When I went to my GYN for an annual visit this week, on his scale he had a photocopy of a height/weight chart that was different than I've seen before. Within the range of what I would have thought to be a healthy height/weight ratio there was a zone that was labelled something like "at risk." The chart said that "recent" studies (I don't know when the sheet was printed) have found significant increased health risks for those in this "at risk" range.
I can't recall exactly what the different categories were but I did notice that I wasn't too far
