    That's just plain fat. Well for a male.

    I think it's great you're learning all these buzz words and you're getting really involved in helping people, but it doesn't make anything you say worthwhile.
    I dont help people, i educate them.

    did at any point i say 30% bodyfat was not fat, no i didnt, LRN2READ.

    also your probably just a good ole fashion neckbeard anyway . . . .OMG I LEARNT ANOTHER BUZZ WORD

    Let me think, say there is a guy with 30% bodyfat but he looks slim with clothes on, so he looks in the mirror and think "im slim so obviously im healthy" But guess what, he is not healthy, he is actualy very unhealthy, that is why bodyfat % is important my friend, its not just about how you look
    You're being really obtuse. Who would look at themselves when fully clothed to try to gauge how happy their are with their body fat levels? Only people who kid themselves into needing all sorts of fancy contraptions think that having to know a particular number is the only way of being able to determine if their carrying too much fat.

    BRB, getting a dexa scan reading that says 27% of me is made up of fat, ah now I know I should concentrate on losing some fat :lolwut:

    I just tried the website for interests sake and it was accurate to within 2% in my case.
    I know my body fat as of 3 days ago because it was measured for a Biology Laboratory.
    Pretty impressive.
    What method of measurement was used for your Bio stuff?

    The scales you stand on in bare feet that send a current around your body and read how the signal is blocked by your fat cells (they don't conduct electricity as well). They take into account your gender, age, height and weight.
    My lecturer said they're pretty accurate.

    It's quite accurate. Mine came out at 11.6% and that seems right visually too.

    Well I didn't have a tape measure, but I know what my minimum and maximum measurements are so I tried with both and it said between 12.4% and 14.9% body fat, which is pretty bad considering I don't exercise... But I do eat a normal/large amount and have a fast metabolism
