**Weight Loss Tip:**
Switch to ground turkey in place of ground hamburger when losing weight. Ground turkey can be seasoned to taste and substituted for hamburger in tacos, patties, casseroles, meatballs, chili and many more dishes. Ground turkey has less fat, great taste and is a perfect substitution for ground hamburger.

http://www.EatStopEat.com – fasting for weight loss. Brad Pilon answers a question on BMI (Body Mass Index) and how to calculate your BMI using the Body Mass Index Equation.

Brad talks about why your waist to height ratio is better than your BMI as an easy way to determine when and if you need to lose weight.

A healthy BMI still may not be a good indicator of body fat.

Im 12 with a BMI of 21.9 , Waist of 29 inches and a height of 67 inches

if you dudes would like to get ripped quick without spending a one another

minute in the gym, then you have to look at this video tutorial SIXPP.COM

Farmers grow on the land. I suppose farmers grow farmers, rather than using

sex to reproduce.

Brad does a good job of explaining what BMI is. Unfortunately it’s not a

great parameter, especially for very muscular fit guys. Paying attention to

percent body fat is probably more useful. And of course at

FatBlastingworkouts exercise is an important part of the equation

hey guys! I I was just wondering if this is an accurate measurement when it

comes to muscles? thanks!

That was a great alternative to the BMI method.

BMI is garbage, not necessarily because it doesn’t take into account

muscular athletes but because the ranges are so WIDE. im 6’0 tall and

according the BMI parameters I can be between 137lbs and 180lbs to still be

at a “normal weight”. How are you going to give someone over 40 pounds of

leeway? That difference is enormous!

the BMI chart would consider you at “normal weight” but modern society

would consider you underweight

haha! bmi is fucking bullshit, it doesn’t count your bones and shit like

that

Yeah the BMI is a very obsolete formula, devised 180 years ago in post

Napoleonic Europe, when most of the populace was probably malnourished by

modern standards. The BMI says an ideal weight for 6 feet is 136.4lbs –

184.3 lbs!!!… or 160 POUNDS being Ideal.

Who’s 160 lbs at 6 foot tall?

Pierce Brosnan 1994, 6’1 164 lbs

Harrison Ford 1977, 6’1 165 lbs (I know hard to believe but I checked it)

Rex Harrison 1949, 6’1 160lbs

Kevin Costner 1993, 6’1 170 lbs

None of these men were what I would describe as Robust, nor all that

muscular! The minute they would have hit the gym, and started heavy

lifting, you can expect they could have packed on 10 or 20 more lbs or more.

my bmi is 16.2… bmi is BS it says im under weight when im healthy… it

says a person who is muscular is ” obese” because it only measures weight

and hight

dat shit isnt very accurate

Shit. I was looking for equations for BMI not health tips!!!

See, mine would be 16.5…. no. Doing the second calculation I’m a healthy

weight, body types play a part in this as well.

Are you 100% for sure that the BMI is 100% correct? At 6’1, I used to be

12% body fat at 181 pounds. According to the measurement of the BMI,

someone at 6’1 and weighs 160 pounds is around 12% body fat. Someone 6’1 at

181 pounds would be in the borderline healthy range. Someone at 6’1 at 190

lbs would be marginally overweight.. So, therefore, basically what is said

is that I would be at a healthy body fat percentage at 165 pounds?

That white man is fine! He looks like Michael Fassbender ;-)

BMI is bullshit. You should really be finding your body fat percentage. BMI

doesn’t account for how much of your weight is muscle, fat, or water. It

only accounts for weight which is inaccurate.

What did he say @ 3:41? smh

Nice. Like the drawing too by the way @2:10. lol

No you’re not even close to being overweight even if you do make it to 180

lbs. These math equations and charts are a bunch of BULLSHIT. I’m 6’0′.5

tall (72.5 inches) w/ large frame & weigh 140 lbs. The bmi says that 138 is

normal but my doctor wants me to weigh 195-224 lbs. How the FUCK is 138

normal for a person who’s 6ft/6ft+. This is FUCKING BULLSHIT here even the

waist chart w/ the self animation it doesn’t mean much because not

everyone’s shoulders are the same.

I’m 13 and 8 months. Almost 5’0. My BMI is 15.6.. Is this dangerously

underweight (everyone says I’m bony). How much weight should I gain?

Body fat percentage is the only entirely accurate way to measure obesity.

Now this is bullshit. I’m 5’7 214 pounds but says in obese. It’s mostly all

muscle. Muscle isn’t fat

Hi I’m Jenn and I’m 13 years old and I’m 100 pounds/ 50 kilos and my height

is 5″5

10 yrs, 111.5 lbs, 4’7″.

Did you actually measure your waist because I am skinny…too skinny…and

wear a size 31 jeans but my waist measurement is actually more than that

when using a tape measure. Its closer to 34.

Im apparently just underweight but im fat af hah

14 years old 5″8, 128 pounds, my bodyfat percent is 11.50 (even though that

probably doesnt matter) but anyways am i healthy?

Thank you, great video !

U did the math prior to doing the video Bruh… Why you acting like you

just did all the math in ur head … Ha

I think it’s actually done by dividing your weight by your height^2, then

multiplying the quotient by 703

i was doing alright at the start where i got a bmi of 23.7 then i checked

the curcumfrence of my waist and it was 4 inches more than the half of my

height…… so close….. just a few more weeks of gym and i will be

there….

If I dropped down to the weight he BMI calculator says, Id be a crack head.

well I did this method

height = feet +inches

40×0.305+0+0.025

———– + 0

then 40

plzzzz could u explain this method in detail

This is good advice. BMI doesn’t account for variations in bone density and

muscle mass. The height/waist thing makes much more sense.
