The standard weight status categories associated with BMI ranges for adults are shown in the following table:

 
BMI  Weight Status 
Below 18.5 Underweight
18.5-24.9 Normal
25.0-29.9 Overweight
30.0 and above Obese

This interpretation reflects standard weight categories for adults 20 years and older.  The results should not apply to children where age and gender play a factor.   

BMI is used as a screening tool to identify possible weight problems for adults, however, BMI is not a diagnostic tool. To determine if excess weight is a health risk for you, a healthcare provider would need to perform further assessments. These assessments might include skinfold thickness measurements, evaluations of diet, physical activity, family history and other appropriate health screenings.
