The fact that the BMI is still used by anyone is beyond me. It is about as accurate as someone trying to measure water temperature by looking at it.
In order to get a more realistic idea of your BMI - it requires someone to actually take a physical test - caliper pinch test, water displacement
I agree, only using hight/weight to calculate BMI is useless.
