|Body Fat Calculator
This Calculator is designed to give the approximate
percentage of body fat, based on weight and waist size as compared to
tables published by the American Medical Association. It does not use
any sort of caliper or hydro displacement (known as hydrostatic
weighing); therefore, some people say it is not as accurate. According
to the AMA, it is a pretty accurate guideline but is no substitute for
seeing a doctor. To do this self evaluation, select your gender on the
calculator. Enter your present weight and waist size. Click on Calculate
for the approximate body fat percentage to be displayed; compare the
result to the table below. You may change the values or click on Clear
Values to try again.
