You don’t have to “exercise” if you hate exercise. You can mow the lawn, do home improvement projects, walk the dog, make pottery, or even play twister with your kids. Some people carry in their own groceries and weed their own gardens. Some people dance in the living room when no one else is at home. Do whatever works for you, but don’t pass up this great tool. (pg. 360)

Do You Know Your BMI?
BMI is a dependable indicator of total body fat, which is related to the risk of disease and death. The score is legitimate for men and women but it does have some limits. It may overestimate body fat in athletes and others who have a muscular build and it may underestimate body fat in older persons who have lost muscle mass.
