BMI is only a poor indicator of health when 1) a person is naturally a very muscular or big boned individual (think Norse God) or if a person, through exercise, has significantly decreased their body fat and increased their muscle size (muscle weighs more than fat)

For 95% of the people (illustrative stat only), it is accurate.

Hang on, if it's only below the 95th percentile, wouldn`t that make the thin one the norm? If being fat was the norm, the thin one would have to be under the 30th or so to be insulted.

"BMI is a load of crap anyway"

It is a good basic indicator of body condition, but it's not the ONLY indicator.

It`s only a "load of crap" if you`re too stupid to realise that.

"Hmm, I play lots of games.. eat when I can.. and yet I remain at ~ 165 lbs, which is underweight for me.. am I broken?"

Rapid metabolism.

To push fat people, gain 10kg and say: "If I can gain 10kg with a rapid metabolism, fat people can lose 5kg with a slow metabolism. Forced eating is a lot harder than not eating."
And it will be true.
