1. CDC's BMI calculator

https://www.cdc.gov/healthyweight/assessing/bmi/adult_bmi/english_bmi_calculator/bmi_calculator.html

Adult obesity statistics, CDC
https://www.cdc.gov/obesity/data/adult.html

Unfortunately I can't find where they have percent of the adult population that is overweight (BMI 25-30). Obesity is BMI 30 and above.

Edited to add -- thanks to whopis01 in #17 below for the CDC link

Percent of adults aged 20 and over with obesity: 42.5% (2017-2018)
Percent of adults aged 20 and over with overweight, including obesity: 73.6% (2017-2018)


So that means 73.6% - 42.5% = 31.1% are overweight but not obese
