Thoughts on BMI

I'm not sure what I think about BMI as a measure for weight and health.

Here is a link to a BMI chart https://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/health/edu...MI/bmi_tbl.pdf

My current BMI is 22.8, so right in the middle (little higher than middle) of normal.This is down from a BMI of 36.x, so obviously a good change in the right direction, but I just wonder how accurate it is on the individual level.

I'm sure it's a useful proxy when looking at large groups of people or the population as a whole, but since the typical BMI chart doesn't take frame, age, gender, race or a bunch of other things into consideration I just wonder how useful it is?

Thoughts?

When your exact weight is not listed it means it's 20.x or 21.x. Like mine is 22.8- not an even 22 since my weight is between 22 and 23.

A BMI calculator will give you the .x number.

BMI is a general population tool that has restricted relevance to individuals - depending on circumstance.
