    Obesity Crisis

    Main story on the Beeb's 6 o'clock news this evening:

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/7047244.stm#graphic


    Apparently 'scientists are calling for access to fattening foods to be restricted.' What, a return to rationing? How very 1940s."Sorry, no chips, you had some last week." No doubt a major health problem for the future (heart disease, diabetes etc) but the definition of 'obese' seems pretty severe from that graphic. Thoughts?

    BTW this is a place for lard-buckets to come clean - I'm 6 feet tall and around 12 and a half stone and I always thought I had quite a trim figure - certainly compared to many that I see and work with - but no, it seems I'm borderline overweight.

    Lol, 12 and a half stone at 6 foot isn't nearly overweight, whatever system says it is is being ridiculous.

    Haha. Apparently I'm on the light side of ok, not far from underweight. Must say my scales aren't the most reliable around, though.

    We did this in Science today, co-incidentally. I was on the line between OK and overweight on the chart majig, but 25 on BMI. Which is right in the centre of acceptable.
    Or something.

    5 "11" and 155-160 pounds.

    So I am pretty normal at the moment, however, I did use to be a fat ass 3-4 years ago.

    5ft 10, 13st. Probably pushing obese on the charts, really its a decentish figure with a beer gut and a year away from physical exercise (too many ankle and knee problems to run properly, put on about 2 stone, aiming to lose it soon though).

    Looking to get it down to about 11 1/2 - 12st. Used to be about 10, less when i ran alot, but although i stopped growing upwards, my figures become a bit more stocky. So rather than going back to a skinny runners build, now better suited to a bit of muscle.

    Of course, all depends on me actually putting the effort back in. Got FAR too lazy now

    According to that Im borderline obese. 6'1" and 100 kg. Ignores the fact that Im built like a brick ****house with massive thighs, fit and a fast sprinter etc. Using 1 chart for all people is stupid.

    I remember at Uni (long time ago) I had a terrible chest infection and went to the doctor. He told me to stop smoking (which was fair enough, as thats his job) and then brought out weight charts.

    Told me to get down to 11 stone (154 lbs, 70 kgs) . I told im exactly what I thought of that. Ilogical medical advice is terrible as it ruins the credibility of the doctor. Thank God the NHS is free as I wouldnt have paid the quack for such bad advice if it was private.
    If I only just posted the above post, please wait 5 mins before replying as there will be edits
