An easy way to see if you are 'overweight' is by trying our Body Mass Index calculator (also known as a BMI calculator). Based on simple measurements all our body mass index calculator does is tell you whether your weight is in proportion to your your height.
The relation between fatness and your Body Mass Index differs with age and gender - for example, women will tend to have a higher percent of body fat than men for the same BMI. However, if you are categorised as either Overweight or Obese you should consult with your doctor, because as your BMI rises, so does your risk for some common diseases, including cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, osteoarthritis, diabetes and some cancers.
