Those government BMI stats are very skewed.

178cm and 82kg.
I'm a tad overweight, but that will be corrected in the near future as I finally convinced my parental unit to pay for a gym (huzzah!)

They don't take into account body composition. Anyone who has built up a decent amount of muscle will have a higher BMI, even if they have only a healthy amount of fat. Nonetheless, even with a very slender frame, someone who is only 100 lbs and 5'5" probably does need to gain a bit of weight. But don't eat more junk food, increase the amount of healthy food, and do some strength training exercises to build up muscle rather than just put on fat.

I'm 6'2", and between 150 and 160, depending what I've eaten in the past few weeks.

That would put your http://nhlbisupport.com/bmi/bmicalc.htm at 16,4. You should weight at least 113 lbs for a "healthy" minimum BMI of 18.5.
Cool link! It says my weight is normal for my height. I just wish you had a calculator that could convert it all to muscle.

Me too! 19.5 Old age and beer to the rescue again! If I hadn't shrunk an inch and drank so much, I would have been under 18. :biggrin:

I don't think I've ever been 113 in my entire life so dunno if that's going to happen anytime soon. In all honesty I'm just never that hungry is what it comes down to and what I do eat is healthy (and bike a lot each day) so I'm not going to worry excessively over it.
Though my friends are known to gain parental airs while in the dining hall and trying to get me to eat. ("I don't care if the server gave you two thirds of a plate of mashed potatoes, you're eating them all!")

That would be my dream dessert, as long as there's gravy or butter. :tongue2:

My dessert is more along the lines of chocolate pie, and I know how to make a good one that is remarkably low in calories too. Its more like a mousse than anything else. It also only takes 15 minutes to make (and several hours to cool).

5' 8" , 131 lbs ..

man it's so hard for a normal Indian male to go above six feet, my ultimate height goal is around 6' 2", just recently I got a copy of a more than a thousand years old book on yoga by the ancient scholar Patanjali, it's amazing, yoga has particular asanas for everything, so i have started the ones that help higher growth..

Recipe, please. Maybe I can pay Moonbear to make me one. I don't cook anything that doesn't involve a can opener or a microwave.

I'd like someone to do the following:

Find out the weight of the last ten members to have posted in each forum here. Add them together, and tell us whether engineers are fatter than biologists...

Danger, at your earliest convenience....

I think I'll raise the average for the biology. I am 5'8" and 180 lbs. BMI tells me I am overweight. As moonbear, the index do not take into account my muscle mass and physiology. I am a tank. :biggrin:

Fan of one of the California teams, I assume? Most of them are lottery fodder this season, so it'd make sense. I'm hoping for my Knicks to tab Gerald Green or Chris Taft.
Lakers fan since I was born at the beginning of the showtime era just outside of LA. I'm praying for Raymond Felton myself, but Jarrett Jack would be a great consolation prize. This is the first year in a long time I've even cared about the draft.

But iansmith isn't a Yank. :confused:

So, iansmith is a muscle-bound biologist...why have I not seen a photo in the member photo thread yet? :grumpy: :biggrin:

I know he's a Bluenoser; that's why I wasn't sure if he was bragging or confessing. 'Tank' is short for 'piss-tank', meaning an alcoholic. :biggrin:
The 'note to Yanks' thing was just to let you know that there was a joke to be had.

I'm 170-171cm and 65-70kg.

But there's something I don't get... Most of you use SI units daily and yet you tell your height and weight in feets and punds? Why?! :confused:

Because that's what the rest of the country uses, so no point doing the conversion. Usually the only time I need to tell anyone my height and weight, it's to go on my drivers' license or at the doctor's office.
