This Chart Shows How People With The Same BMI Can Look Different

BMI ain't nothin' but a number?

BMI results are classified into four categories: underweight, normal weight, overweight, or obese.

If your BMI is below 18.5, you're considered underweight. Between 18.5–24.9, you're considered to have a normal or healthy weight. Between 25.0–29.9 is considered overweight, and 30 and above is considered obese.

That's because BMI doesn't actually take the percentage of your fat and muscle tissues into account — and that's (partially) what's responsible for the way you look. So one person's 22.8 BMI might look very different than another's.
