Is there a different BMI calculation for men and woman?

Limitations of BMI: The calculation is the same. Men tend to be taller, which to some extent offsets the greater weight due to muscle. The bmi is not the be-all end-all of body fat measurements. It is a useful index for most people, and in large populations, but individual people can be muscular, stocky, and otherwise have low body fat but still a high bmi. ...Read more

Diet and exercise: The key to losing weight is not a temporary diet but permanent changes. Sugars and simple carbs from grains esp. cause weight gain. I like Dr. Furhman's diet: http://tinyurl.com/ktampgg Dr. Weil has useful info: http://tinyurl.com/m8avwzh - see his "discuss that" link in his article. Also see https://authoritynutrition.com/weight-loss/ for many useful articles. Exercise is also important. ...Read more

Are women more likely to be insulin resistant, more than men, at the same bmi?

Are women more likely to be insulin resistant, more than men, at the same bmi?

Insulin resistance: At the same age, women are more likely to have higher bmi than men. If the bmis were the same, the major factor to account for differences would be sex related hormones. Since women clearly become more Insulin resistant (ir) after menopause, it seems that Estrogens protect against Insulin resistance. With the more dramatic decline in hormone levels in women, it is likely they have more ir. ...Read more

I am male. Age 45. 6ft 2 inches and weigh 208 lbs. what should be my ideal goal weight? At current weight my BMI is 26.8.

BMI: The upper limit of the BMI range is 25 but 26.8 is not far above this. When BMI was determined were you fully clothed, wearing boots, etc. If you have bathroom scales at home you might want to compare your results with that at the doctor's office. At home you won't need to worry about clothing. ...Read more

I'm 31yo male with BMI 27.1. Walking for at least 30 mnts a day, vegetarian having small potions wt little fat n sweet; any suggestions how to loose?

Step it up: Maybe instead of walking you could jog, or bike, or dance every other day. You need to change up your routine since you aren't losing weight. Make sure you aren't drinking extra calories. Drink zero calorie drinks, water preferred. ...Read more

I am a 6ft 2in male with a weight of 60.3 kg that's a BMI of about 17.1 if i've done the sums right is this underweight?

Forget numbers: The "ideal weight" and "body mass index" are subscientific especially in athletes. Your best weight is what looks and feels right to you and makes you able to compete successfully with your peers in athletics. If you have only a little body fat, that's great -- a man's best with none. Your weight might be that of a 6'2" sprinter; a healthy 6'2" muscled-up linebacker might be almost 2x your weight. ...Read more

Vigorous exercise: Vigorous exercise and losing about 10% of your body weight will help. You may wish to start slowly, but need to work up to vigorous exercise at least 30 minutes a day for 5-6 days a week. Alcohol intake may help, but I do not recommend it. ...Read more
