Yea I'm not exactly saying BMI is useless, I just think it's quite a brave thing to use on its own outside of a quick estimate. Should be able to counter a premium on health insurance by providing more info for example. Perhaps initially saying "that's why you pay a premium" is fine, but after showing why this shouldn't be the case....

I'm 6'4" 248lbs - BMI 31 "Obese"

Definitely not "abs" but I'm "gym / /fit/" - infact I've gone from 243lbs to 248 and it's pretty much all fat (I'm 32 now and diet has dropped/attendance to gym dropped), But the vast majority comes from my type of build and muscle mass - broad shoulders, wide thighs (no skinny jeans for me).
I'm not special - my strength for my time training and size is very average, but BMI would have me having extra premiums on health insurance, if I were female I'd be having extra scans to ensure my baby is growing correctly etc.

I don't totally oppose BMI - it's likely a good average scale - but there should be a lot of other factors used - maybe measure body fat%, resting heart rate/blood pressure (some plain unhealthy fat people have great blood pressure...) I dunno...

The point of bmi is that it's very simple to calculate and you dont have to check levels of things like body fat or blood pressure, etc ... It's only meant as a baseline as a quick thing to check for people who are overweight or sedintary.

Holy shit that's ridiculous. Guess I underestimated the weight of linemen, probably also strongmen etc... too then.
