We went to a health fair yesterday where my daughter and I had our body fat measured and I have some real doubts about the measurement but have no idea what method gives an accurate reading. They used a handheld device that you hold in front of you with outstreched arms after you type in age, sex, height, weight. It then comes up with your BMI and after a few seconds with your %of body fat.
My BMI was 21, %of body fat 22% and that seemed like it could be right.
My 14-year-old daughter's BMI was 20 and %of body fat 20. She has no visible fat on her body at all, very muscular, very successful on the high school swim team and physically active all day. Are these devices accurate? Do they work when used on teenagers?
What's the best way to measure body fat %?
You can talk to God all you want and that's great, but the changes happen when you start listening to him.
