Anon or delete please.
Could someone explain the body fat calculator thing please? I don't quite get it! Ha. I'm a size 8 and have a BMI of 18 which puts me as being underweight but the body fat calculator gives me 25% which is what they call 'acceptable'...? Suffering from an ED this is not exactly the best news I've ever heard! Haha... Any help?

It means you have little muscle mass and relatively higher body fat, which is why you weigh little overall but your bodyfat (as a percentage of your total weight) is not low.

Some article i read said height and waist ratios are more reliable than BMI

BMI is a load of crap.
Body fat percentages are a far far better indicator of health. 25% for a female is fine

BMI is only useful for people at the extreme end of obesity, otherwise it's essentially a load of rubbish - e.g you can be muscular and perfectly healthy yet be overweight according to the BMI index.
