Check this out.

Do you think there is enough information requested to make the test results correct? Do you think other variables should be taken into consideration?

"Screw you guys, I'm not fat - I'm big boned!!!" Cartman :D

Note: Since Body Fat Percentage calculations use total body weight and not estimates of lean muscle mass and fat, BMI can not determine between the overweight and the more muscular. Use our Body Fat Calculator and Waist to Hip Ratio Calculator in combination with our BMI Calculator for a more accurate view of your body fat.



I am Obese :? :cry: 30.68

I think i`d have to loose all my body weight and perhaps a leg to make the ratio

but then we run the waist hip calculation and Im low risk .95 :? :lol:

But a body fat percentage calculater is more accurate where you can use both stats

Stryke, you're not alone - I'm in the overweight range according to BMI but with the body fat index I'm acceptable, and low risk in hip/waist.

I am a sturdy 5'8" woman. I am solid (and I don't mean fat)
My father was 6'3" man who was big (and I don't mean fat)
I am my father's daughter (in many ways).

I think genetics is certainly a factor.

(I edited this post after a miscalculation of the BMI)

I think these researchers and statisticians miss the point a little .

the ideals are quite often on the tooth pick side of society .

while fat and excess is a huge problem , some of there ideals seem more the non athletic office worker than the guy on the farm , or working construction .

I know I could probably afford to loose 10 pounds , But my physique and health are best judged by the mirror than some weird ratio .

I could go hit the gym seriously and probably put on another ten pounds this year , and then if I kept the same ration i`d probably be morbidly obese .

they can be usefull as indicators , but not to be taken as life or death asessments .
