bod·y mass in·dex

Body mass index (BMI) is a measure of body fat based on height and weight (weight to height ratio) that applies to adult men and women. Enter your weight and height using standard or metric measures. (1)

From wikipedia stated that The BMI is an attempt to quantify the amount of tissue mass (muscle, fat, and bone) in an individual, and then categorize that person as underweight, normal weight, overweight, or obese based on that value (2)

The WHO regards a BMI of less than 18.5 as underweight and may indicate malnutrition, an eating disorder, or other health problems, while a BMI equal to or greater than 25 is considered overweight and above 30 is considered obese. These ranges of BMI values are valid only as statistical categories. (2)
