Two methods are most commonly employed in determining healthy weight for an individual. The first is Body Mass Index, or BMI Scale, in which you can easily calculate BMI and determine your weight condition:
BMI = Weight (kg)/Height (m)2 or Weight (lbs)/Height (in)2 x 703
BMI < 20 = Underweight
20 < BMI < 25 = Ideal Weight
25 < BMI < 30 = Overweight
BMI > 30 = Obese
The second method is Waist Circumference (WC), which measures abdominal obesity,
WC > 88 cm (35 in) = Woman is abdominally obese
WC > 102 cm (40 in) = Man is abdominally obese
