Body Mass Index (BMI) is a useful measure to find out whether you are a healthy weight for your height or considered to be overweight or obese.
Your BMI is also useful to work out your ideal/target weight before you embark on a weight loss programme.

If your BMI is between 25 and 29.9 you're overweight.
If your BMI is between 30 and 39.9 you're obese.
