    I remember an ad for Special K cereal about pinching an inch.

    @BRI-NO-MITE!!

    “Pinch an inch” is a simplification of the caliper test, whereby your body fat is estimated using special calipers on different places of your body. It is a much better method of determining whether you’re overweight than the BMI.

    Even better than the caliper method (and a lot easier) is the use of body-fat measuring scales. They use Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (B.I.A.) to estimate body fat. These scales are now quite inexpensive.

    I use my Wii balance board to check my BMI. She’s been pretty content with me lately :-)

    He can cut that down to an inch and a half if he misses the navel.

    As it happens, the BMI was designed for population studies and was never intended to be used for individuals. Among other things, it ignores differences in a person’s frame. (A broad-shouldered man will weigh more than a slim man of the same height, but not be overweight.) And, of course, male/female differences aren’t considered.
