In my opinion I think BMI is wrong for most people. I’m 5’7 190ish right now and by BMI’s standards I should weigh in at 155lbs. That is ridiculous! Any opinions or experiences with BMI?

I’ve lost 15lbs so far and all I’ve done is exercise and eat regular smaller portions with no real emphasis on healthier foods, however, I did cut out fast food and all soda. Strictly water and juices seem to have really made a difference. Also I use portion control when eating.

When I started I was 205lbs. and I’m 5’7, obese by BMI’s standards!! Although it didn’t show, I sure feel better! Heck if I can do it, You can do it!!! My goal now is 20lbs to lose.
