Hello, you are definitely not going the right way. The standard BMI of a healthy individual should lie between 18.5-25 which surely implies that you are overweight. Life expectancy of an individual depends on his/her BMI. An overweight person is more prone to diseases related to heart, blood pressure. Your BMI also affects your life insurance premium. An obese person has to pay more as premium than a normal person. Some insurance companies may even refuse to insure you because of your weight.

Therefore, take care and try to control your weight. Smile Regards

The body mass index is the only measurement to check the health status of a person. BMI between18.5 to 25 is considered to be ideal for a healthy person. If it is exceeding, a person is considered to be overweight and is at a greater risk to develop health disorder. People who are above this level have higher insurance costs. They have to pay high premiums. Being active, maintaining healthy lifestyle and diet helps you to reduce the weight.

Best of Luck !

Hi Iago,

Insurance companies use the body mass indicator to screen the fitness level of an individual. Generally it ranges from 18.5 to 25 for a normal healthy individual. Higher the index, higher is your premium. Some times the insurance companies even don't insure the highly obese people because they are at a higher risk to get attacked by diseases like blood pressure, heart problem etc. Be physically active and try to maintain a healthy lifestyle to check your weight.

Hope this information will be helpful to you.

Best of Luck:)

Hi Iago,

I agree with the other guys. You are definitely going on the wrong way. The body mass index is the direct indicator of your health. It must be in between 18.5 – 25. A high index shows that you are at risk of having diseases. A high BMI means high premium. I suggest you to put a check on your weight. Be active and consult a physical trainer to lose weight.

BMI is an outdated way to measure body characteristics. It was invented between 1830 and 1850 by the Belgian polymath Adolphe Quetelet during the course of developing "social physics", and makes no distinction between mass from fat (bad) and mass from muscle (good).

Some incredibly fit people have overweight BMIs such as

Tom Brady 6’4 225 lbs 27

Vin Diesel 6’2 200 lbs 26

Lebron James 6’8 240 lbs 26

Michael Jordan 6’6 216 lbs 25

Steve McNair 6’2 235 lbs 30

The Rock (Dwayne Johnson)

6’5 275 lbs 33

The fact that BMI is used to calculate anything is a poor sign for the health care community and only serves as an excuse to for insurance companies to charge more.

BMI in and of itself is a meaningless number. On average, the number means a lot because a high BMI indicates that the average person with a high BMI is overweight. However, on an individual level, it doesn't mean too much because it ignores body composition.

By the way, Steve McNair is no longer 235 pounds. He's under 100 pounds now.

I agree with fjakvmau to a point.

However, although it may be meaningless from a health standpoint, it is very meaningful when you apply for life, health or disability insurance.

Most insurance companies won't care about the number of miles you run every day or if the extra weight is muscle or fat.
