    The criteria and definition of overweight is absolutely ridiculous, I was about 75kg at the start of the year and was considered overweight at the age of 16 and being 170cm all. Couldn't beleive it. I don't take any notice of those sort of things though, as far as I'm concerned it's a personal thing whether you think you are overweight or not.

    BMI claims i'm overweight. But frankly i've got more stamina because i've been cycling a load than loads of people that are considering 'perfect weight'. Muscle weighs more than fat anyway so the whole thing is skewed.

    I'm just under 6 foot, and weigh about 78 kgs. My skinnies are a little too high. Basically, I still believe that food isn't the problem - it's whether or not you're doing quality exercise. If you've ddecided you can't be bothered doing that, then you've got to acknowledge that you're going to have to watch what you eat more vigorously.

    Your body fat % is a better indicator. But BMI is a good guide for most people. Obviously it isn't if you're athletic, but then you don't need to be looking at a BMI chart anyway.

    tbh you cant really go out around here (or anywhere else i have been in england recently for that matter) without seeing about 8 people who would be classed as obese, its pretty bad.

    I'm 6ft4in and weigh about 12 stone, which i believe is just about average....

    Actually, I don't wonder at all, and as a future physician, I hope they continue not to.

    Does that mean you think it will be good for business or not good for business? My gut feeling is that you'd have a lot of downtime because people wouldn't be able to afford a consultation with you; probably not a good thing for your personal coffers.

    Nah, there is no shortage of patients now, even with no nationalized healthcare system (except medicare/medicaid).

    Actually in quite a good mood, i'm not as obese as i thought i was, weighed myself earlier, lost 7lb on what i last weighed, so thats put me in a good mood. Also aided by the fact none of my normal jeans were dry, so pulled out the pair that i felt came closest to getting round my waist. Needed a belt. So huzzah for me!

    I'm 188cm (or 6ft2'' for all you people living in 1925) and I am between 77-79kg owing to the lack of proper cycling because of vacation and a knee injury so I'm considered ok. But anyone who has seen me will know that I'm skinny and always have been.
