Anyone care to post their result?

Mine is "Your BMI result is: 22.78, You are in the healthy weight range" :o

You are very obese and your health will benefit from specialist medical and dietary advice - especially before embarking on any kind of exercise regimen.




Good job I'm sexy as ***** to disguise it!

Edit: What a stupid website - according to that, I could put over 10 stone on and still be in exactly the same grouping.

BMI is pretty crap really. It's a very crude method of defining your level of obesity but using a formula based on your height and weight.

It doesn't work for anyone who is more than averagely fit, since muscle weighs more than fat. Nor does it work for anyone still in their teens or over the age of 65.

If you have a high BMI then you probably already know your are overweight in any case.

Mine is 27.7 anyway.

While this solution worked, it was fundamentally flawed, creating the otherwise contradictory systemic anomaly, that, if left unchecked, might threaten the system itself. Ergo, those who refused the program, while a minority, would constitute an escalating probability of disaster.

Do you think this last post thing is OCD? I mean, it should be much more difficult. You should have to give a well-rounded, pertinent summary and round-up of the whole of each thread, on every thread, for over 700 pages of threads, to do this. Surely. ;)

I once did this last year at around 03:30 after a large session on the booze. I found it hilarious while I did it.

Unfortunately, nobody else did and it was ignored. Still, it's like having a wank at work: exciting the first time as you think you're getting paid for it. Then the novelty wears off. Which is what the cleaners must have been wishing the next morning.

Xoggoth and I used to argue who had the most "thread kills": who posted last and killed a thread dead.

It was a close run.

Thing is, I am half-cut, and this is a bit of a laugh - but you do worry if this means A Great Deal to the last-poster in question, and you'll be dead-threaded for the rest of your board-dom.

It's an urban myth, think about it, 1 pound of muscle weighs 1 pound, 1 pound of fat weighs 1 pound.

The point is you can be the same height and BMI as someone who is fat, but you could look fairly lean. It's best to take you BMI and also check how much fat you have around the waist and under arm via a caliper.

It's OK saying BMI is crap but if you have rolls of fat, you are fat!

Erm... I meant the muscle is denser than Fat, so by volume, muscule is heavier, but I see your point. That must explain the vast discrepancy between this result and the one I had when BMI was measured with little wires sellotaped all over me.

Well my BMI is 31, but according to thier figures when I was 19 and doing 2-3 hours of physical exercise a day my BMI was 28. Considering that at the time I was skinny as a rake and had a 32" waist I tend to think of BMI as as a load of old tosh.


I'm overweight at the moment, but that does not mean that i'm not fit, and that I don't have a healthy diet. I'm just not as fit as I used to be and my metabolism has probably slowed down as I have got older leading to me gaining some weight.

Yes per volume muscle is heaver, my BMI comes out as 25.3 which means I'm slightly overweight. But, I go to the gym 4 times a week and use weights. On elctromagnetic measuring equipment my body fat is around 16%, which is def not overweight. BMI tells you little about lean body mass.

Probably because those of us who were extemely active while younger and have now put on a bit of weight have BMI's that imply we are substantially more overweight than we are.

Note that I did not say I was not overweight, just that i'm not as overweight as my BMI implies.
