I weigh about 330 so then
(330 - 226)/330 = 31 % bodyfat... But I'm actually around 15% bodyfat.

Just like BMI, your FFMI isn't linear with height, and thus making absolute assumptions about 25 being the max you can obtain naturally is wrong and meaningless, IMHO.
There's some food for thought!

Right on Ox - not a fan of this attitude. I think it's motivated by the envy of lesser-mortals...
