BMI is over rated. At the age of 60 I'm 6 foot tall and 210 pounds which works 
out to a BMI of 28.4. I work in a warehouse and spend the whole day on my feet 
hauling around 80# bags of salt and 5 gallon bottles of water. I'm in better 
shape now that I was 30 years ago, even though my BMI is higher. 

My suggestion is to walk. Humans are built to walk, it's something we do well.
