Be sure to point out the GH and test use when you appeal.  I am sure that will help make your case that you are a healthy individual with many years left to live and a low insurance risk.   Grin

What the fuck!  I signed up for the extended life insurance at my company.  The insurance company required me to do a blood test and such.

I went to the lab, peed in a cup gave my blood etc...

I get a letter yesterday that I have been declined because I am obese. They  based this on a BMI measurement.

I am 6'4" and right now weigh 301.  At 280 I am lean with abs.  Before you all jump in and call bullshit.  I've been lifting for 20 years now and over the last couple years have been on test, GH and such.

What is funny is that even if I weighed 210 pounds the BMI considers it overweight.  How many fucking guys at 6'4" weigh 210 pounds?  This is bullshit.

Now I need to send an appeal letter and I'm going to attach a photo and say, listen fuckers, I'm not obese.  Proof in the photo.  What's funny is how the fuck can I be in the perfect range across all of the blood tests and be obese?  Do they not look at the fact that my glucose, BP, Cholesterol, everything is in perfect range?

Here is the BMI.  Such bullshit.  SO at 6'4" means I need to weigh under 250 to not be obese, or basically be a stick.

•Underweight = <18.5
•Normal weight = 18.5–24.9
•Overweight = 25–29.9
•Obesity = BMI of 30 or greater


You're gonna lose weight now.

It sucks no matter what.  They are using BM!.  I would have to stop eating, stop lifting, stop everything, and I would be lucky to get to 250 and I'd still be considered obese by those fucker.

How many pros are 6'4"?  Really that tall?  not many.  GUnther was 6'2" and he cpmpeted at over 300.  So right there he is about 30-40 pounds  more muscle than me at a shorter height.  So I am not pro size.

Look at the NFL.  Lots of tall tight ends who weigh up there at the same weight range.

I'm thinking you shorter guys 5'6"-5"10" can't seem to grasp how much easier it is to weigh in the high 200's without being fat or a "pro size"

The heart only recognizes weight. Even if you were 6% bodyfat, your organs would think your obese.

Cool.

I thought they threw those "Height & Weight" charts out back in the early 90's.
