looking below at the BMI Chart for Men and Women with Age, notice a
couple of things.
have suggested that this trend indicates a natural increase of weight
with age, but I would caution about the word natural. Notice
that at about the age of 55 there is a decrease; I believe that this
could be because those that are morbidly obese may be dying and
therefore pulling the average down. Even if we are not in the
category of morbid obesity now, it does not mean that if we do not
continue to try and lose weight that we will not end up in this
category. If your idea of the ideal weight is to be healthy,
do not forget that being healthy is more than living a long time. It
also means being able to play with the grandchildren and enjoy it as
you get older. It means shopping all day and not being tired.....
