    Body mass is calculated by dividing your height by your weight. Normal body mass index is between 19 and 25 percent. Overweight is considered 25-30 percent and obese is anything over 30 percent. This means a 6 foot man weighing between 220-225 pounds is just on the edge of being obese. Below is a calculator for your body mass index. http://www.nhlbisupport.com/bmi/

    Some body fat is needed for essential body functions such as regulation of body temperature, cushioning and insulation of organs, and to provide energy.  Obese women have a body fat percentage of 32% or more and obese men have a body fat percentage of 25% or more.  Women have higher fat levels to ensure safe pregnancies.
