How do I measure my body fat

  • I weight 155 but I also have muscles. When I weight myself on the scale it said 165. I don't know what I'm doing wrong

    I did a Google search. The best way is with devices such as calipers or weighing yourself in water (fat floats so your weight in water is muscle and bone). There are some formulas to calculate based on BMI (I don't like BMI, it's just based on your height and weight, no other measurements). I did find this:

    That may be the easiest for the lay-person to get an idea.
