This is my response to pablum that includes one size fits all calorie diets and things in “fitness” that include BMI as a “helping tool.” BMI is rubbish, when it comes down to the math. If you are serious about fitness and /or weight loss then NEVER subscribe to one size fits all calorie diets or BMI. Insurance companies use BMI, and when have they ever been your friends?
<1500 calories? Without even seeing the person(s). Why not throw out 1200 or 2000? This cute nonsense undermines the ability of fitness/health professionals, to get people healthy and fit. The defense for using a BMI calculator is the same for those citing a flat earth as a danger to those who might fall off the “precipice,” 500 years ago. Information only requires only one person to organize it to eliminate ignorance. @Hogan etc., drop BMI for body composition. Aspenvipinternational.>
