BMI is complete bullshit. Half the bodybuilders in the world are obese using those charts.

Ridiculous. Not that there aren't plenty of fatties, but BMI for measuring this end result.

We are already the #1 financially fucked state, why not strive for this too!

I'm going to eat 2 Big Macs at lunch. Screw that healthy lunch I brought to work today.

BMI is BS

I'm 6'1", 190 and less than 10% body fat and I'm considered "overweight"?

WTF?

So the fattest is Mississippi at 33.8% (about 1 in 3), and the least fat is Colorado at 19.1% (about 1 in 5). Yikes, we're fat.

Dammit, where did my Snickers bar go?

I think this is all about shaming us into breeding down to an average of 4'6" and 98 lbs to save fuel and energy.
