11. Thats stupid....it says my bmi is 26, which is in the overweight category, but im 6 foot 4 i weigh 15 stones and have a very very low level of excess fat ie you cant pinch an inch - im just well built and pretty muscular (i play rugby so i have to be) - the whole things majorly flawed and a pretty stupid way to judge whether someones overweight

15. (Original post by TheWolf)
that sounds ok, im about 10 stones
its either that or 6.375, which sounds low!
coz 14 pounds = 1 stone rite?
well 14 pounds = 7 or 8 kilos rite?
and so 1 stone is either 7 or 8
and i weigh 51
so 51/8 = 6.375
or 51/7 = 7.2857

ok im done
