    Quick question... what kind of literature are guidelines considered to be? Tertiary? Secondary?

    BMI is a guideline currently used (though not the most reliable one). You can check any online BMI calculator.

    I call them secondary, though I think this could theoretically be debated.

    Just a question....what in the hell are you talking about? Who publishes the BMI guidelines? Is this primary literature?

    No idea. I just know that BMI calculators say what's overweight and obese and whatnot. I don't know who establishes the guidelines. Never researched that. Sorry about my lack of information and you don't need to be mad.

    I may have misunderstood your question. I thought you meant criteria for a person to be obese.
