    This thread suggests our perspective of “normal” may have changed.

    thegreatape » 38 (178cm / 120kg) which puts me squarely in the BMI is a load of bollocks camp.

    For a bit of perspective you are very nearly ( a couple of pounds short) the combined weight of me and my GF and you’re the same height as me….

    BMI of 23 🙂


    1.97m tall, just under 90 kilos, so a BMI of between 22 and 23.

    Marvel at my svelte form!

    Actually, since I’ve done nothing for two months, I’m probably sliding towards the upper limit of acceptable for my BMI now. I need to get my arse into gear and get training again. I hate seeing myself with a gut.


    Just had a look on the Nhs website


    165, 58kg and 36 y o female, still think I have heavy bones!



    I was offered a medicall recently so had it on Friday. They assess your family history and do cholestral tests etc.

    Anyway I had a bmi of 26. 4.3 cholesterol BP of 132/84 and was told I had a 7% chance of developing heart disease. The average is 7.7%. I’m 53, 6’4″ and 15st 7ib.

    I’d prefer to be 15st but as I’m already very active it’s unlikely!

    5’2″ & 9 stone 3lb & 47yrs old (next week) BMI of 23.5, i could actually lose a stone i suppose.
    I can maintain an 18 mph solo average on my midweek solo rides & that’s my personal measure of fitness 😉


    Turned 40 this year so had my free NHS health review the other week, BMI was 23.6 (I think). 1% chance of a heart attack.

    12 stone on the dot @ 5ft 11 and fittest I’ve ever been. Having said that my mates think I look too thin and have cat aids – also find it strange I don’t drink that much.

    Also, want to lead a healthier lifestlye than my parents and avoid problems in later life.
