I`m obese!

BUT my doctor told me I`m big-boned, and a lot of me is muscle... so the government is WRONG! The doctor says I`m 10 pounds overweight as far as FAT goes....

According to this, I can gain 41 pounds and still be okay. At 142 I`d be overweight.

Although as we all know, BMI is rubbish as it doesn`t take into account muscle tone at all.

im a little over weight, im just a big guy tho. wide shouldes and what not. almost every teacher in high school either asked me if i was on the football teem or tried to get me to join it... anyways according to that i would have to starve to death befor i was government approved. win i was thinking of joining the army the recruiter i talked to said right away that i could ignore the weight requirements based on height cause its not possible for me to meet them and be healthy.

I have no problem with the fact that I am overweight. I know I am. I know I also need to slim down to be healthier. The idea that I am "obese" is just off... because I`m not. I think the government changed the standards because of the rise of truly obese people climbing higher and higher...

6`2" and 154 lbs is approved. Skin and bones. Lol.

I think a lot of people are used to seeing people that are a bit overweight and its so commonplace that people dont notice it anymore. But even so, BMI tests are a load of crap. They don`t factor in body fat percentage or how you are built, or how much muscle you have or anything.

And, there`s nothing wrong with being mildly overweight as long as you are healthy.

I put down 500 pounds (I`m 5 ft). I get the point and all, but no, a 500 pound 5 ft person isn`t "fat like Matt Leblanc."

Then I added a 100 pounds and they finally conceded I might have issues...yea, I might be dead if I weighed that much.

this thing is stupid though because guys and girls body fat is different, and if your a weightlifter or an athlete you would obviously weigh more than someone who sits inside and plays WOW all day. plus, a BMI of 18.5 is the minimum for supermodels now, and im just barely 19.5 and im pretty normal.

It`s a body MASS index not a body FAT index.

It`s not an opinion or a judgment call,if it says you`re overweight (not the same thing as "too much fat")than you are.

Didn`t mean weight goals. I should`ve said the weight category for "overweight" is unrealistic, even if you have little muscle mass.
0
Reply
Male 1,882
1) BMI doesn`t take into account muscle mass, which IS healthy to have.

2) Weight goals are unrealistic. "Overweight" isn`t really overweight. Supposedly, you only start having health risks at 30 BMI.

3) You shouldn`t have to have a meter or calculator to tell if you are overweight or obese, or too skinny. Then again, some people live in denial. If you can`t see your feet, it is likely you are overweight.

innergoth- i hope they realise that muscle weights more then fat.

A pound of muscle weighs no more than a pound of fat
Muscle is more dense so less muscle is equal in weight to more fat than the amount of muscle

Like saying one cup of muscle equals 1.5 cups of fat (i made that up)

the BMI system was invented in the 19th century and the scale has remained unchanged for about 200 years.

So the scale doesnt mean anything really, you cant figure out if youre too fat or not, since ppl are getting fatter and fatter

right - all you 13-17 year olds can calm down. This scale doesn`t apply to you. It also doesn`t differentiate between males and females which is nonsense, given the different body muscle amounts in each. Finally muscle weights a load more than fat. if you want to know if you`re fat or not look in a mirror. Does your belly stick out? Then ease up on the doughnuts
