Hi everyone! Ok, how much trust do you guys put into the body-mass-index calculators? I put on loads of weight in my first year of Uni and the first summer hols, due to fully carbed hall foods and then a back injury that limited how much moving around I could do (due to pain, nothing serious, all gone now). I'm 6'2" (74"/188cm) and at the end of that Summer I weighed about 16 stone (224 pounds / 102kg). Over the next year I pretty much stayed constant, think I might have lost a bit but then I must have put it back on now that I look back at photos of the beginning of Summer last year. I changed my eating habits a bit and since then the weights gradually been dropping off (I haven't been working out loads or anything, just try to eat less crap and more fruit). I've just weighed myself for the first time in ages and I'm down to under 15 stone, about 14 stone 10 pounds (206 pounds / 93.6kg), which is great and I'm pretty pleased. Now I want to lose a bit more but to be honest my biggest aim was to get under 15 stone. I'd like to get to under 200 pounds now I think, about 90kg. Now the thing is, that's still classed as 'overweight' according to BMI calculators but the range that they suggest someone my height should be just sounds ridiculously skinny. I'm a broad guy, broad shoulders etc. I don't really work out anymore but I'm stronger than most guys my height. People say that BMI indexes don't depend on build but I can't see how if they are to be accurate that that is true! How can the suggested weights for my friend be the same as for me when although we are both the same height, I am significantly broader than him, I'm not talking fat, I'm talking bones, my shoulders are physically broader than his! Also, BMI is supposedly measured in kg/m^2, so its based on area. Surely a broader person has a bigger surface area?? What do you guys think about BMI calculators. Edit: I see that its not based on area but on height squared??
