30 - BMI is really only used for large scale studies. Body fat percentage using a BIA reader or doing a skin fold test are the best. There is no way to tell 100%, but just for instance a man who is 8% body fat and muscular can still be considered obese. All it takes into consideration is height and weight.
@119 actually its used in a clinical setting too, most people worth seeing will be able to tell when to and when not to apply certain methods and how to interpret the results. in a situation like this, to just show you are not overweight, its quite acceptable to use the BMI assuming the individual has no major factors altering the outcome of the equation.
no that's a good friend, as long as it's constructive. so many fatties in this world today, maybe they just need to be told they're actually fat. don't feel sorry for them. they ate. their problem. if its truely medical then I feel bad. otherwise, drop the cheeseburger lard ass, I see you. and its gross.
119- I seriously doubt OP is really muscular. I agree that those other tests are more effective; however, BMI is the easiest and quickest to calculate.
Well if OP is actually a fat one, it is a good friend for telling her the truth... What would be the point in lying? OP would just get comfortable in her non healthy/sexy fat body.. This said tho, if OP is not fat then her friend is really an idiot .. but I think the chair made it all clear..
The chair might not, but that double cheeseburger at mc d agrees with you
The only thing worse than fat people are fat people who don't think they're fat.
At least you're not famous for being the fattest person alive, some other retard has that title. Anyway the chair could have been old and on its way out and you just sped it up a bit, might have nought to do with weight.
