|Body Fat Calculator|
The measurements need to be accurate to within 0.5cm or 0. 25 inches (centimeters tends to produce the most accurate results) and should be taken as follows:
- Height: taken without shoes
- Neck: taken below the larynx sloping slightly downward at the front
- Waist: for men at navel height, for women at the smallest point
- Hips: (women only) at the largest point
After figuring your body fat percentage, go to these charts to find out your category.
Note: Body Fat Percentage
is not the same thing has BMI (Body Mass Index). There is an online
BMI calculator here.
