    It’s great. It tells people they’re fat and that bothers them. If you have a shit ton of muscle and still have a high BMI you don’t care because it’s obvious.

      It's fine for those who aren't athletes, very tall, or regularly lift weights ie the vast majority of people. When I was a dyel at 6'0 and 185lbs, a slightly overweight BMI, I was definitely kinda chubby since I basically had no muscle. Now at 6'0 190lbs I'm overweight by BMI again but I'm not fat since I lift and cycle 4-5x a week.

      As said if you have enough lean mass to be overweight by BMI it's going to be obvious to you and everyone who sees you. 99% of "BMI is bullshit" is just fatty cope.

        Basically this. In normal times it would have been a perfectly good means of getting obese women to wake the fuck up, but now the "health at any size crowd" thinks you can be 250 lbs under the guise of "its mostly muscle" or "i'm big boned".

          Both butter and seed oils are bad for you. You shouldn’t eat added fat.

      This.
      If you're muscular enough to be in the error area of the BMI calculation, then you're not gonna care about your BMI to begin with.

      This, body composition looks so much different even when you gain weight. That's why it's called "built fat"

    BMI unironically a better health marker than pretty much everything. Obviously there are outliers but most people are not NFL players, they are simply fat as shit which correlates with tons of co-morbidities. Optimal longevity weight for a 5’10/11 man is 160 lbs, average american man weighs like 205

    It makes sense for discussions of life expectancy and quality, considering musclemass will still tend to harm your joints and stress your organs.

    It's good at population level. For individuals a mirror works better.

    BMI is fairly accurate unless you have been roiding for a while or an elite natty athlete.
    99.9999% of the fat fucks who say BMI doesnt apply to them are delusional retards.
    Of course there will always be genetic outliers that IST will use as "proof" BMI is bunk.

    I think for a person who doesn't work out much it's very accurate. Anyone who works out 5 to seven days a week it isn't accurate.

      You would have to lift for like 10 years natty to hit overweight while remaining 15% or less bodyfat

            If you work out for 5 days a week for 2 years, your bmi would likely still be normal.

    It doesn't apply for me as I'm 205 and lean, but it's hilarious to see fatties and fat women claim BMI isn't accurate
