Is BMI accurate measure of your ideal body weight?

No it is not really. Yes, it is a 'guide' or suggested weight to height ratio, but it doesn't take into account a numebr of factors.

It doesn't take account fo an individual's amount of fat vs muscle. One can weigh more than the person next to them, but still have a much lower body fat percentage. The person weighing more will have a higher BMI, but in actual fact, be at a better weight than the lighter person who has more fat (as we all know, muscle weighs more than fat).

Also, linked to the fat/muscle ratio, you may be the correct weight for your hright, but have a lot of fat and still look out of shape. A healthy body is a muscular one (not butch, but lean muslce) with a low body fat percentage.

So yes, try get to your ideal BMI, but don't sit back and think you have achieved perfection at that level. You can still work on elminating fat and increasing msucle for a healthier and better looking body.
