Although the BMI formula does provide somewhat accurate insight when it comes to the correlation between your height and weight, there are some things to consider:
-Genetically speaking, women do tend have more fat than men. The formula is the same for both.
-Older individuals typically have more fat than younger adults. Again, the formula is the same regardless of age.
-The formula is not always the most accurate for highly trained athletes. In fact, according to this, athletes tend to have a high BMI. When in reality, the body weight is due to high muscle mass. Muscle weighs more than fat, but you’d have no way of distinguishing that in the formula.
