i'm wondering how to measure body fat without calipers? i'm wondering because of my recent gains (~10lbs in around a month and a week n a half), and i'm sure that it's not all lean mass (well, maybe? lol). thanks in advance for the help!

have to guesstimate with weight and waist measurements
do you know what your waist was then and now?
there are various formulas and even calculators like this one http://www.weightsnet.com/Misc/calculators.html"Humility comes before honor"

and you get a different answer with all of them! (seriously, but the differences only equate to a small amount of weight, so you're okay)Jason Gold, B.S., C.P.T.

there was one in the book the nautilaus diet by ellington darden. it says to have someone pinch the back of your arm in between the elbow and shoulder and try to get only fat, no muscle, then measure how wide the pinch is. here is the chart to compare it to for men

It isn't that they cant see the solution.
