Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between obesity and being overweight?
While being overweight can have negative side effects, obesity is the threshold at which it is considered a medical condition. When body fat accumulates to the level of obesity it significantly increases a person’s likelihood of developing the conditions listed above, including diabetes, vascular and heart disorders and many other potentially dangerous conditions that could lead to a shorter life expectancy or reduced quality of life.
At what weight am I considered obese?
In the most simplistic terms, the medical community considers a person obese when they weigh more than 20% over what they should for their height. A person who is more than 100 pounds over their ideal weight is considered morbidly obese.
Most health care professionals view obesity in terms of a patient’s Body Mass Index (BMI). A person with a BMI between 25 and 29.9 is considered to be overweight. Individuals with BMIs between 30 and 39.9 are obese, and those with BMIs above 40 are considered morbidly obese.
How is a person’s BMI calculated?
Your BMI is calculated by dividing your weight in kilograms by the square of your body height in meters.
