Is it true that you can determine your body frame with index finger and thumb for ideal weight calculation? Or regardless of the frame, BMI rules?

The thumb and index measurement are a rough guide.
Bmi should not be taken as an absolute standard it does have to be adjusted slightly for your frame.
