Fitness Advice : How To Interpret Your Body Fat Percentage

Weight Loss Tip: Make weight loss fun and not a chore. Some people avoid exercise because they think of it as punishment instead of fun. Getting up and moving more each day provides results just as well as repetitive push-ups, sit-ups and squat-thrusts. Have fun and lose weight by shadow-boxing each time your least favorite contestant on a reality show appears on your television screen. Get in the habit of dancing at certain times of the day. Put on your favorite tunes and groove those pounds and inches off of your body.

Body-fat percentage measures the proportion of body fat to lean body mass, and 21 percent to 24 percent is average for women while 14 percent to 17 percent body fat is average for men. Calculate body fat percentage, taking into consideration age and body composition, with exercise advice from an experienced personal trainer in this free video on fitness.

  1. wow! I used to be in great shape… I was 17% body fat.. Now.. I am afraid to have it checked.. I need to get back into shape. Would anyone know how to loose weight fast and healthily?

  2. I’m really 0 percent body fat. Maybe actually around 0.2-0.5 max. You do the math. I’m 6’2 120. I hate being this way. I eat about 3000-4000 calories a day but I can’t seem to put anything on like food goes right through me. Anybody knows what’s wrong with me? And don’t give me that shit” that I’m not 0 percent it’s not possible.” cause I am. I think I may have a disorder

  3. I’m at 0 percent. I eat 2 to 3000 calories a day and don’t exercise. Not lying. I hate it. Just to put it in prespective. I’m 6’2 120 pounds. Im not anorexic. food seems to go right through me. Is something wrong with me? Should I go to a doctor? I must have a genetic disorder

  4. Carlos. You are funny!1 I agree. Some people are idiots. He should at least have the facts accurate. I have a huge problem with fitness professionals who claim themselves as such and don’t have a clue. lol

  5. I hate to tell you. If you’re 0 percent body fat my friend, You’re a scientific anomaly. You should be in a medical research study. Seriously?? ..
