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!

Thanks for sharing this. It makes someone who falls just in the “obese” range feel a lot better.
That’s really nifty.
And I’m quite amused at the blog365 day of rest 🙂 It makes perfect sense, though.
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 🙂
Great slide show. Thanks for sharing that
