An individual is classified as overweight if she/he has a body mass index (BMI) of 25-30, and obese if BMI is over 30. You can calculate your BMI here.
If you are overweight or obese, losing just 10% of your body weight may reduce your risk of premature death by 20-25%, your risk of dying from a diabetes-related condition by 30%, and your risk of dying of cancer by 40%. You will probably also feel much better, inside and out.
