On average bones and muscles tend to weight the exact same as bones and muscle - but especially for muscles the amount of muscular mass we carry can vary significantly.

BMI doesnt really care about body composition, which is why it should not be used as the singular measure for individual health - but for population health the situation is different.

How do you suggest we get access to skeletons we can weigh, outside of comitting grave robbery?

Start small. Really really small. No, smaller than that.

Start with making a change thats so minuscule that not managing to complete it becomes harder than completing the change itself.

The easier you make it to start and maintain a habit, the easier it will be to get used to the change over time.
