As you can see from the pictures above body fat % means how much fat you have and not how much muscle you have so for example…

You can be 10% body fat and look ripped or you could be 10% body fat and be very skinny with very little muscle mass & very little ab definition.

2. Use the cartoon chart…

3. Use the body fat calculator below…

Summer Davis

Hi Adrian. My name is Summer and I really really need help. I am 186.6 pounds and I'm only 12 years old. I know that's really bad. See, when I was a little kid I had a problem where I couldn't taste food. So, I was really skinny. Like all bones. At 3 years old, I got surgery to remove what ever it was. Then at 5 I started kindergarden at a normal weight. During second grade I started gaining. By third grad I was about 120 pounds. Last year in 6th grade I lost like 20 pounds but that winter I gained it all back. It's because I didn't want to be the only one in my friend group who had to be on a diet and work out. All of my friends are naturally skinny. So, now I understand it was stupid of me to do that. So I would like to change. But anyway. I want to lose about 80 pounds. That is alot but I would like to lose it by Christmas. During the rest of the summer I have to go to camp. So that's like 7:00 am- 4:00pm. So I still have time to workout. During the school year, I wake up at 6:30 am and go to school at 7:45 am. Then I get home at about 3:00pm. I really need an excercise plan that will give me more burning in less amount of time. And I don't know what to eat because its not like I can buy or make all of these fancy foods because I am a kid and whatever I have for dinner and lunch is what I have, no question. Please help me. I'm begging you.

Arielle

Hi Adrian,
I'm 5'7" weigh 145 pounds. According to my Accu Measure body fat calipers I'm about 20% bf. But, my picture looks more like the 25% pic above. I'd like to achieve a more lean, bikini model physique. I feel that most of my bodyfat is in my belly. I'm trying to lose the fat but build curves at the same time. I already eat clean and workout regularly but I feel like I'm not seeing the results I am striving for.

This test says i'm obese. That isn't even close. I'm 5'6" 150ibs last I knew and its all in my butt and boobs. Its sad when society thinks a size 10 is obese. This is why I'm starting a women are beautiful no matter what movement. Because weight and body perfection is not beauty.

May 25, 2014

Liz

Are you sure you weren't looking at the range for men? Because I'm 5'6 170lbs and it said that I was in a good range.

June 07, 2014

Charlie

Don't use a scale by itself. You need to buy some calipers and do a body fat % test. If you don't fall in the healthy range, it's time for diet and exercise.

This is what's wrong with America. YOU ARE OVERWEIGHT. You cannot deny that. Now I don't hate for it, but try to better yourself instead of excuses.

Melanie

Hey, I think a size 10 is tiny it's not big at all. I wear a 16, I wonder what people think about me, I really don't think about it just if it fits I wear it if it doesn't then I don't buy it, if you are a size 10 your not fat at all.

October 01, 2014

destiny

This was a very inaccurate test. It says I have 36% fat. But I took an electronic test provided at my gym and it says I have 30% fat. I am guessing what set this off was the inches around my hips (I have wide hips) I have wide hips and a large butt (of which has grown since I started working out). But this was fun. I hope you put on this page some where that, this test only gives an average reading and should not be takin too seriously.

keith moroney

hi just done ur test there and my body fat was 14 percent,im 34 hav a 33 inchwaist 43 inch chest fairly big upper body and very tight but i got a calipers test today in gym nd my bodyfat showed up over 20 percent according to gym instructor,he took pinch for back of my arm,my stomach and my back and told me i was over 20 percent body fat which i was quiet shocked cause im fairly muscly lookin,im 5ft 10 and weigh 88 kilos,would the caliper test b right and im holdin fat in my lower back

December 19, 2013

Adrian Bryant

the caliper test may be more accurate but it's most accurate when you are pinched in more than 4 spots

December 20, 2013

Mehrab

Okay so im 15 turning 16 this month my neck is 14 inches my height is 65 inches my waist is 29.5 and i got 11.06 percent body fat these are some pictures i took today of my body imgur.com
imgur.com
imgur.com
As you can see a have a slight pouch it happens when i sit down to now my body fat was 17 percent and my arms and chest were not so defined / muscular but by using your website and plans i managed to do this i sadly dont have before after pics. So what my question to you is should i start ab workouts? Or burn just a bit more and then start?

December 05, 2013

Mehrab

I dont have weights/most of the equipment required what do i do now? Thank you for your reply btw.

December 06, 2013

Mehrab

Can you make a custom plan of the 6 week plan for people without weights or equipment

December 07, 2013

Adrian Bryant

look thru those workouts again, not all of them require special equipment and you only need to pick at least 1

December 08, 2013

Mehrab

Oh sorry yes i see
So i can do the same workouts from 1 and 2 for 6 weeks coz i see on the example you cnahed them up every week which i cant do coz i can only do 2 from the list and also if i do these workouts im guess i"ll increase the intensity slowly?

December 08, 2013

Adrian Bryant

yes, the same ones can be done until they get too easy for you

December 08, 2013

Mitch

I'm 5' 5", weigh 115lbs, neck 13in, waist 26in and it says im 3.27% body fat?? I am very muscular and lift 5-6 days a week but In wrestling last year I was 8% according to them. Is it even possible to be 3%?? Every site i visit says either 1% or 3%. I might be 6% but deffinitly not 3. Is there a more accurate test out there??

