    BMI is a totally useless measurement since muscle weighs more than fat. Anyway the last time I did it (a few years ago) I was classed as 'underweight' haha Can't remember my height/weight now.

    24. But 6'5 and go to the gym 6 times a week, so guessing it means nothing.

    Having an IBS (Crohns) sucks, do I get a bit of an exception because I had 3/4's of my large bowel removed, that would surely put me over the 18 mark!

    I'm surprised how many guys have lower BMI than me, considering I have twigs for arms
    Haha, me too. I felt quite odd being such a twig but seems im not the only one.

    Yeah, I would've done a poll about body fat percentage but it would have required everyone getting out their tape measures or going for a caliper test, so for the sake of TSR it's bmi
    I can't wait until my BMI is over 30 and I'm classed as obese due to lean gains personally :awesome:

    0. I'm a fairy. We don't weigh anything. But that fat ass Tinkerbell will soon if she doesn't stop eating pixie chips.

    On a more serious note, BMI is not an accurate measurement of health. I'm 19.85 but I am the laziest person ever, yet there are people who have muscle but classed as overweight? There's no logic. I suggest a new way to measure healthiness: as long as you are not having a heart attack every five minutes and you don't lose your breath and collapse after climbing two steps, you are healthy.
