"Extreme obesity the new normal"
Tuesday, April 16, 2013
I'm going to link two articles. www.theage.com.au/nation
Extreme obesity the new normal. The article is wrong and right. Extreme obesity is still pretty rare, but normal in most eyes is what is defined by BMI as overweight or on the border of normal and overweight. Someone in the middle of the normal range looks thin to most people.
People see me as thin. My BMI is normal. This site calculates your Body Mass Index and compares it to other Americans with a similar age and height. For my weight, age and height I'm at the 6th percentile meaning 94 percent of women my age and height are heavier than I. www.halls.md/body-mass-i
I don't know what to think about this. Comments, please.
