    I like this. It explains why I feel underweight. I felt my healthiest at 60kg.

    However, I do think it's good as a rough guide for being in the healthy range for those who might be unsure as to what their ideal weight is supposed to be.
    Yes you're right there will always be naturally thin people for whom the calculation won't work. It's just a guide they generally use for people wanting to lose weight. Based on BMI my range is very large. At the bottom end (which I have been) I'm am just way too thin and I don't like how I look.

    It's just a guide 😊. I didn't invent it so no need to apologise.

    That would not work at all for me. I'm 167 cm, I would look huge if I weighed 65kg. I weigh 56kg currently.

    As I said it was tool for people looking to lose weight.

    I didn't invent it. He's a renowned doctor but it goes to show there is no one size fits all when it comes to weight (hence the BMI range).

    You clearly feel happy with your weight despite not fitting with the weight you should be, and feel healthy. Yet another poster was shot down in flames bc she dared say that despite not fitting the weight she should be, she was healthy too. But she was deemed in the opposite direction as you.

    I read this with a touch of irony.

    My BMI is 18.6. I just crack being in the healthy range, and whilst I don't worry about my weight, my cut off weight is 60kg. I know that if I was to weigh 60kg I would be carrying too much weight for my body, and yet that only makes my BMI 20.3. I guess that's why the ranges are so large, because it does make allowances for different body shapes.

    Same for me, I'm 167cm and weigh 59ish, still have some smoodge on me, so I think I would be really overweight at 67kg.

    It's interesting though and probably works well for some heights and builds. No formula will be perfect for everyone.

    Well if you have got that from my posts then you are very wrong. I actually tried very hard to be careful with my wording because weight is a sensitive topic. I find this topic really interesting, I'm not setting out to make people feel bad about their weight or how they look/how they perceive they should look at all.

    And I actually am in the healthy weight range for my BMI. And yes, I'm happy with how I look. I work very hard at being fit and healthy, and whilst I am far from having a perfect body I am very comfortable with my body size and shape. But I'm not sure what that has to do with it?

    BigredV if any of my posts have caused offence, I am sorry. I was not setting out to single you out, just figure you were open to discussion because you put your photo up.
