Show Notes

BMI – this is a great example of things we’re taught that are health indicators or good for us that are actually BS! 

It is a great tool for population based studies and understanding epidemiology, but it’s not useful for individual based assessments and ‘fat shaming’ patients! BMI was never intended to be used as an individual health tool indicating the healthy weight of an individual patient. 

BMI doesn’t account for bone density, muscle mass, fluid volume, fat mass, or any of the many factors that make up the composition of the human body! 

In this episode Dr Andrea & Dr Ashleigh dive into how antiquated BMI testing is and what are better alternatives!
