    Potential new BMI figures?

    This was an interesting story in some of the papers today:

    At 5'8" maybe I'm a couple of pounds less overweight than I thought, lol. As Tesco would say, every little helps!

    Well I hope this isn't changing any time soon! I am only 5'3 and need to get my BMI down to 30 for fertility treatment. I'd rather not have another obstacle in my way... :/

    I know what you mean - I didn't get the impression from the article that the NHS would be adopting the new figures anytime soon though. xx

    Very true, but the NHS will insist on using it as a measure unfortunately, even though it's nonsense. xx

    Yep. Until the NHS stop using it (not likely), I have no choice but to pay attention to it.

    I couldn't find my own from this scale it didn't show one for 5ft 6 - is that because it's not changed? Would be just my luck! Not that it matters as you say BMI means nothing. I prefer body fat % (mainly cos it says I'm within the normal range!)

    How do you know your body fat, scales in Boots? Or like a pinch your belly test? Ha

    They should just do away with BMI altogether. Body fat and measurements should be the main things.
