Obesity is one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide. As being overweight and obese makes an individual vulnerable to other likely associated chronic and life-long diseases. It is obvious now-a-days, that abnormal BMI is very prevalent and needs a lot of attention from health authorities as well as all the people around the globe in order to prevent or cure obesity and other long term diseases linked to obesity. A well stated and reviewed questionnaire was distributed among students age between 20-28 of different universities to collect data about their weight, height, smoking habits, drinking habits, workout time, social media usage time and other necessary parameters. This study was carried out to find out any related association between the mentioned parameters and their effects on BMI. According to our findings, it is evident that tea intake, smoking and physical exercise are not fairly associated with abnormal BMI and other factors can put an effect in BMI sidewise.
