Are You Overweight?

If you're not sure whether you are overweight, don't go solely by what the scale says. An adult is considered overweight when he or she has a body mass index (BMI) between 25 and 29.9, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. An adult with a BMI of 30 or more is considered obese. BMI is a standard that takes into account your height as well as your weight.
