This BMI calculator (pre-version 1) and any other topics in the vague folder means this BMI subject is not my expertise,
just what I have found from Internet, another words while there is unlikely to be a mistake however the weight limits might not be set correctly to what professional health people use.
How this calculator come about. When I stopped growing I always thought of my height in foot-inches, since then New Zealand has gone metric, so guess what? There are not many calculators on Internet that works out the BMI from Foot-Inches & Kilograms.

Myself, I get fat on the smell of a dirty dish cloth, Unfortunately some people are like that. New Zealand had a prime minister, that went in for a operation between the time he became a member of parliament and when he became a prime minister so he could shed off a lot of weight. The good news is I will never be so bad I will need a operation.

My Doctor (GP) is always doing his rant, I am not sure why none of my other doctors made such a big issue from so little. I think, Would it not be better to be slightly overweight on healthy food as opposed to been over weight from junk food and the like. I do not smoke, drink or take drugs and do plenty of exercise (and I should be exercising instead of writing this), and the most common food (and maybe only food 99% of the time) I go for at a fast food outlet is a salad. At one sage I was eating a lot of fruit my doctor told me I had the lowest blood pressure for my age group (but I was still overweight).

It has got so bad I got sick of going to my GP because he is always doing his overweight rant.

Question one:
I really think from what the news tells me, that the world is going fat! So why is there not any community dietitians in your (our) neighborhood shopping centers. You pop in to the dietitians and pay for their services, just like you pop in and get a hair cut to the hairdresser. You give them your daily meal plan, they weigh you and try and point you in the right direction if you are lost.

The Answer: If nobody goes a hoot about a more healthy population, nobody will take this idea any further.

Question two:
Whenever you buy food from the supermarket there is always a "Nutrition Information" table on the packaging So why not have a “Nutrition Information” table on the wall at the lunch bar. It does not have to be to the same amount as the factory made food, it could just give a table of contents of the ingredients used and the percentage amount

Answer to the lot: Does anybody give a hoot if everyone gets diabetes from been overweight!
