    I can’t say I give a shit TBH

    Although, I’d hate to have the physique of a 13 yr old gymnast that some seem to think is OK

    How did you manage to find such a dull article?

    How did you manage to find such a dull article?

    I’m sure if you ask Ian nicely, he can dumb it down to your level. Possibly add some pictures.

    And what’s your level Jamie? Saying things behind a keyboard that I very much doubt you’d have the balls to say to someone’s face?

    Well done.

    I can’t speak for jamie, but I’d have no trouble saying such things to someone’s face. It’s just normal light hearted banter. Or do you have visions of the only way to say such things is with an angry red face, veins bulging on you’re forehead with a wound out neck? πŸ˜€

    BMI was never designed as an individual measure, it’s a broad-brush, simple, rough guide calculation to allow a generalised comparison between population groups, not individuals. It’s a fairly meaningless measure, whether you’re a skinny wee ****, a “big-boned athlete” or a straight out-and-out fatass. People obsess over this far too much…

    PS – I fit into the “big-boned athlete” category. I’d be skinny if I didn’t love beer and pies so much… πŸ™‚

    I suspect I probably fit in the biffer in denial category. Pretty normal BMI, but not much muscle and probably quite a bit more fat than I’d own up to πŸ™‚

    Pies and beer make your bones bigger – I’ve got skinny wrists and ankles so I might give it a go πŸ˜‰

    Whenever the subject of BMI comes up, they’ll be a variety of biffers claiming that BMI is inaccurate, and they’re not really biffers, but just big boned athletes.
    Meanwhile all the people with a normal BMI smile at the chubbsters in denial.
    Well wipe that smile away, because 39% of you with normal BMIs are lard buckets also πŸ˜€

    BMI is just under 26 for me, but I’ve never regarded it as a useful measure for individuals.

    To be <25 I’d need to be below 14st 4lbs, which would pretty much take me back to teenage years

    I’m not reading that, there’s no piccy’s!

    22.7

    I’m pretty lean.

    I’m trying to get my BMI up to 28.5.
    Whilst doing so, I’m eating healthier than I ever have and training very hard (CV & Strength). It’s at 27.3 ATM, so still some work to do.

    Just think how much lower your BMI would be without that massive chip on your shoulder.

    Just remember,
    In any survival situation, stuck out in a wilderness, fat people become fit and thin, and thin people die:)

    1. Article posted about how BMI is nonsense.
    2. Lots of people post their BMI.

    Plus an angry response within a couple of posts. Got to love STW.

    I think part of the idea behand the perfect body can be traced back to fear and persecution from the Nazis, anything away from the norm was simply irradicated. Now in a world of new found freedomes the biffers can fight back. All IMO, of course.
    BMI 20.

    all of you bmi 19 people you are on the very cusp of being underweight.

    surely you should consider eating some actual food and then not purging straight afterwards?

    BMI to Nazis in less than 40 posts. Awesome.

    I’ve got Hitler, Goebbels and Albert Speer down as having a decent BMI though. I wonder if they picked on poor old Goering.

    It’s pretty hard to lift a banana when you’re that skinny.

    The only accurate measurement is the pinch test anyway.

    Has it got anchovies on it?
