What Weight is Considered Obese?

What weight is considered obese will vary based on height. For example, 200 pounds is healthy for a man six feet tall, but would indicate obesity on a woman five feet tall. Also be aware that muscle weighs more than fat. Venus and Serena Williams, U.S. tennis pros in top physical form, probably have weights far above what is considered healthy for their heights because of their extensive muscle. To find out your obesity factor, see a doctor or do the pinch test. If you can pinch more than a few inches of fat anywhere on your body (minus your breasts, buttocks, and hips if you are a woman), this is excessive fat. If you are pinching six inches or more, this is a sign of obesity. Try eating a bit less and moving a bit more.
