No I am saying that if I listened to those charts that I would be considered overweight. I am not overweight and I have a small frame that is toned from all of the hiking. If I listened to bmi, I
I might be depressed about that. On the matter of bmi, if you have muscle, it considers you overweight and it simply is not true. By
my height and build technically I am underweight.
Is using BMI accurate to say if someone needs to lose weight? No, not all the time. BMI can still be accurately measured, it’s just a number.
Just as your mass is just a number. It can be determined accurately. It’s a number. That number alone doesn’t give the full picture.
What you wrote above would mean the formulas for the calculators were incorrect.
If you say so. I am pretty sure that I said what some others have posted.
I’m within my normal BMI range (22), and I’ve been strength training to see results since weight isn’t really a problem for me. I just want to be more firm, and in my experience, you don’t get that from cardio alone. Women don’t bulk up naturally, so don’t be afraid to lift those heavy weights!
