Do you know your BMI??

Have you been triggered by what you have been told?

Perhaps you’ve tried to get your BMI down for health reasons or because you feel it’s too much on the ‘larger’ size??

Quite often someone will tell me about an experience involving their BMI – maybe a medical check up or a visit to there doctor/GP. Just as we often put too much emphasis on the weight on the scales or the size of the clothes we put on every day, I honestly believe BMI is exactly the same.

After a recent experience involving my husband (and his BMI), I want to be brutally honest about the concept that such an arbitrary measurement can indicate anything other than giving you a number……

So let’s discuss BMI and why I particularly hate it!!!
