Am I overweight?
For adults, overweight and obesity ranges are determined by using your weight and height to calculate a number called your “Body Mass Index” or BMI. For most people, BMI is a good indicator of their amount of body fat. An adult who has a BMI between 25 and 29.9 is considered overweight, and an adult who has a BMI of 30 or higher is considered obese. To calculate your BMI, click here.
For children and teens, BMI ranges and calculations are done differently and they take into account the normal differences in body fat between girls and boys, as well as differences at various ages. To calculate your child's BMI, click here.
Causes of weight gain
Weight goes up due to several reasons.
Lifestyle reasons. Not sleeping enough, not eating on time, sedentary lifestyle, eating excessively, and eating larger meals after 2pm are some common reasons.
Biochemical reasons. Premenstrual syndrome, hypothyroidism, congestive heart failure, postpartum depression, ovarian cancer, pituitary cancer, diabetic nephropathy, alcoholic liver disease, dysthymia, bipolar disease, cushing syndrome, hashimotos disease, acromegaly, gestational diabetes and many digestive hormones can trigger weight gain.
Stress. Subconscious stress is a common cause of every systemic disease. Weight gain or obesity are not different. Its important to address the stress to get a more accurate understanding about life and living.
Overweight or obese?
Doctors usually define "overweight" as a condition in which a person's weight is 10%-20% higher than "normal," as defined by a standard height/weight chart, or as a body mass index (BMI) of 25 to 30.
Obesity is usually defined as a condition in which a person's weight is 20% or more above normal weight or as a BMI of 30 or more. "Morbid obesity" means a person is either 50%-100% over normal weight, more than 100 pounds over normal weight, or sufficiently overweight to severely interfere with health or normal functioning.
Approximately 60 million Americans, nearly one-third of all adults and about one in five children, are obese. In 2008, only one state -- Colorado -- had an obesity rate less than 20%.
There are several tests that can be performed to determine if you are overweight or obese. But, measuring the exact amount of a person's body fat is not an easy task. Some tests are more accurate than others.
