30.4

That's a rough guess - I'm 6'4" and although I haven't weight myself recently, about 250 lbs.

Oilyrags, Friday, 11 April 2008 19:09 (thirteen years ago) link

bmi is a pretty meaningless metric

J0rdan S., Friday, 11 April 2008 19:11 (thirteen years ago) link

Yeah, probably so, Elmo. I'm not going to post a picture of me with my shirt off (fortunately for everyone) but I'm not what most people think of as a fattey. Just tall and with a bit of beer gut.

in order to have a BMI in the "normal" range i would have to weigh 190 lbs. or less which means i would look like i just came from Dachau

BMI's really a poor indicator of health, though, especially if you're really muscular, out of shape, or really tall or short.

mh, Friday, 11 April 2008 19:26 (thirteen years ago) link

F'real. I work on the tenth story and I can walk it without getting winded.

chicago kevin, Friday, 11 April 2008 19:28 (thirteen years ago) link

I can run a few miles without too much trouble, I just probably consume a few too many calories.

And when I say "27 range," I mean 27.1. Which I only mention because otherwise it looks like I'm trying to look good by calling a 27.9 a 27.

Seem to have misplaced our scales but last time I checked I was under ten stone, which would put me at under 19. May have put on a few pounds since then though.

Yeah, BMI is weird. Right now I'm about 10 pounds over the weight at which I look best. If I were to lose enough weight to get to the middle of the "normal" range, I'd look disgustingly skinny. Maybe it's because I'm tall?

look at that blubber fly. muscle mass plays havoc with bmi accuracy.

i'm about 19 too, none of that pesky muscle to bother me. i'm sure i was perfectly healthy when i was around the 18 mark, though. but i guess that diet of chocolate and crisps w/ dip has done wonders for me.

Move over BMI, there's a new sheriff in town:

BMI or Body Mass Index, a ratio of weight to height, has long been considered one of the best measures for assessing overall health risk.Getting your BMI into a healthy range used to be considered a top health priority. However, recent research shows that there is a new
sheriff in town: your waist-to-height ratio (WHtR). Studies now indicate
that WHtR is a much better measure than BMI for assessing obesity and cardiovascular risk.

Well, if you're 6' tall and have a 24" waist, there should be cause for concern.

WOMEN
• Ratio less than 35: Abnormally Slim to Underweight
• Ratio 35 to 42: Extremely Slim
• Ratio 42 to 46: Healthy
• Ratio 46 to 49: Healthy
• Ratio 49 to 54: Overweight
• Ratio 54 to 58: Seriously Overweight
• Ratio over 58: Highly Obese

MEN
• Ratio less than 35: Abnormally Slim to Underweight
• Ratio 35 to 43: Extremely slim
• Ratio 43 to 46: Healthy
• Ratio 46 to 53: Healthy, Normal Weight
• Ratio 53 to 58: Overweight
• Ratio 58 to 63: Extremely Overweight/Obese
• Ratio over 63: Highly Obese

24.5 = normal (just)

since xmas i now fast walk 4km a day (40 mins), and that has definitely helped me get back down to my usual 75kg as i had put on a couple of red wine enhanced kilos over lockdown.
but seems like the daily walk has helped me find the balance between enjoying wine and exercise.

A man in his 30s with no underlying health conditions was offered a Covid vaccine after an NHS error mistakenly listed him as just 6.2cm in height.

Liam Thorp was told he qualified for the jab because his measurements gave him a body mass index of 28,000.
