Maybe Congress should get involved and raise the obese ceiling? There. Problem solved!

Doesn't explain France, but maybe...so I can either eat baguettes or not drink alcohol?

6 ft 1 in and 180lbs ---> BMI = 23.7

Just barely in the "normal weight" category and yet I've worked out (mostly running/swimming) every single weekday morning for the past 13 months.

This makes me think that people just have certain sizes that they're suppose to be. I really don't think I could lower my BMI unless I starved myself or gave up alcohol.

I'm 27.4 but not anywhere near over-weight.

BMI is not an accurate representation of the person. It most cases it is, but in my case, definitely not.
