The BMI Scale is ******** and should not be trusted. It only takes in account height and weight not muscle mass or density.

BMI is ****** . You see this man, Terry Crews? Because his weight tops his height, he is considered to be "Obese", and is a part of these statistics. Dont listen to these statistics.

The BMI chart is made by insurance companies. They do a very harsh generalization of everything that way they can charge more and offer less compensation saying "oh, your a fat **** so you are higher risk".

Which is actually not true. a bit a weight behind you helps you recover faster because your body has something to "eat" while it's out of commission. My wife and daughter are super skinny and take about a week to get other something. I'm fairly chunky and rarely get sick and when I do I'm pretty much up in a day.

I had a friend who was 6'6 and 230ish. The test said he was morbidly obese.

According to the bmi scale i'm borderline underweight :(
User avatar #33 - DmOnZ (04/19/2013) [-]
They should really tell you if these states where collected using BMI or an actual legitimate and accurate gauge of body fat. If BMI, than this is woefully inaccurate and incorrect. That beings said, since I do study human physiology, I can confirm that the United States, as a nation on AVERAGE (key word there is average), is overweight (but not Obese).

My class at Marquette actually went over all of these graphs today in my physiology lecture, and I'm now very suspicious that one of the other students in my major goes on FJ.... WHO ARE YOU?

and you realize this is absolute ******** right? it only takes into account for weight and height, it doesn't consider muscle density or anything like that, so a bodybuilder or someone muscular would be considered obese according to this chart

I want to feel proud that Connecticut has lower obesity than the rest of the country, but it doesn't mean much.
