Seeing Your BMI

A friend asked me to review his lab results. “Very boring” I told him – but you don’t want exciting lab results.

He did note at the top of his print out his BMI is 27.4. “That’s too high” I told him. “Your weight should be 155 pounds instead of 175.

“Do you know about BMI?” I asked him "you know, body mass index – the measure of weight taking account of your height. It should be between 19 and 25" .

“Not really” he said, but “I can see my BMI when I stand sideways.”
