    Question how to measure body fat without calipers?

    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

    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)

    thanks! neat calculator, not too sure about the accuracy but wtv, it's without calipers so it'll have to do. with some common sense and the calc i guess i'm around 12%... now i know at least roughly what to aim to get rid of... 5-8% to go!

    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


    1/4in- 5-9%
    1/2in- 9-13%
    3/4in- 13-18%
    1in- 18-22%
    1 1/2- 22-27%
    2in- 27-32%
    2 1/2in- 32-37%

    I agree, not sure about accuracy. I also wonder how this calculator figures in height? I does give a very quick ball park though.

    I believe that in the losing fat forum they have an "estimate your body fat" thread where you post your picture.
