Killing the Myths About Obesity and BMI That Won’t Die

Armen Weight Loss Tips 9 Comments

There’s an annoying recurring theme found in experts that I’ve noticed these days.

I think perhaps the propensity to this evil could be found in any expert in any age, but that’s irrelevant.

It exists now, and it’s annoying.

What I’m referring to is the unwillingness of ‘experts’ to amend their opinions and adapt quickly to changing landscapes.

I speak as one who’s married to an expert, and it’s been absolutely fascinating to see the change and the continued development of her ideas as she studies, learns, and experiments for herself.

One of these changes has been to kick against the prevailing mainstream nutrition advice in light of new studies and information.

Recently, I had a bit of fun with the whole idea of the nonsense which surrounds obesity and the Body Mass Index.

I turned this fun into a little cartoon flick, and did a voiceover to make it as a video.

I’ve never done anything like this before, but I thought you, as a reader of Mel’s site, would benefit from a humorous (but accurate) look at some of the myths about obesity and how it relates to BMI.

I hope you enjoy the very non-American accent ๐Ÿ™‚

    Lol, Armen…I giggled through most of this video. Very clever, and so true. I’ve long disliked the BMI chart for the very reasons you’ve stated. When I was in university, I went to the gym every day and ate very healthy, and according to the BMI chart, I was still in the “overweight” range. But, I looked great, felt great, and had no shortage of admirers! Every body is different, and I don’t think anyone can say that every woman of 5 foot 4 should, ideally, weigh 125 pounds. There are just too many variables.

      Glad you liked it, Suzannah.

      Mel thinks such experiments add weight to her belief that I am, in fact, mad. ๐Ÿ™‚

      I used to work with a guy and his wife was told she was overweight by a Dietitian. In reality, she was solid muscle. She had a serious training regimen (think obsessive) and didn’t have the understanding to refute the daft health professional.

    Looks good, sounds good as well…

    I changed doctors, a woman and she decided I needed to go down a few kilos (if I could)…well I did and I was pleased.

    BUT

    She left the clinic and I got a new doctor, another woman and she got in a tizz because as far as she was concerned too much weight down and therefore I must be iller than I already am. The blood tests showed up a problem but for some reason they have decided that is my “rate” (can’t remember the facts) I have now put back on 2kg and she is happy.
