This BMI is the person's BMI = weight divided by kilogram divided by the height square in meters.
But generally a BMI of 18.5 to 24.9 is considered appropriate.
25 to 29.5 BMI is considered overweight and having a BMI above 30 is a sign of obesity. To reduce obesity, it is necessary to control weight and make lifestyle changes.
