3. How Obesity Is Measured
Obesity can be measured by various techniques, but the most common methods being used are Body Mass Index (BMI) and Waist Circumference.
Body Mass Index
BMI is a person’s weight in kilograms divided by height in square meter (BMI = kg/m2). It is important to understand what a “healthy weight” is. Healthy weight is defined as a body mass index (BMI) equal to or greater than 19 and less than 25 among people above 20 years of age.
The World Health Organization uses a classification system using the BMI to define overweight and obesity.
Waist circumference is a less-common method used to measure obesity in an individual. This simple measurement indicates obesity and morbid obesity in adults by measuring your waist. To find your waist circumference, you have to wrap a measuring tape around the area above your hip bone and below your rib cage.
For females, a waist circumference of 35 inches or greater is considered unhealthy. For men, a waist circumference of 40 inches or greater is considered unhealthy. There is no chart or range that specifies obesity, only the simple measurements are used as a parameter to determine obesity.
