We divide the BMI into seven cases:

• Severely underweight: BMI < 15
• Underweight: 15 < BMI < 18.5
• Healthy weight: 18.5< BMI < 25
• Overweight or obesity: 25 < BMI < 30
• Moderately obese (Class 1): 30 < BMI< 35
• Severely obese (Class 2): 35 < BMI< 40
• Very severely obese (Class 3): 40 < BMI

BMI is defined as a person's weight divided by the square of his height:

• English BMI Formula:
BMI = (Weight in Pounds / (Height in inches x Height in inches )) x 703

• Metric BMI Formula:
BMI = Weight in Kilograms / ( Height in Meters x Height in Meters )

Examples : Mr Green is 5 feet 10 inches (70 inches; 178 cm) tall, weighs 200 lbs (90 kg)
BMI= (200 lbs / (70 inches* 70 inches))*703
BMI=28.7 he is overweight.
