What Is Overweight?

Overweight means one weighs more than what is generally considered healthy for a given height. This healthy weight is determined using the body mass index (BMI). Calculate your BMI and interpret the results.

For more information about BMI or to schedule an appointment, contact the Weight Management Center at Houston Methodist Hospital at 832-667-LOSE or loseweight@houstonmethodist.org.

Weight Management

Being overweight has become an epidemic in the United States, where about 66 percent of all adults are overweight or obese. For women in particular, the risk of becoming overweight or obese continues to grow. In fact, over the past decade, obesity has become 15 percent more prevalent among women. If you are one of the many struggling to control your weight, you're not alone — and the Weight Management Center can help.
