Why I have problems with the “BMI”

That’s the Body Mass Index.

My problem?

I’m six feet tall.

According to BMI, I should weigh somewhere between 137 and 184 to be considered healthy.

137? Excuse me! I didn’t know that being considered “healthy” would also mean I’d have to look like I was a famine victim. Those who remember seeing me at 145 in 1988 can tell you that it wasn’t a pretty sight.

The issue with BMI is that it doesn’t take body type into account. It simply goes on weight and height.

What a crock.
