    Because younger students likely have lower ones, I am interested in how I compare... Actually, wait ... just changed the title.

    20 years old, 5'3 and my BMI is 22.

    I'm working on losing weight though because I am not satisfied with my body, I used to have a BMI of 17.

    26 and 26.6 though it's not fat

    Before folk start on BMI, any medical professional who has ever weighed me (my BMI has been up to 29) has looked at me and recognised it's not concerning- doctors and nurses tend to be clever like that

    BMI doesn't mean **** when it comes to health. Anyone with a substantial amount of muscle will have a high BMI

    Yeah, that's exactly what I was talking about but folk use this as a reason to completely dismiss BMI. When actually it's really obvious from looking at someone if they are too fat or if it's because they have above average muscle mass and BMI does the job for the majority of people

    There's some evidence to suggest if you go over 30, no matter how you're much muscle you have to have negative effects on your health. Not many people are >30 and a) natural and b) not fat though

    Assuming you have some muscle, that BMI is near perfect for your height imo

    If you are over 30 and have muscle, chances are you have a bit of excess fat too which can be remedied. Unless you are extremely big boned. Are you still natural
