Does anyone know how this BMI calculation works????

Here is a link of a BMI calculator.  It calculates your BF using height, weight, and waist size.

How does this work?  One calculation gives me a 34% BF reading, then taking waist size into consideration, I have a 13%BF reading.  Both readings are incorrect.

I think that it is bull!!!! The first is basically BMI, which I DON"T AGREE with at all. then the next I think might be a little more acurate but I still have a hard time believing it because some people workout their waist line so it is a thick muscle area and some others like me have a fat belly. So those are my thoughts

I have been told that a BMI calculation doesn't take into account where body fat lies on your body and is just a quick guide as to the fat versus hieght of a person. It is not a pure scientific result but more of a strong indicator as to how much weight/fat you may need to lose to improve your health. I used the following email address to get mine and get help with dieting: ***@****, The guy was realy nice and explained a lot to me. Hope this helps.
