Ministers urged to scrap BMI scale and rethink 'damaging' obesity strategy

MPs have urged Ministers to scrap the BMI scale and rethink the Government's obesity strategy in a bid to tackle eating disorders that have been made worse in lockdown.

As gyms and beauty salons prepare to open on Monday, a report by Parliament's Women and Equalities Committee found lockdown had had a "devastating" impact on those with eating disorders.

And they warned the Governments' current obesity strategy was "dangerous" for people suffering from negative body image, and could potentially trigger eating disorders in the people it is designed to help.
