    From the comment on the bottom of the site....
    But they didn`t tell you that the insurance companies have DECREASED the average weight per height during that same period. Average weight for 6 ft 1 in 1985 was 210 lbs.; in 2010 the weight is 180 lbs. See, you manipulate the facts very easily.

    Now tell us how your really feel about the US.

    Oh and the BMI index? It gives me a 27.8 and says I`m `overweight` when I`m nowhere near it.

    You also have to check the definition of "Obese", according to Government BMI scales I`m obese (BMI of 33), I`m 5`10" and weigh 230, I can also run 3 miles in 27 minutes, bench press 225 for 15 reps, and do 17 strict pull ups (chin over bar). So there.

    I had a BMI of 32 when I got kicked out the military, even though I had 9% body fat.

    People in general are just getting bigger. The old height weight standards don`t apply.
