I have looked at a few different BMI's and the only information I have seen them ask for is height and weight. How is it they can say some one is obese or overweight if they only know those two things. (I guess they also ask for age too.) Shouldn't it also ask for your body type. I put in information for Darren Sproles, K-State running back, and his BMI score is 29. Which puts him one point away from being obese. My score is a 25(6'5", 210) Which puts me right at overweight. My point is the test doesn't seem to take into account muscle mass vrs fat mass.
So am I the only person who thinks the BMI is a farce?
Are there better tests to look at?
Mainly I am just looking for opinions and I know my opinion isn't laid out well but please feel free to critique it.
Edit for spelling
