    The university said they couldn't write scrips for me anymore because it's been 3 months since I graduated so I had to go to a local doctor. The local doctor had to have a consult with me on top of my medical records being faxed to him (schedule 2 drug).

    He put my height and weight into the computer and said something along the lines of "one thing we're worried about with people nearing the obesity point is potential heart failure or other similar complications" :rofl:

    I almost asked him if he was serious but I didn't feel like trying to find another doctor if my attitude make him say no.

    damn you guys just have shitty doctors all around. I wanted accutane when I was a kid and they basically threw the shit at me. I told my doc last year that I wanted to be 240lbs and he said "as long as it's above the rib cage, go for it".

    BMI values are dictated by life insurance.


    They can charge a higher rate if they can show a weight problem.

    Forget that most of the values are unattainable for anyone with any musculature.

    The only true test is going to be bf% through bioimpedence.

    After watching Sicko and that one fat girl getting denied because of her BMI, made me kind of worried about them just seeing a number and denying you a policy
