Through the body mass index (BMI), one can estimate adiposity and therefore you are above your ideal weight or Obese .

The advantage of using BMI is that its calculation is simple, fast and requires no special equipment, but due to its simplicity and for not taking into account the size of the person among others, can not be considered a medium free of errors. BMI can not distinguish the proportions of muscle, fat, bone, and body water. Therefore, its use is not recommended for athletes and children, for example.

Despite these disadvantages, the body mass index has been used by the World Health Organization as a tool for statistics on obesity in the world.
