So being conscious of how many calories you take in throughout the day is a disorder now?  No wonder the country is full of fatties.

BMI is stupid because you found one exception?

No actually I found lots more (probably 5-10% of total who passed through our station), that's just my favorite one. Let's see, there was a girl who was so 'top heavy' they wanted to put her on a weight control diet, until they realized she was just really well endowed. She had a very difficult time doing pushups to the 'form' standard, let's put it that way. Military people will know what I'm talking about... the rest of you can just use your imaginations.


So BMI was accurate roughly 90% of the time?

That's a pretty damn good success rate for something that only takes your height and weight into account. Imagine being able to predict how good of a driver one is, using just two numbers, with 90% accuracy.

I really don't understand the hatred for BMI when you consider how well-predictive it is.

/everyone should just put down the booze and pick up a dumbbell
//incidentally, I'm 5'10" with a medium frame (had it measured) and am relatively thin by both BF% and BMI standards but I can still safely lose some weight...

You included your height and frame, but forgot to mention how deep into the autism spectrum you are.


If being honest and breaching the self delusions of anonymous Farkers makes someone autistic, then it's a miracle I can type or even emote beyond basic grunting.

Is that funny enough? I'm sorry I'm not more skilled at joking about autism. It is a knee-slapper of a disease though.

Ok, seriously?

According to TFA, if I have a glass of wine every night, but two on Saturday, I'm a binge drinking alcoholic? Get the fark outta here! That's ridiculous to the point of absurdity.

Dear people who made that shiat up, have you ever actually met an alcoholic--in or out of recovery? Jesus, the stupidity of "experts."

In other news, not eating would get you drunk much faster, causing you to (hopefully) drink less, so let the kids have their fun. They'll outgrow it (at least, most of them will).

darkjezter: 5 star chef of tv dinners: ReapTheChaos: I've been saying this for years, drinking is going to be the next smoking. They've already started the ball rolling by defining "binge drinking" as having only four beers, now if you skip lunch because you want to have a 6 pack that night you're not only a binge drinker, but you have an eating disorder. It's going to keep on until drinkers are looked at like those disgusting, filthy smokers.

If this happens then I am going to demand that my work start allowing me my 15 minutes beer break every hour.  You know, like smokers.  Will there also be designated drinking areas?

I hope they start making alcohol patches for people who are trying to "quit".  I could put one under my shirt and have a bit of a buzz going when I'm at work.


Or you could sneak a shot? Just throwing that out there. Put it in your coffee. Put it in your sprite. Be creative.

I guess I have an eating disorder? I thought I was just counting calories and being smart by eating salad on the days I know I'm going to drink.

I eat pretty much the same amount every day. Of course I drink every day, too, so I'm not sure what my point is.

You mean, a drinking problem.
