Anybody got a BMI of 25-30 and less than 15% body fat?

Tell me about your diet and exercise habits....

I'm thinking of making changes to my weight lifting routine.

BMI is a crock of crap. It doesn't consider lean muscle mass.

That's why OP is asking the question. He's looking to build muscle and maintain a leaner physique, which would mean a high BMI with low bodyfat percentage.

my bmi

My BMI is 32 (meaning obese) but my body fat was 14% few weeks ago (caliper)

Exercise wise,

I lift weights 3 days a week for 2 hours each - 2 body parts per workout. I change my workout routine every 2 months, which I highly recommend as it will shock the system (or your body will get used to the workout).

I do indoor cardio 2-3 days a week as well for 1 hour (in winter).

In warmer weather - I change things around a bit for cardio. I basically ride 20-30 miles a day for about 5 days. This is still on top of the weight lifting.

My diet is horrible - I basically workout so I could eat whatever I want (within reason). If I had a regimented diet, I'm sure I could bring down my body fat to 8-10% range but would suck the joy out of my life
