    Bodyweight is different from body fat. The BMI is a quick calculation which is used on a mass scale to predict peoples risk of weight related diseases. Unfortunatley, people obsess too much about their weight and as a result go onto extreme dieting which can often lead to weight loss from lean healthy muscle tissue.

    I always advise my clients to use there clothing as an indication, I train a few post menopausal ladies with hypothyroidism and they havent lost any weight (due to hormones etc) but they have lost dress sizes and inches from their waist.

    Getting back to the BMI, its an easy tool to use but you have to use common sense. If your classed as obese and dont exercise and eat takeaways its going to be accurate.

    The best way to get fit is to do something that challenges your body that you enjoy!

    I modify my health and fitness schedule like my footwear. I run, go enjoying water sports, go to the gym and even go to English Army Health in Roundhay Shop and Existing area area Shop in Horsforth.

    Having lived an active life, job, recreation, hobbies, sex, don't do much drinking, eating or now exercising exept for gardening.
    I just can't put weight on. I could do with at least a couple of stone adding, just to fill my wrinkles, any tips ? Yes I'm aged.

    Stone = 14 pounds (av weight) x 0.453 = 6.342 x 2 = 12.6 kg (I think) :icon_confused:

    It makes me howl that people pay good money for gym membership and then they never go. I ride my bike everywhere and I dont get out of breath, I have low blood pressure, low BMI and I'm perfectly fit and healthy. If people could stop using their cars to do everything then they would save thousands of pounds and get fit into the bargain - seems like a complete no brainer to me! Also I cant believe the amount of kids that get picked up from high school by their parents, its no wonder childhood obesity is at record levels. When I see the overweight parent sat waiting in their car with the engine running for their equally overweight children to come out of school I feel like screaming at them! I mean if you saw a parent beating a child then you could report them, but when you see a parent feeding their already overweight brats mcdonalds / kfc etc you cant say nothing! Surely that constitutes child abuse to raise your kiddy to be as fat as yourself?
