I used to work in an ambulance control room. I took a call from a GP who was booking an urgent transfer for one of his patients. When we got to the 'any other information' part, he said: 'I have to tell you, this patient is VERY heavy. You'll need at least two crews to lift her, possibly more.'

That's 6+ people. I asked 'How heavy is she?' thinking I might need to get the fire service to assist, and he said: 'Well ... she's at least ... 15 stone!'

That's the weight of a tall man!

The whole BMI thing is really a con. Take a body builder. They are very heavy due to all their muscles. Muscle weighs more than fat. So they could be 5' 10" and weigh 21 stone of pure muscle. Yet his BMI would be 42.2, which would class him as morbidly obese?

I think you should be at a weight where you feel happy and healthy. BMI is nonsense in a lot of cases.
