    I realise there was a large thread & poll on this subject done a couple of years ago, but it only stated the main BMI categories (underweight, normal, overweight, obese), but I was curious on a slightly more detailed scale (NB. I could only have 16 poll options so had to go up in twos).

    So here's the calculator...

    http://www.nhs.uk/Tools/Pages/Health...alculator.aspx



    Below 18.5 - Underweight

    18.5 to 24.9 - Healthy weight

    25.0 to 29.9 - Overweight

    30 to 39.9 - Obese

    40 and above - Morbidly obese

    BMI is a pointless measure for someone like me.

    Mine is 28.61 (93kg, 5'11"), but I'm most certainly not unfit.

    I've got a little bit of a tummy, granted, but I'm certainly not fat.

    Yeah, understandably BMI has its variables. For example, weight can be muscle or fat. And height and age play a big part in it too. Just out of general curiosity & slightly more detailed than the previous thread

    Highly deceptive, I have no fat on my body whatsoever, the blessings of being 6"4' :smug:

    19.24. I'm 6'3" and 150 pounds, so while I have almost no fat, I have pretty much no muscle either. Oh well. :sigh:

    I'm 29 and around 14% Body Fat.

    Totally pointless 19th century test.

    Forget about your BMI.

    24.17. I'd say that's pretty accurate for me, judging by appearance :dontknow:

    This, mine is 26 with 15% body fat, BMI is completely irrelevant, body fat is what matters

    Why are you unhappy? Sounds like a good BMI to me
