How to know how much of body weight is fat? How much fat is ideal? - Online Doctor Chats
I have a general query. How do I know how much weight of mine is fat (in percentage terms). How much is ideal to get a lean/muscular body. do we have facility to test this with HealthCare Magic?
the fat percentage, is usually done in person, with a skin pinch test with a instrument
such a fat percentage assessment , is usually available at most good Gyms with a good trainer
the ideal fat percentage in a male is about 20-25 %
Is there a machine or something (like a weighing machine), which tells us this percentage? or its a manual process like using a clipper or so.
if the percentation is above 25 % in men, it is considered as obese
yes, the skin pinch method, is a anthropological method, to test body fat
various parameters of the human body, such as circumferences of various body parts or thicknesses of skinfolds is used to check the percentage
the body fat caliper is the instrument used for this purpose
the other way, is to assess , just by extrapolation from the BMI
just give me a few moments
i shall calculate your average percentage
which is considered as average levels
the levels for Fitness - in males is 14-17%
the levels to be considered as ATHLETIC - in males is 6 -13%
Have u followed my suggestions ?

take care and have a good day
