Someone made a comment to me that “according to my BMI, I am over weight.” And I looked at them, and was shocked they thought that! They looked good and strong, but not with excess fat. So, I thought commenting on BMI and some exercising may be good to put in here
The point? Just like the numbers on a scale shouldn’t define you, neither should the number on a BMI chart. This BMI concept is not 100% indicative of your health. Use it to get an idea, and be honest with yourself regarding your health.
If you really feel the need to know numbers, the best bets are waist to hip ratio, or to find your percent body fat (but that’s not always easy to get the equipment for.)
Or, don’t stress about numbers, and just take the steps towards healthier, natural living, regardless! Make sure you are trying to balance healthy nutrition, cardio, strength training, flexibility and stretching, a healthy attitude and stress management skills! These are all important components for a healthy lifestyle.
