How to know when to start controlling overweight? Overall, the Body Mass Index (which measures the ratio of weight obesity height) will tell us if we are overweight or not.

(Height squared) kilos Then divide the result by the square of the height, that is obesity, 56 = 25.39, and thus get a BMI (in this example 25.39)

Overweight if the BMI is between 25 and 29.9 A from a BMI of 30 to 34.9 is considered that the person is obese and therefore should consider carrying out some types of treatment for obesity.
