Lots of complaints have been voiced about using body mass index (BMI) to gauge healthy body weight. The number is often inaccurate for muscular athletes or older people.

Apparently neck circumference will give better clues to body fat composition than BMI. We wonder if this study will make Neckline Slimmer sales rocket sky-high.
