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]
