Fat-Bottomed Divers

Are you a bit flabby around the mid-section? Perhaps you’ve put on a few pounds since the active days of your youth
and now wonder if diving is a safe activity for you? When you dive, do you find that you need a bit moore weight on
your belt than you did just a few years ago? Does the divemaster suggest you try an anchor instead?

Here is an article for the fat diver. It discusses
health concerns like heart attack and diabetes, as well as a nice equation for determining your BMI or body-mass

  — Divide your weight in pounds by your height in inches squared.

  — Multiply the result of step 1 by 705

Simple, eh? Did you know that if you are really obese, your dive calculator might actually be inaccurate. the article
explains this, too. So, as you embark on your next diet, give this a read and start to drop those pounds.
