    Asked him a question about my weight. Im 150lb and 6"

    I consider myself pretty skinny but i have low fat so I have some muscle.


    The guy told me that Im at my best normal weight, and that 180lb WAS MAX for my height ( he was using BMI :mamoru: )


    Told me to eat less eggs, meats, etc. Also told me that 1500 calories should be enough for me ( i eat close to 3000) :rofl:

    Maybe that's his default bullshit answer to help the fat ass american be less fat and he wasn't really paying attention. :dunno:

    BMI is what is taught in schools so that is what he is going by. Anyone that cares to learn or think about it knows that body fat percentage is a better predictor of health risk and stuff.

    some physicians think that we only care about being 'healthy enough, more than the average person.' thats so gay, they settle for the norm.

    I think the problem was this:

    Maybe he couldn't tell that you were an active person? Thought you could lose some pounds but didn't bother to tell you?
