A BMI over 20 is considered "high normal."

over 20 is not a high BMI, considering woman cant reproduce when

theyre under 18, id say like 23 would be starting to get a little

heavy. I think the person who replyed to this first has a distorted

image of "a few extra pounds".

A normal bmi is in the range 18.5 - 25, try

pounds you need to lose or gain to have a normal bmi.

Keep in mind that girls have to weigh more because of our
breasts and our hips. And overweight is not what you weigh, but
your body max index which is your height to your weight. This is
the scale for girls.
For a boy, anything shorter than 5'2" at 122 is overweight and
anything taller than 5'4" is healthy.

### Is 9stone overweight for a 11 year old?

If you measure how tall he/she is, you can work out their 'bmi'.
This tells you whether they are overweight, underweight, normal,
obese etc. However, by the sound of it, no. I don't believe this
weight is overweight.
To work out his/her 'bmi', the formula is:
Body Mass Index (BMI) = weight ÷ (height)²
Obese = 30 and over Overweight = 25 and over (BMI)
Underweight = 20 and Under

###### Asked in Body Mass Index

### Is a bmi of 25 to 30 percent healthy?

A BMI of 25-30 would be considered to be in the overweight
range, and therefore would carry a higher health risk. Some people
can still have a BMI in the overweight range and be perfectly
healthy, though. It depends on your build and the amount of muscle
mass you have. Talk to your doctor if you're concerned!
