The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute defines ‘overweight’ as a BMI value between 25 and 29.9, and ‘obesity’ as a BMI value greater than or equal to 30. If your BMI is between 17 to 22, your life span might be longer than average, if you are considered overweight you are statistically likely to have a lower life expectancy.
Underweight = <18.5 Normal weight = 18.5-24.9 Overweight = 25-29.9 Obesity = BMI of 30 or greater
