your BMI! 
The Body Mass Index (BMI) is a measurement tool that compares your height to your weight and gives you an indication of whether you are overweight, underweight or at a healthy weight for your height.

Calculate your BMI by entering your height and weight below and find out whether you are overweight?

BMI Categories:
* Underweight = <18.5
* Normal weight = 18.5 - 24.9
* Overweight = 25 - 29.9
* Obesity = BMI of 30 or greater

If the BMI-test shows that you are overweight (a BMI number exceeding 25) you should consider doing something about it for the sake of your health.

** This test is meant as a guide only, and should not replace a visit to your doctor to discuss weight problems. The BMI test should not be used by body-builders as the weight of the extra muscles could interfere with the calculation.
