    19.8 and I rarely put on weight. I tend to stay at a steady weight irrespective of my eating/exercising habits. I'm rather slim and slender but broad shouldered.
    Start trying to work out who deserves what, and before long you’ll spend the rest of your days weeping for each and every person in the world.

    I beleive the "Body mass index (BMI) is a measure of body fat based on height and weight that applies to adult men and women." is inaccurate...

    When I was in school 15 years ago, I recall that the Body Mass Index isn't a schedule to determine if you're "fat" or in-shape, but rather an indication of the work your internal organs have to provide... Using "Obese" is a broad category, as it usually implies unhealthily fat. But in the context of BMI, it references a category of health because of the extra work-load ones' organs need to expend.
    A person can be fit, and still be "over" or "under" weight if their heart had to work harder; A person can be "fat" while being "median" (on-weight) and their organs, heart, liver, lungs, ect, don't require "extra" exertion.

    To find accurate body-fat composition, a water dunk-test (where you expel ALL the air from your lungs that you can, and submerge in a tank of water, then compare weight vs volume displaced) is the closest.

    Now to say "What is your body-fat%? (guestimate)" - of the WoW 8 players I personally know, I can say averaged together, they are in the ~35%+ range (excluding myself @ ~8%)

    Currently; 6'3" @ 198lb = 24.7BMI, 225lb bench @ 38reps + 425lb max, 100m=10.17s, mile=4:45; surprisingly, the web-site says I am not over-weight... go figure.

    18.5, just on the cusp of being underweight. Makes sense, I'm pretty damn skinny. I really hate my metabolism. I need to take in so many calories to bulk up. Tried it a few times and did pretty well for a while but got laid off and couldn't afford to eat the way I had to + supplements.

    I'm very interested in nutrition and the fact that humans can sculpt and morph their body if they put their mind to it. I have a bunch of friends that are absolutely gigantic and I always wanted to do it. One day I definitely plan on going back to bulking and gaining some muscle.

    BMI is not 100% correct when it comes to this stuff since it will overestimate the amount of body fat a muscular person has and it can even underestimate the amount of body fat a small framed person has.

    Because of this, it is recommended that you factor in your waist size as well (still not 100% accurate). Over 40 inches for men and 35 inches for women is another factor putting you in the obese category if coupled with a high BMI.

    BMI seems to screw up the taller people get. A healthy 6"4, muscular male will definately way more than 210 pounds.

    Anyway, my BMI is 25.

    You're not reading correctly. First of all, 6'5'' and 210 lbs is in the normal weight category at 24.9.

    Secondly, just because 160 is in the "middle" of the "normal" weight category doesn't mean that it's telling you most normal 6'5'' people are 160 or that you should be 160, that's not how it works. If you gathered that from it, then I can see why you think it's useless.

    The page with the BMI calculator tells you the limitations of BMI. It's actually a very serious tool as long as you know what it can and can't do. The meaning of the weight classes has to do with health risks and not really what someone should or shouldn't be. Larger people are usually at higher risk of blood pressure problems and the like and have to watch their weight more than a shorter person would.

    The point is, BMI is just 1 part of a tool set to help determine a general view of risk factors, not an end all be all stand alone tool that's 100% correct. You need to take into account other factors along with BMI since there are so many body types out there.
