A person’s BMI or body mass index is calculated by taking his or her weight in kilograms divided by his or her height in meters squared. A BMI less than 18.5 is considered underweight; 18.5 to 24.9 is normal weight; 25 to 29.9 is overweight; 30 to 39.9 is obese; and 40 or higher is extremely obese.
