Remember: The determinations of someone's overall weight is complicated. While part of the component is how much you are taking in caloric wise, the other part is based on how active you are physical but also how active you are metabolically. Some people have slower metabolisms than others, which means they have to be very careful about their intake and activity levels. ...Read more

Normal range: From your listed points, the child was at the 21% for weight at birth and 36% at 3y. His length was at the 90% (hard to get good measures then) at birth & is 72% at 3 years. These are well within the normal range for growth in kids. He is a bit leaner & taller than his age equivalent peers. ...Read more

Bmi doesn't account for waist size and muscle tone. Why is it still used? At 5-9 170, i'd still be considered overweight...Ridiculous.

You're right: It is widely acknowledged that bmi doesn't tell the whole story - it's just a guide. It's particulary wrong in muscular, healthy people who have a high bmi but are not fat. Ignore it. ...Read more

I'm very active and play sports 6 days a week for 2 hrs and I am still overweight based on my BMI why can't i lose weight? Dieting is hard when ur kid

Balanced diet: It is great that you are exercising. If your physician has diagnosed you as being overweight, then I would suggest taking a few steps to improve your diet. Avoid all sugary drinks, candy, and fried foods. Have at least five servings of fresh fruits and vegetables each day. Drastic diets don't help and they often result in a rebound effect and weight gain. ...Read more
