BMI is not just flawed it's seriously flawed. The best indicator of obesity is the caliper test.

Ok whatever, I though that I could get every member to vote in the poll, but with 30 votes we are not going to get good results.

Thanks all that voted.

It would probably have helped if you'd explained what BMI stood for, how it was computed, etc.  Not immediately recognising the initials, I came up with "Bloody Marvelous Image",  and a couple of others that shouldn't appear in this forum.  

While I know I'm overweight, I have no idea what my BMI is. And at this stage of my life, I really don't care! oldman
