Bmi claims I'm obese, but I don't deel that way at all. I'm 6' 5in and weigh 260 I have a very large football blockers frame what should my weight be?

BMI; IBW; frame: By traditional formula, your bmi = 30.83 "obese" ideal body weight ibw = 156.01 - 210.82 however, as you point out, these formulas do not take into account frame size or the density of lean muscle mass being greater than that of fat. This site (http://www. Dietandfitnesstoday. Com/bodyframe. Php) calculates frames size so you can adjust ibw (large frame adds 10%.

Are online BMI calculators accurate?

Yes, but...: The calculator will give you an accurate bmi, but how well that measures your fitness/health is unclear. I've had finely tuned athletes show up as obese according to bmi. If you're concerned about it just check with your doctor.

For what reasons was the BMI calculator even invented?

For studies: In order to study obesity, one has to have a definition of what it means to be obese. You can't simply use weight, as 200 lb might be obese for some people but would be a thin person if their height was 6 ft 8 in. Bmi takes into account height and weight. A bmi over 30 is considered obese.

Are online BMI calculators accurate or is one website more accurate than others?

Are online BMI calculators accurate or is one website more accurate than others?

All should be OK: If you enter your correct height and weight into any bmi calculator, the results should be correct. The exact meaning of a particular bmi might be open to interpretation as someone who is very muscular and has only 4% body fat might have a higher bmi than a couch potato who has love handles. For most of us, the bmi is a good indicator of appropriate weight versus overweight.

Could it happen that a BMI calculator tell the difference between muscle and fat?

No: Bmi is simply a calculation based on height and weight. Since muscle weighs more than fat, muscular people will have higher bmis than normal. Body builders typically have bmis in the "obese" category (over 30), but they are not obese and many times have very low body fat.

You sound healthy: While your bmi is considered 'underweight', remember that this is only a guideline, and you are small person by average standards. As long as you are active, eat healthy, and have no other health problems, I don't think you should be too concerned about a number.

Hello I'm 5'5 and my BMI is at 30 and a male, I feel like I've been losing weight. Even after eating a big meal no weight gain. Could this be diabete?

Hello I'm 5'5 and my BMI is at 30 and a male, I feel like I've been losing weight. Even after eating a big meal no weight gain. Could this be diabete?

Possible: Hi. Unintended weight loss can be seen with undiagnosed/untreated diabetes, but with other conditions as well. Is there a family history of diabetes? Do you have any other symptoms (up at night to pee, blurred vision, fatigue, thirst, etc)? Diabetes is easy to test for. Your BMI suggests possibility of unhealthy lifestyle. Eat healthily and exercise regularly, and of course, don't smoke. Good luck
