BMI Bullcrap!

I just had to put this out there as a rant. I was playing around a little on the BMI calculator on the CDC website, you can find it by clicking here. This is what it said for me.

Height: 6 feet, 0.5 inches
Weight: 177 pounds

Your BMI is 23.7, indicating your weight is in the Normal category for adults of your height.For your height, a normal weight range would be from 138 to 186 pounds.

Maintaining a healthy weight may reduce the risk of chronic diseases associated with overweight and obesity.


There is a 50 pound range for me!!!! If I got down to 138lbs I would be in the hospital. What a bunch of BULLCRAP! How did yours turn out?
