   A morbidly obese person is someone who is very overweight to the

   point that it can often cause a shorter lifespan and health

   problems.

   According to the BMI scale:

   Underweight: < 18.5

   Ideal: 18.5-24.9

   Overweight: 25-29.9

   Obese: 30-39.9

   Morbidly obese: 40-49.9

   Super morbidly obese: 50+

   BMI (Body Mass Index) is a calculation of height and weight.
