What easily measurable/calculatable value would you rather use than BMI?
But there are a lot of H/W combinations that can get you to a 26.8 or any other BMI for that matter. I'm not sure there is one-stop shop metric, nor do I really believe there's a need for one. With that said, I believe height, weight, and BFP can really give someone an idea of what kind of shape someone is in. Far more so than BMI.
