government says anyone with a BMI of 30 or greater is "obese." (I hate
that word with a passion.) That is absolute nonsense. I am 5' 8" tall
and weigh 219 pounds. That's a BMI of 33.3. BMI doesn't take into
account muscle mass. It's a moronic, outdated, useless, worthless,
statistic. It should never be used to determine anything. By their
stupid definition, for me to be be considered "normal weight," I would
have to weigh between 122 pounds and 164 pounds.
If I weighed between 122 and 164 pounds, I would look like I was starving to death. Unfortunately, BMI is used by government bureaucrats and insurance companies. It shouldn't be used. It's a stupid statisic that means nothing.
