BMI: keep it 22--26.: The BMI is a very useful as a guide to help determine if u r eating normally. Yes, there is enormous pressure for women to stay thin, and there is no better way than to starve.

Assuming general good health. One man is obese, the other is muscular and lean-5-7% bf%. No access to food or water in a desert, who would die 1st? Y?
Interesting question: The death for both would most likely be due to lack of water. If the obesity was due to water retention (a common cause) and if the body could use the accumulated water the obese person might survive longer. If it was fat rather than water the obese would live longer in regard to hunger since he could live on his fat. I believe that water would be the vital issue. It is purely theoretical. ...Read more
What's your take on bmis? I know people who are more lean/muscle and are in the obesity range whereas im skinnyfat & "healthy" despite minimal muscle
