No idea what an older male is but I'm pushing the higher end of 30 and am.
170cm (7ft-7) and weigh 62.86 kg (9st 9lb) I have also put on weight since running as I have built some muscle and am currently the heaviest I have ever been
Going by me your a bloody porker
but im happy I do not have the same practice nurse as you.
Also worth noting that BMI is seriously flawed as its a 19th century calculation which squares the hight by the weight of a population. BMI also ignores waist size, which is a clear indicator of obesity level. BMI makes no allowance for the relative proportions of bone, muscle and fat in the body. But bone is denser than muscle and twice as dense as fat, so a person with strong bones, good muscle tone and low fat will have a high BMI because of this it is not uncommon for world class athletes to find themselves classified as overweight or even obese according to BMI.
