Results from my annual show most things A-OK but one red flag -- a fasting blood sugar level of 108 mg/dl, which I read places me in pre-diabetes territory. This hit me like a sledgehammer because I simply cannot figure out how or why I would have this number considering my generally healthy, low-carb diet and decent weight. Some answers would be most welcome. Read on please. [more inside]
Suppose someone wanted to make a playlist of only music that was licensed by BMI for an event, to avoid paying ASCAP fees. Is there any short cut to avoid having to search for each individual song on the BMI web site? Has anyone already assembled and published some lists of BMI -only dance/workout/party type music?
I am a 19 year old teenager, I weight about 63 kg (138 lbs) and my height is about 176 cm. I want to gain weight because I look a bit skinny. Though according to my BMI, I'm average. I was wondering whether eating corn alone everyday would increase my weight and benefit me at the same time. I surely don't want to gain weight going to McDonald's.
A while ago, I saw this great BMI calculator that had accompanying picture of simulating body which, through a slider (?) could change from "fat" to "muscular". I found that I could reproduce fairly accurately the shape of my body (including the dreaded fat bulges...) with it and found it much more useful to see what I should target for. Unfortunately I can't find it again amongst the morass ... Surely AskMeFi sleuths can find it!
I have a BMI of a little over 26. What should I do? Should I accept myself as I am and keep eating healthy foods or should I keep trying to diet? I keep thinking about my weight and wish I could concentrate on more important things. I'm a female and am almost 40 years old. [more inside]

Is BMI Bogus? My employer is providing an incentive for the employees to be healthy. Assessment of health is based upon cholesterol, blood pressure, no nicotine usage, and BMI. I feel that blood pressure and cholesterol have a large genetic component and that BMI doesn’t reflect who is and who is not healthy. I need help making a thoughtful, respectful argument.

So I am about to join a gym. In most ways, I am a rational human being - but this membership comes with fitness evaluation and body composition test and if I have someone tell me that I am a big, fat, pudding of a man I am going to be posting an "ask metafilter" thread about how to hide a body. How do I handle this is a constructive manner? [more inside]
