    Default QUIN IS A CREEPY OVERSIZED SWEATY PREDATOR!

    A handful of the members' BMI dun even reach 20! How young & healthy were everyone back then!?? No wonder we peaked in 2006.

    Which happened to be the year which I emerged and was super active.

    I declared 2006 as EoFF's official golden age.

    You just wanted to flex at how within normal weight you were.

    I mean, it's not, though? It's a calculation that broadly functions as a general estimate for adult populations of nations.

    Its purpose is to be a quick and dirty rule of thumb for broadly categorising whether a patient may be under-, normal, or over-weight. It functions to this purpose, and the limitations are known and considered by medical professionals when using it.

    I get that as a rule of thumb, but it's inaccurate as a measure of health. A person could be classified as "obese" but actually be fit and healthy, with high muscle mass. Perhaps doctors have these limitations in mind when using it, but regular people may not.

    It's not inaccurate as a general measure of health, though. The exceptional outliers are known and taken into account, and most people aren't beefcakes, pregnant, very old, or very young. Regular people who care about measuring their BMI and don't know the limitations that may apply for their specific circumstances are dumbbbbbb

    But I'm not a beefcake, very old, very young, or pregnant, and it miscategorizes me, too. I'm just a normal person person who is a normal size and shape. And if I was at the bottom end of the "normal weight" range, I would literally die of malnutrition.

    It's not exceptional outliers, though. It doesn't take into account body shape or where you hold your weight, which is a more accurate measure of whether you're in danger of heart disease etc. Nor does it account for racial differences, where having a higher or lower BMI than "normal" may be healthier.

    Quin is wrong and LALA is right. I look slim and attractive with my BMI. That is my conclusion.
