I’m increasingly annoyed at the fuss over “The Biggest Loser” Rachel Frederickson and her weight loss. Frederickson’s Body Mass Index of 17.5 is 1 point into the underweight range. On the other side of the scale there are 5 points in the “overweight” category before moving into “obese.” Beyond that there’s even a morbidly obese range.
If being on the left side of “Normal” were so unhealthy, or even common, there might be “lean” and then perhaps”emaciated” or “undernourished”. There is little cause for alarm being 1 point into overweight, so why criticize the skinny side? From the after pictures there is nothing unattractive about Frederickson. She even looks to have healthy muscle.
