BMI by height and weight is NOT I repeat NOT and accurate gauge of correct weight or obesity. Muscle is not considered. Muscle weighs more than fat. A body builder with 10% fat but who weighs 200lbs at 5 ft 10, or Beyonce who has high muscle to fat ratio would both be considered obese. A more accurate reading would be from fat calipers. Even the old pinch an inch is better than height weight BMI!
