You know, the double eye-patch band thing (best I can come up with). An eye-pad? Any idea where I might be able to buy one outside of an airport? (Obviously this will depend on where you live but it should be similar anywhere)

Standard is weight in kg divided by height in meter squared. So it's BMI = kg/m^2

BMI > 30 is obese
BMI = 25-30 is overweight
BMI = 19-25 is normal
BMI < 19 is underweight

Variations apply depending on dry weights, relative muscle mass, adult or pediatric age group, etc.

Emphasis strong on those variations -- BMI is, I'll say it, a lousy rule of thumb for individuals. It's more useful for statistics with large populations.

A moderately muscled male will show up as "overweight" even though they're in excellent physical condition with low body fat ratio. Worry more about your body fat ratio and WHERE the fat is.

Belly fat is a particular alarm. It is not only toxic but you may also have a lot of hidden fat draped on your internal organs doing damage.

Age: 32 In rich countries where more accurate methods of indices apply, BMI isn't really used anymore. But in poorer countries, well, you use what you can. It may be good enough for adults, but in pediatrics BMI isn't accurate at all in itself. You can look at the standardized WHO pediatric height and weight growth charts online. __________________

It's depressing that I find reading light novels in Korean to be easier than Japanese. Seems like my not reading Japanese literature has caught up to me.

Thank you, I was thinking I was never going to get an answer.

As for reading, do you not at least know three languages?
I only know two languages, Korean and English, but even then I have lot of trouble reading in Korean and I am terrible at typing and writing in Korean. If you are able to still read them at high proficiency, I would say that is very impressive.

I think because each letter is so distinct and different each other, in both looks and sounds, it makes sense and more clearly defined.

Compare to other languages I suppose. I do think the way it work is very logical.

 2013-06-27, 15:22 Link #7036 barcode120x RN     Join Date: Apr 2010 Location: Ontario, CA Age: 27 Now that I'm on summer break for about another 8 weeks before school kicks back, I've started working out. I've have always been doing cardio for awhile (running 3-4 times a week) but I figured if I wanna lose some of that nasty weight (fat rather) I gained from stress, I decided to pick up weights. My question is should I be taking protein supplements (I have a protein chocolate powder) for working out? Or would a decently sized protein meal suffice for my workouts? I'm nowhere near doing hardcore lifts, but enough to wear me out. I guess I'm trying to figure it if it's necessary to take a protein supplement to compliment working out. __________________ My twitch channel "Avoiding the truth but trying not to lie, and it's just terrible."

I'm going to suggest you spend a few bucks and talk to a personal trainer who has nutrition experience/certification. If you're trying to add muscle, more protein is good. Do you need to spend all that money on protein powder? I'd wait until you've gotten your body fat ratio to where you want it. Let the muscle growth "eat" the fat, so to speak.
