The BMI is bunk. It doesn't take into account your muscle mass, bone density/weight and other important factors.<br><br><br><br>
Here's a link all the same. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br><a href="http://nhlbisupport.com/bmi/" target="_blank">http://nhlbisupport.com/bmi/</a>

Here's a link to a really easy BMI calculator, but as the people above said, BMI isn't completly acurate.

I don't pay attention to the BMI, body fat percentage is a better indicator in my case, I am almost 6 foot, 260 lbs but I'm built with a very muscular frame. so while I'm a 40 BMI in reality I'm equal to about a 30 BMI according to my doctor... still overweight but not morbidly obese like a 40

A friendly note - it's helpful to take a look at the <b>dates</b> on threads when you're replying... This thread is from 2006. I doubt people are still looking for answers three and a half years later!
