How Do I Know if I’m Overweight or Obese?
Being overweight or obese is a health epidemic plaguing the nation. More than 37% of adults in the United States are obese, and over 70% are overweight.
If your body mass index (BMI) is over 30, you meet the criteria for a diagnosis of clinical obesity, and if it’s between 25 and 29.9, you’re officially overweight. You can calculate your BMI by dividing your weight in kilograms by your height in meters squared, or you can google a BMI calculator.
