Some places, like the VA Hospitals, still use the BMI (Body Mass
Index)

BMI =
( Weight in Pounds / ( Height in inches x Height in inches ) ) x 703


BMI                    Weight Status
Below 18.5         Underweight
18.5 - 24.9         Normal
25 - 29.9            Overweight
30.0 & Above     Obese

Remember; Factors such as race and athleticism can affect weight status
results.

For example, an athlete muscular in build may be classed as being
overweight when they're actual weight should be categorized as 'normal'.

The these formulas are only one factor that helps provide a general
indication as to whether an individual is overweight.
