    Shannon, this is so totally bogus because it depends on average measurements and average proportions. Because I'm a very short person with freakishly tiny wrists and no waist so to speak, the formula would put me at somewhere like 35%. Which is ridiculous.

    this...
    if you want to know your BF% get a bodpod done. Calipers will be pretty inaccurate too or a Dexa, may cost you $$$ but will be much more accurate, also it will calculate your TDEE as well

    Use the mirror, if you get leaner, then thats all that matters

    I bought a set of calipers on Amazon for under $10. It may not get 100% accurate result, but I do get the same measurement every time. So I think it is effective to establish a baseline and track progress.

    Hi, once you have your baseline measurements then by working out your total body fat and fat free mass, you can monitor how the training and diet are going, the percentage really doesnt matter

    Wrist measurement doesnt come into the calculation for females

    The precetage really doesnt matter, but once a calculation has been done then by monitoring of the total body fat and fat free mass will enable the person to see how the diet and training has affected results. Much the same with most other methods of body fat calculation devices

    Doug,

    Thank you for taking the time to provide me with that information, especially as a newbie here.

    at least it gives me an idea where I am, so I will know better down the road if my training is taking me where I want to go.

    it appears that I have a good bit of work ahead of me :-)

    28% is not a bad figure, you can have a calculation performed anytime, normally monthly is a good method
