I understand that muscular people score pretty high on the BMI because muscle weighs more than fat. Are weight lifters obese? So, no, I don't think the BMI is all that it is made out to be. We need other measures as well.

I believe that it is a good tool, but it shouldn't be the only way that your health is measured.

There has been some controversy about BMI (Body Mass Index). Do you believe that BMI is a healthy way of measuring your health?
