    But a 5 would be getting overweight for a 6 foot woman and a 3/4 would be borderline overweight in a 4 foot person. :/

    They're all the same height, so it doesn't make a difference.

    Not really though because proportionally they'd be the same. It's not like dress sizes. Both BMI and height to waist ratio look at the body proportionally.

    Taller people carry extra muscle mass for everyday life. That is one reason why bmi is flawed for taller women and men.

    It doesn't matter it's how tall when it's displayed like this, it's how the "fat" sits on the body. The only time height makes a difference is when discussing weight in KG. 60kg on someone 6 foot and someone 4foot would look different. This illustration could be someone 4 or 6 foot as the actual kg amount is not discussed.

    Back on topic :
    1&2 underweight
    3& 4 healthy weight
    5 - overweight
    6 & 7 - obese
    8 & 9 - morbidly obese

    I too am boarder line with #4

    4 I could go either way - healthy or overweight.
    Pretty much this.

    On the below scale, can you identify which women on the scale are of normal weight, overweight and obese?

    Attachment 74392

    This test has been used to show evidence that people don't notice obese anymore as they have become to accustomed to it.

    I'll give the answer later tonight
    Haven't read replies

    1-2 underweight
    3-4 normal weight
    5 + obese/ overweight

    That still doesn't make sense. The body types shown here clearly show people with average muscle build and a varying degree of fat.
