Yes. Oh boy, yes.

BMI is a load of bull -- it doesn't distinguish between muscular people and fat people.

There's a bajillion-dollar industry in convincing women that health issues that are largely genetic are in fact within our control. They get us one way on selling their magic nostrums and then the other way on selling us chocolate and liquor to help us deal with the self-hatred of failing.
