BMI and Obesity in America
Your BMI is 18.2 What does it all mean? BMI / Weight Status Below 18.5 = Underweight 18.5 - 24.9=Normal 25.0 - 29.9=Overweight 30.0 and Above=Obese A BMI of less than 19 indicates you are underweight. A BMI between 20 and 24 is usually considered normal. A person with a BMI of 25 to 29 is considered overweight, and a person with a BMI of 30 or above is considered obese. Obesity is associated with an increased risk for heart disease, diabetes, and other life-threatening diseases. You can view the animated map outlining the spread of obesity in America here. Here's what they have to say about my current state of residence: Indiana by Kathleen Donnelly for MSN Health & Fitness Wonder how Gov. Mitch Daniels keeps so svelte? His daily workout is on INshape Indiana, the Web site of the state's fitness and nutrition campaign. There, Hoosiers can find plenty of information on good eating and exercise habits, and can register to track their own progress. How does the governor do it? He runs a fast four miles around the track each day, followed by weight training and sprints. via
