I don’t think I’m alone when I say that calculating your BMI can be a little nerve wracking. Am I thin enough? Why does it say I’m obese? I don’t feel obese… I think many of us are under the impression that the BMI test (body mass index test) is the gold standard to measure what a healthy weight is and how healthy we are in general. As more research is done, this is becoming less and less true. It looks like you can actually ditch the old BMI test and use something far more accurate.
