      When I was that age I was about 13 stone at just under 6'.

      Although that was when I was on a shed-load of steroids, I've lost weight since.

      7.5 stone is very slightly underweight. It is still well within the 'healthy' bracket. 15 stone, on the other hand, is not. And yes there is an option for 'less than 11 stone', which you will observe has by far the most votes. The poll is aimed far too much at the heavy-very heavy end of the spectrum.
      http://www.weightlossresources.co.uk...ight/chart.htm

      found this healthy weight chart. according to this 7.5 stone would only be in the normal range (just) if you are 5ft1 or under, and above it does say that when applied to men, you would still look slim at the top end of the healthy weight range. so depending on the guys height its VERY likely to be classed as underweight, perhaps severely. Although having said that 15st is very likely to be overweight unless you're 6ft5 or over. I do think it is subjective though because someone with a high muscle mass can be classed as overweight and thus 'unhealthy' despite being the opposite!

      also more_adventurous, according to this chart 5ft 3 and 8 stone is just on the dividing line between underweight and healthy, so not really comfortably in the healthy weight range.

      Of course this is just a random healthy weight chart I found via google but it gives quite a good indication (although dont like it for telling me im slightly overweight, lol)

      I'm 5'5, and thus only very slightly underweight. Regardless, though, the poll starts far too high, as you can see from the number of votes for the first option.

      Would never have imagined there would be so many guys under 11st, I would have thought nearly everyone would be in the 11-15st range, but there you go! the poll has informed me anew :p:

      and I assume you mean underweight lol!

      Your chart considers any BMI under 20 to be underweight. Generally, only BMIs under 18.5 are considered to be underweight. That is the guideline used by the World Health Organisation, too.

      In the UK, we consider <20 to be sub-optimal.

      Care to be taken using terms like underweight and normal when using BMIs.

      By "we" do you mean "I"?

      The UK government and the BBC Health site both consider a BMI of 18.5-25 to be "optimal."

      I don't give a toss what the HNS have got wrong, it's not run medically.
