I'm curious about your thoughts on the BMI (Body Mass Index) system of determining a healthy weight.
My current BMI is 18.6 which is a healthy weight but a few months ago I was a few pounds lighter and my BMI was 17.7 which is in the unhealthy range. I wasn't starving myself and was eating a very good, mostly raw diet but this BMI seems very low. Should I be worried if my weight is falling into this range, do you think it will cause health problems. I think that I looked very healthy and I actually preferred the way my body appeared at this weight.
Do all of you who stick to a raw diet have low BMIs or are you in the healthy range?
Thank you for your thoughts.
