Adult Wt|Ht Obesity Chart

Use this chart to estimate your obesity level based on your weight and height. An example is shown for an individual who weighs 80 kg (176 lbs) and stands 1.75 meters (175 cm or 69 inches) tall. Those measurements put that individual into the "overweight" category.

This chart is to be used for adult data (male or female).

To convert pounds to kilograms divide by 2.2.
To convert inches to meters multiply by 0.0254.
