When taking the BMI into consideration, please keep in mind that if you are very muscular, if you have an elevated bone mass, age, race, (and other factors), your BMI result could be incorrect.
One easy way I use to get a broad idea of my ideal weight
is simply to look at myself in the mirror: do I look overweight? Do I have a big belly or large hips? This is obviously a subjective test, but it certainly offers a quick way to verify.
