Are you a healthy weight?
The Body Mass Index (BMI) is a way to determine whether your weight is healthy or not. It is considered a more useful measurement than weight. In Europe, a body mass index of over 25 is considered overweight and a body mass index of over 30 is considered obese.

Body Mass Index (BMI) is a simple index of weight-for-height that is commonly used to classify underweight, overweight and obesity in adults. It is defined as the weight in kilograms divided by the square of the height in metres (kg/m2). For example, an adult who weighs 70kg and whose height is 1.75m will have a BMI of 22.9.
