Body mass excess

Description

The body mass excess with respect to the healthy reference population, HRP, is defined as BME ≝ m/m°. A balanced BME is BME°=1.0. Considering a height of 1.7 m, overweight (BMI=25) is reached at a weight gain of 25 % (BME=1.25); obesity and severe obesity (BMI=30 and 35) are reached at a weight gain of 50 % and 75 % (BME=1.5 and 1.75, respectively).

Abbreviation: BME

Reference: Gnaiger 2019 MiP2019

Body mass index (BMI) and body mass excess (BME)

  • Reference (balanced): BME = 1.0
  • Overweight: BME ≥ 1.25
  • Obese: BME ≥ 1.5
