    The UK has more obese women than any other country in Europe, according to European Union figures. Data agency Eurostat, which looked at 19 countries, found nearly a quarter of UK women - 23.9% - were recorded as being obese in the year 2008 to 2009. Just over 22% of UK men were classed as obese, coming second only to Malta.

    A person is defined as obese if their body mass index (BMI), which is calculated by dividing body weight by body height squared, is 30 or above. And he or she is classed as overweight if their BMI is between 25 and 30. The BMI correlates fairly well with body fat.

    After the UK, the countries with the highest levels of female obesity were Malta, with 21.1%, and Latvia, where 20.9% fulfilled that criteria. Meanwhile, after Malta and the UK, the countries with the highest instances of male obesity were Hungary - where 21.4% fall into that category - and the Czech Republic, where 18.4% are classed as such.

    The UK's high levels of obesity are in stark contrast to those in countries such as Romania, where just 8% of women were classed as obese along with 7.6% of men. Obesity levels were also found to be low in Italy, Bulgaria and France. In Italy, 9.3% of women were found to be obese and 11.3% men.

    Meanwhile, in Bulgaria levels of obesity for women and men were found to be 11.3% and 11.6%, with levels of France identified as being 12.7% and 11.7% respectively. The figures suggested that the proportion of women who are obese or overweight falls as the educational level rises.

    How to work out your BMI

    • Work out your height in metres and multiply the figure by itself
    • Measure your weight in kilograms
    • Divide the weight by the height squared
    • For example, if you are 1.6m (5ft 3in) tall and weigh 65kg (10st 3lb), the calculation would then be: 65 รท (1.6 x 1.6 = 2.56) = 25.39
    • A BMI of less than 18.5 is underweight
    • A BMI of 18.5-25 is ideal
    • A BMI of 25-30 is overweight
    • A score of 30 or above is obese
    Calculate you BMI here: BBC - Health: BMI calculator (imperial)

    Kuna arguments nyingi kuhusu this calculation as it is proven that the bone density of some races is higher than others, hivo mtu anaweza kua na 26 or 27 but not as much fat as mtu wa 23 or 22 if they come from different races.Ila in extreme cases (chini ya 18 au juu ya 30) it is agreed kuna shida.Ingine fairly easy for 'average' people but completly wrong for extremes ni kuandika uzito in kg, then compare the 2 last diggit with your own weight.ex: 175 cm ni sawa 'sample' akiwa between 70 and 80kg. But this does not apply to a kid who is 110cm or a guy who is 210cm.

    At least you're "clinically obese" not "clinically severe obesity". Hata hivyo kwa vile unajitambua, chukua hatua. Wimbo wa Winehouse wa "Rehab" ambao ana kashifu kwenda kwenye Rehab (hospitali/kliniki za walevi kupona ulevi wao) (kwako wewe gym) umemfikisha wapi? Nisingependa u-move from "clinically obese" not "clinically severe obesity". Afterall kuwa fit sio lazima uende gym.

    ni kweli kabisa, wengi wetu hatujui uzito wala kimo. Kwanza hatuna desturi ya kujipima mara kwa mara.
