BMI as a potential part of profiles

Here's an idea that I'm sure will ruffle some feathers, but it needs to be suggested IMO.

What would it take to include a BMI calculator on this site? For all memebers. It's a fairly simple calculaton of height to weight and available on a lot of health related sites. The reason I ask is that I have seen a lot of profiles that claim they are a "few pounds overweight" or average, and when they offer their height and weight, it's way out of wack with what might be considered a healthy guideline... if they even bother to include this at all. IMO, it would make searching here a little easier if this could be added and established as a required field.

I am sure they could link a site such as the following where you can Calculate your BMI

But that would not mean that individuals still would not "fudge" the results.

BMI is not accurate if anyone has built up extra muscle mass. For instance, The Rock would be considered as obese according to BMI even though his bodyfat level is relatively low, because BMI does not distinguish between muscle and fat. So for the average person with average musclessmass, BMI may be ok, but for people who have above average muscle mass, its not a good idea to measure their BMI, because it can make a bodybuilder with an extra 30 lbs of muscle mass above average seem like an obese person who needs to lose weight, even if they have only 9% bodyfat.
