    “BMI” stands for “body mass index” and is a measure of how overweight a person is. A person’s B.M.I. tells if that person is overweight and, if so, whether that person is obese. There are two ways to determine your BMI using height and weight in pounds.
    One method of calculating BMI is to take your lbs and multiply them by 703. Then take your height in inches and square that number. Then divide the first number by the second number.f you have a BMI of 25 to 30, you are considered overweight. If you have a BMI of 30 to 40, you are considered obese. If you have a BMI over 40, you are generally considered morbidly obese.
    I hope you have got good answer.
