In brief: BMI

Ideally body mass index should not be higher than 25.
Nor should it be lower than 20. What is your BMI?

In brief: BMI

In general, ideal BMI should be between 20-25.
A BMI of 25-30 is overweight, and BMI's over 30 are considered obese. However, it should also be noted that BMI does not take into account body composition (muscle/fat).
