Wouldn't it just be easier if everyone was honest with themselves? It seems that rather than simplifying and making things objective, all these different formulas have just complicated things even further and become borderline useless anyways.

Well, objectivity is required when you're into bodybuilding or whatever and you need an objective measure to grade and help tweak any eating or training programmes. A reasonably intelligent person should be able to figure out the validity and limitations of the various metrics. 

When it comes to general health, it seems that honesty isn't easy to expect from someone with a weight issue, particularly as many like myself believe that almost always psychological issues that lead to eating disorders. Many obese/anorexic folks have developed strong defense mechanisms to cope with the anxiety that comes with their weight and denial is one of the most common.

As a surfer, not many things are cringier than someone trying to use trite surf/skate lingo that hasn't been uttered since Wayne's World.

Tylerthegloob, did you get a proper shortboard deck or one of those tiny things I see the kids on these days?

I still have scars from my youth, buddies and I walking to the train station with our surfboards and hearing "Cowabanga!", "Watch out for the sharks" and "Hey, dude!" at least 20X a trip over the span of a few years.

Don't mock the eye serum, you wish you were half as pretty as me.

Today’s readings... they don’t make any sense at all.


Addendum: up from 33 last week. No way 7 kg of fat added! I haven’t eaten 7 kg of food!

The readings mean youíre obese. You think youíre not but you are. I donít want to be a jerk Ďcause youíre a nice guy, but thatís the truth. A lot of folks are in denial. Thatís human nature.

PSA: If your BMI says youíre overweight, you probably are. If your BMI says youíre obese, you probably are.

LI, LI, LI.  He's not dense (uh, no, that wasn't a fat joke, I swear!). He's proclaiming disbelief over the recent change in BMI, not over the fact that his BMI is above average.

The post was recently edited. I'll leave up what I wrote as a public service announcement. BMI is usually (but not always) accurate.

Most doctors say it is the best method they have, it's pretty accurate, can be measured simply in clinic and is acceptable to patients.

"It works in the vast majority of people, the vast majority of time," says Prof Naveed Sattar, from the University of Glasgow.


https://www.bbc.com/news/health-43895508

But does it work for everyone?

No, not all.

And this provoked a few comments along these lines: "Why, in this day and age, are you using BMI to tell people they are overweight? It is an outdated method that does not take into consideration muscle and actual health! I am extremely fit and healthy with a low body fat percentage, yet your BMI tells me (and many more self-conscious girls) that I am overweight!"

There are some people who carry a lot of muscle and little fat, like bodybuilders, boxers and rugby players.

Muscle is much denser than fat so they may end up with a BMI that classes them as obese, despite the fact they may be fit and healthy.

But this is thought to apply to fewer than 1% of the population. Most people aren't extreme athletes.

Tim Cole, professor of medical statistics, at University College London Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health, said BMI was "still extremely relevant".

"You don't see many bodybuilders around but you do see lots of people with large waists. Many people get exercised about that wrongly."
