metric conversion: weight in pound/2.2 = weight in kg
weight in inch x 2.54= height in cm
If your BMI is over 23 (overweight), ask your healthcare professional for a safe and effective
way to lose weight and keep in shape.
BMI > 40 : very obese
2. Waist/hip ratio: Men should not more than 1. Women;not more than 0.85
