NPR: "But you may want to take those findings - and your next meal - with a grain of salt, because they're based on a calculation called the body mass index, or BMI." - Ahh, it's about time someone gave us a good set of reasons to hate the BMI. It's bogus! Problem is too may people use it today to determine if you're obese, or better yet morbidly obese.
BMI == bad
Here are some BMI fatty's for you, just so you get the "real" picture.
Brian Urlacher - BMI of 31.4. Obese. 6'4 258lbs.
Ronnie Coleman - BMI of 44.6. Obese, super fatty! 5'11 320lbs.
Mariusz Pudzianowski - BMI of 41.2. Obese, another super fatty! 6'1 312lbs.
I think you get the picture.
