BMI Part Two: BMI & Children
6/28/2012 2:32:18 PM
When we were children we never once thought about BMI. Chances are, you had probably never even heard of it. Sadly, this is not the case anymore. If you ask your children what BMI is, they may not be able to give you a precise definition, but they will know what you are talking about. They may even say something along the lines of, a high BMI is bad, you shouldn’t be fat, or fat is bad. 
BMI Part One: Uncovering the Truth About BMI
6/13/2012 2:27:39 PM

I was asked to write a post about BMI (Body Mass Index).  It is popping up everywhere and we are hearing more and more about it.  Students are getting sent home with their BMI on their report card, states are conducting statewide screening and surveillance using BMI, health care facilities use it, and it is prevalent in research.  That’s great, but what does it really mean?  What information can you really get from knowing someone’s BMI?  To find out let’s play a game!  Think of the following individuals- their body shape/size- maybe even google them- and try to guess their BMI:

George Clooney, Arnold Schwarzeneggar, Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp, President Obama, Michelle Obama, Beyonce Knowles, Kirstie Alley, Cameron Diaz, Tyra Banks, Serena Williams. Go ahead, don’t be bashful.  I’ve included the BMI categories below to help you make your guesses.
