How can I find the BMI or fat percentage of a regular feeder mouse?
I’m doing a science project and i need to know how to calculate the bmi or fat percentage of a mouse, apr 3 inches in length (not including the tail) and apr 20 grams. I need to have some number to compare two mice’s (<-grammar?) size in some height to weight or length to weight ratio.
I don’t think this is yet possible. Just make sure your mouse is at an ideal weight. Here is a good chart:
Emactiated: Ribs, lumbar vertebrae, pelvic bones and all bony prominences evident form a distance.
Very thin: Ribs, lumbar vertebrae and pelvic bones easily visible.
Thin: Ribs easily palpated and may be visible with no palpable fat.
Underweight: Ribs easily palpable, with minimal fat covering.
Ideal: Ribs palpable without excess fat covering.
Overweight: Ribs palpable with slight excess fat covering.
Heavy: Ribs palpable with difficulty, heavy fat cover
Obese: Ribs not palpable under heavy fat cover, or palpable only with significant pressure.
PS – Be careful when feeling a mouse’s ribs. One finger, used very lightly, is best. Putting to much pressure could break a rib.
At what point does your BMI become non critical and you can discharge yourself as an in-patient?
I am an in-patient at a unit. My BMI was very low but it is increasing. I would like to know the point at which I can discharge myself from the unit, as right now if I do so, I would be sectioned under the mental health act. I think it is around the 14 or 15 mark but would like to know the definative target.
I assume you are currently being held under section. This being the case BMI alone would not determine whether the section was removed. Your doctors would need to be convinced that you were no longer a risk to yourself. If you seemed likely to immediately revert to your previous dangerous eating habits, this would clearly not be the case.
What does it mean if your BMI decreases but your body weight increases?
Recently I’ve been eating a healthier diet with lots of fruits and veggies and exercising. I went to check my weight and noticed that while my BMI decreased, i also gained 5 pounds. WHY?
Thats not possible
if youre talking bmi, when your weight increases, your bmi also increases, unless you also got taller
if youre talking body fat percentage, then yes, its possible to gain weight, but body fat be lower.
How high does BMI have to be for the Wii Fit to call you obese?
My friend has a BMI between 38-39. The Wii Fit says she is overweight but not obese. According to various web pages, a bmi of 30 or avove is obese. Why is the Wii Fit different? And at what point does overweight turn to obese?
(Her mother is labelled “obese” and she seems to find this funny. She takes comfort in that she is “only overweight” but she is damaging her health as it is, amirite?)
She is obese, clinically and grossly obese, it makes no difference what some stupid games console says! Heart attack, clogged arteries, stroke etc.
will the atkins diet work for average bmi people?
im female, weigh 113 pounds and am 5’2, so i have a normal bmi. im planning to follow the first phase of atkins where u eat no more than 20 carbs for 2 weeks. i am also going to go on a 30 minute walk everyday (i hate high intensity cardio). so do you think ill lose at least 5 pounds or something around there? please i really need advice from doctors of people who have done atkins!
Absolutley, however you must follow the rules after the induction phase (one) or else you will gain all of that weight back.. 5 pounds alone will be water weight you may even lose more
