    I know how to work out my BMI but does anyone know how to work out their % of body fat?

    I have weightwtchers scales that tell you all that. Apparently they pass a small electric charge (you don't feel it) through your body in order to measure body fat, water etc.

    You need a calipars (spelling) to take measurements of loose skin in certain areas or get one of those weighing scales :)

    Funny- I asked my son just that about half an hour ago!! Can't afford any new gizmos- but at a guess I think I must still be nigh on 50% blubber.
    No- can't be quite that bad as my bones must weigh something.

    Anyone know how to work out how much your bones weigh ( he he!!)
