What is your BMI?

Posted:
in General Discussion edited January 2014
Since the obesity epidemic has hit the US, I was wondering for the distribution of BMI is for mac users who peruse rumors boards.



The standard formula is 703 times your body weight in pounds divided by your height, in inches, squared.



BMI = 703*weight/(height)^2



My BMI is 19.2

    BMI = (weight/(height")^2)*703

    My BMI is 26,3



    The formula is simplier in meter.



    BMI = Mass in Kilogram divided by the heigh at square in meter.



    For me heigh : 1,85 meter

    weight : 90 kg .



    heigh * heigh = 3,4225



    90/3,4225 = 2,629656

    There is a reason that I am an artist and not a mathematician or physicist . . .



    and all rumore that Einstein was Dyslexic simply have to be false . . . there is no way that he dealt with dyslexia and did math like he did . . \

    That calculator is bullshit.



    I'm 5'10", so I'd have to weigh 150 to be in the middle of the normal weight range (BMI = 22). I don't think I've weighed 150 since I was about 16. I weigh "about" 175, so that makes me overweight. BMI = 25 (or so ).

    BMI = 22.5



    weight ~170

    height ~73



    all muscle



    When I was a competitive distance runner, my BMI was 17.8 (135, 73)

    When I was a freshman in highschool, my BMI was 16.75 (120, 71)



    Now that I think about it, I was disgustingly skinny.

    BMI= 22.25

    Weight= 140

    Height= 66.5 (If you were 66.5 inches, you'd take pride in that half-inch too!)

    BMI =28.4



    try this calculator:



    http://www.cdc.gov/nccdphp/dnpa/bmi/calc-bmi.htm



    Scarry thing is that I would have to weigh less than I did when I was in high school to be normal. In high school I swam up to 4 hours a day, and I don't think I looked that bad at 195 lbs with a 6'1" frame. Normal for me is starting at 187lbs and down. I'm currently at 215lbs

    6'-0" (1.8m)

    195 lbs. (???)



    26.4



    I stand to lose 10 pounds to be in my weight range (I have an average build), but I stand to lose about 20 poounds of fat really. BMI doesn't really tell the whole story: build type, percentage of body fat, etc.

    195 * ,45359 = 88,45



    6 feets equal : 1,83 (one feet : ,305 meter). Remember each centimeter is important
