Don't worry: Or obsess about specific numbers or category names. Learn to eat less and exercise more so that you can develop a healthy lifestyle that you can live with for the rest of your life.

High BMI: That BMI puts you in an "overweight" category. You should do cardiovascular exercise on most days of the week, shooting for 30-60 minutes for each session. You also need to eat prudently and engage proper portion sizes. You should shoot for a BMI no higher than 25.
