I got 4/5 but I hesitated so much on question 5. I finally decided you were comparing it to just a regular 'bathroom scale' and decided that yes, the BMI IS more accurate than that. Had we sat down in person, I would have stated all the reasons posted as to why this question was false. I use the BMI as one measure and not an end-all-be-all of determining someone's health. I have lots of clients who register as overweight with very low body fat because their muscles are very developed. Number 5 tricked me up, but not because I think the BMI is perfect but because I wasn't sure what you were basing its accuracy against lol

Let's have a quiz on body fat percentage next. That's my current obsession.

It would have been really really sad if I got any of that wrong because I am obsessed with fitness, health & nutrition!

5/5...easy! I know for a fact that BMI doesn't work for my body. I'm on the short side and very muscular, so even at a "normal" BMI, I can be underfat. I have to be at least 110 or so to even be at a BF% where I can menstruate properly.
