BMI is the dumbest thing ever invented UPDATE
So I have to take a physical for my new life insurance policy. As anyone who has gone through the process knows, you have to be under a 25 BMI to get the best rates. I need to lose about 5-6 lbs to get there.

I lift 4-5 days a week. I have a 32-33 waist. It is not going to be easy to find 6 lbs to lose.

Water weight can do it. Yes, BMI is completely stupid.

Just dehydrate yourself.

Pretend like it's a weigh-in for a fight

BMI was originally created for census population studies. To be used as it is today is dumb.

Maybe you should always lift 5 days a week and you wouldn’t be so fat.

Dehydrated yourself
Saran Wrap and sauna
Or you can get a colonic or enema

It is if you use it to judge individual fitness or insurability.

I have a 32-33 waist
Waist size is a better indicator and you won't have much fat if you're under 33".

??For the experts:
If he were to eat extreme low-carb for a week and then shed fluids like a wrestler making weight, are there other aspects of the physical that he may fail?

I’m the opposite. Alcohol dehydrates you so much that I’m a couple lbs less after a night of drinking.

Maybe we should start pushing that this is discrimination towards fit people??

I sent an email to our HR complaining about this last year, I even stated that they mean to tell me the fittest guy in the world (Mat Fraser) is considered overweight/obese? Told them they should test body fat instead. They acknowledged my complaint but didn’t do shite about it.

Just get your body into ketosis for a few days and you will be amazed at the pace that you will burn any fat.
