My problem with most of these is that they don't take into account the actual size of your body... For instance, our roommate is a couple inches taller than me, but if we stood back to back, my shoulders are probably 3 inches wider than his... At the same time, I weigh probably 20 lbs more than him... I am what many consider a large frame... I don't use it as an excuse, in fact, I now fall just inside what most consider ideal, but 8 months ago, I was 20 lbs over that... Just a slight change in what I do every day (scuba instructor/divemaster) versus prior, service manager...

The big flaw in this calculator, as well as others I have looked at, is that they do not take into consideration muscular builds. Or to make it simple, Muscle weighs more than Fat.

There is a big diff between the "Peoples' Choice" and the "Medical Recommendation". The Peoples' Choice seems realistic for me, while the top of the Medical would require me to be under 8% body fat (which I haven't seen since I was 21 and working as a rafting guide). The Peoples' Choice number this gave is only 5# below the goal I set for myself a couple of weeks ago; maybe I'll make this my new goal.

Sure, but really only a relatively small proportion of society has a muscular enough build that they would be classified as being overweight per BMI - it works well for the overwhelming majority of society and is so prevelent since an ever increasing proportion of many countries are overweight or obese, is simple to calculate and doesn't require any expensive equipment or invasive methods to measure.

Of course, percent body fat is a lot better if you are in reasonable shape, assuming it is measured by someone that knows what they are doing.
