Male Speaker: We are going to discuss some things related to obesity and pregnancy. The first thing we ever talk about this medical thing that came up, a calculator called a BMI. The way it works is that if you are over 25, you consider it overweight. If you are over 30, you are obese, but we are going to talk later on in some of the video, not of 30 but most of these people in 40's and the 50's, these are morbid obese people. Do you agree? Female Speaker: Yes. Male Speaker: Okay, and the way of looking at obesity, it's just not a BMI, it's more things involved but at least it's a god starting. Female Speaker: Right, exactly. BMI Categories: Underweight=<18.5 Normal weight=18.5-24.9 Overweight=25-29.9 Obesity=BMI of 30 or greater
