Obesity Chart

Weight Chart to Calculate How Overweight or Obese

Guide to Measuring Adult Obesity

There is no definitive way of assessing obesity. However, many doctors use a height-weight system known as the Body Mass Index (BMI) as a rough guide to assessing obesity, including morbid or malignant obesity, among the general adult population.

Obesity Chart

Use the simplified chart (see below) of the BMI obesity level for men and women between the height of 4 feet 10 inches (1.47m) and 6 feet (1.83m).

How to Use the Obesity Chart

1. Find your height in the Height column

2. Look in the Obesity Point column to see when you become obese
