BMI and Why You Shouldn’t Worry About It

You might not be a numbers person and you might have failed college math. Well, don’t stress yourself out any more by dealing with this number, BMI. I know… those are three letters but they represent a number that means… nothing to you! Your body mass index is supposed to give you an idea of what physical condition you are in, but it might not always be the most accurate for every individual. In this video, Hungry tells you why other numbers, including measurements and body fat percentage, will provide you with a much better idea about your overall health. 

THIS guy's BMI says he's obese...there's something wrong with that

Because negative reinforcement, like being told you’re obese based on your height and weight when you’re actually not, does not help someone stay hungry and fit!

    I agree that measurements and body fat percentage are the key indicators, but it has been nice to see my BMI go from 30.3 to 23.6 this year. And special thanks to Fit’s parents for all their helpful advice and encouragement these past few months!

      David,

      That’s amazing! Keep up the amazing work and if you’re ever in need of encouragement, we hope that we or someone else can provide some for you. If tracking your progress by BMI has been working for you… stick to it! It’s inspiring!
