I need to know if I'm really overweight. I'm very active in strength class and we do plyometrics every other day and lift as well. I try to stay away from junk food and try to eat as healthy as possible.What should I do? I don't eat candy, sweets or pop.
If you want some help then post up your stats, Height, weight etc and someone or several someones can give you some suggestions. Just because your not totaly shredded does not mean you are "overweight". Also, like vortrit stated, you can be over your "ideal weight" and still be healthy. Some of the docs are still going by the old charts for height and weight and they can be deceiving.
heres an easy test to tell if your fat... with your right hand reach under your left breast now flick up does it jiggle? now flex your chest and repeat...if you answered yes to both of those then yes your a fat titty bitch.. ok still not convinced. during your day does anyone poke you in the back or belly and make you laugh? if you answered yes to that than you are a fat doughboy.. i just thought of a new thread... go to anything goes to find more tests
Yea overweight can mean a handful of different things. Someone can be 5"4 200 pounds of pure muscle and they would be considered severely overweight on a doctors normal "chart". It all depends man. There's bone structure, muscle mass, BMI, and all sorts of other factors that go into whether you are truly overweight or not. I think the best way to determine if you are overweight or not is your body fat percentage.
