The Insanity of BMI

Kate Hard­ing cre­at­ed this very cool slide show to show just how absurd it is to rely on body mass index to deter­mine whether or not peo­ple are at a healthy weight.

BTW—I did not “miss” blog­ging yes­ter­day. Feb­ru­ary 29 was the only “day of rest” for Blog365, so I took it :-) It felt odd, though!

Cyn is Katie's mom, Esther's Mémé, and a Support Engineer. She lives in the Atlanta area with her life partner, Rick, and their critters. She knits, does counted-thread needlework, reads, makes music, plays TTRPGs, and spends too much time online.

  1. That’s real­ly nifty. 

    And I’m quite amused at the blog365 day of rest :) It makes per­fect sense, though.

  2. I am in the flickr col­lec­tion for BMI, but she did not use me in the Slideshow. I was intro­duced to size accep­tance a while ago, and it has real­ly changed how I look at health and weight :)
