BMI is not a measure of health. It's crazy because I have always been underweight by that standard. 17.2 is the highest my BMI has ever been, despite having always ate lots of junk food and sweets. Yet no doctor has ever suggested I try to gain weight. But once you hit the overweight mark, you are immediately suggested to get back down into normal range. I don't think doctors should use BMI at all, really.

i dont understand this blog, are you seriously arguing that being fat is not unhealthy when there are hordes of studies showing direct correlation between high BMI and a large number of health issues. are you saying that being fat is the symptom not the cause?