October 18, 2013

Adrian Bryant

water weighing or having a multiple site caliper test is more accurate

October 20, 2013

Melanie

Hey, this said I was 42 percent body fat, I don't think I'm that high, I am like only 37 percent not 42

October 01, 2014

M

Adrian, If this is your web site. You need to change this. Because

This is NOT correct at all.

I freaked out when I entered my numbers and it said I was OBESE. I entered my information and it said I was 108% fat. Which is a bunch of lie. Maybe 10 years ago when I was over 370 lbs and had the gastric by pass. But I am 5'4'' right now. I weight 165 lbs. I still havent had any plastic surgery done and I wear a size 10 in clothes because I have toned up some but still have loose skin. I just had that test where they check your muscle fat percentage and I am about 23%.

How can this thing say I am still Obese? By the size of your neck, your height, your size of your waist (Which is mostly loose skin but its still there).

Plus plastic surgeon told me he can remove another 25lb all over my body but I am still loosing. So I want to loose more to get a better result when I do an expensive surgery.

Obese? All my life I been super obese and for this thing to say it to me made me hurt. If I had to use the cartoon chart to say what my body looks like, it looks just like the 20% girl. I am very atheletic and run 6-8 miles a day. I am sorry but your calculations are wrong. I am dissapointed.

It says that if I am 200lbs and loose 30 lbs I will be at 18percent body fat. NO DUH. I weight less than that right now. This is the worst body fat percentage rate I have ever seen. But yeah I will have a flat stomach once I have the skin removal.

September 04, 2013

Gabby

So use another website like:
www.webmd.com
www.nhlbi.nih.gov
www.cdc.gov
www.mayoclinic.com

And maybe you entered in your measurements wrong because I have had the skin caliper test done and this was extremely close much closer than any others I have done. But there is no way you are only at 20%! I am 5'7.5 weigh 142.2 and weight train and do extreme cardio 6 days a week and I am not even that low! There are also many websites to look at for height/weight charts that show what weight range you should be in. Hope this helps!

September 04, 2013

Melanie

I don't think your body fat percentage is 108 over 50 is too high to measure, I can't see you but your weight is fine this thing said I was 42 percent when I'm 37 percent, which is probably still high but I'm overweight so it's going to be more than normal. I'm sorry this test hurt your feelings but it's probably not all the way accurate.

October 01, 2014

Mehrab

HELP! So im doing the older version of your "how to get muscle without weiths" and following your basic muscle eating plans. And my fat is 14% i"d like it to drop to 10. What do i do? Do i stop working out and concentrate on fat loss? P.s i kinda want to do both at the same time i have no access to a gym.

August 06, 2013

Alyssa

For those who are freaking out thinking this is totally accurate, it's not. Everyone carries weight differently and measurement simple do not do justice because everyone's frame differs. I have gone from 125 with a bfp of 23% and am now down to 115 with bfp of 16% and according to my measurements on this sight I am at 33% and obese. I'm built curvy but am thin, flat stomach and definition as well. I was actually offended after trying this, so ladies don't freak out just yet. Go and try the real thing out!

July 09, 2013

Claud

Yeah people should pay attention to the keyword ESTIMATED and not trust the result here fully. An electric Fat Percentage measurement device is actually pretty cheap if anyone wants a MORE reliable measurement.

July 24, 2013

mari

Hi Adrian! I'm 33, 5'3, weigh 125. According to this calculator my body fat % is 33.43%....which is obese. It's terrible because I don't even weigh that much but do have a waist measurement of 34, neck 13 and hips 37. Please help!!! what can I do lower my body fat% to get a flat stomach but not lose too much weight and be too thin. I now do 30 minutes a day of cardio & strength training from home and eat pretty clean. I'll be happy to have my body fat % to be between 20-25. Thanks!

June 16, 2013

Coppola

I guess this was what you want me to see..

Well, here is a good example where you don't even talk about skinfold calipers and you give the %. I'm just disappointed because i bought a caliper and the % i get is away less realistic that if i do the test here on your calculator or any other calculator that asks a waist measure..

Calipers - i got 11% body fat (witch i DON'T)

Now Loss Calculator - I got 16% body fat (witch i agree because if is not 16% is a close number but 11%? No way)

So OR i'm using the calipers on a wrong way OR i'm using the calipers on a wrong way because i don't believe that 10000000 people are wrong on internet and i'm the one right so .. I'm using that thing in a wrong way.

That's why i asked you to make some review or post about that but that's ok, it is not really necessary and i don't mind.

Thank you anyway

im 16 weigh 135 have a body percentage of 24-25% 35b-29w-41h my goal in 22-24 inch waist and a slightly bigger butt im starting to go to the gym alot but ill see results then it'll change i think im building muscle in my waist please help ? the classes im taking is zumba , body combat , and working out with the weights .

May 24, 2013

Adrian Bryant

how often are you doing these classes and what workout with weights are you doing and are you tracking calroeis?

May 25, 2013

Leo

FYI. You may want to check your recommendations here regarding your percent of body fat. You are encouraging people to veer into the underweight "unhealthy zone" with your claim that 18-25% body fat (for men) is "Acceptable, but needs work." According to the CDC, 18-25% is the "healthy" range. With under 18% veering into the underweight.

Here's my source: www.cdc.gov

May 16, 2013

Coppola

You are right Leo but your talking about BMI (Body Mass Index) and BMI is not the same thing as BFP (Body Fat Percentage).

BMI just deal with your weight and your height, it tells you if you got the right weight according to your bone structure and that's it.

BMI doesn't tell you your percentage of muscle and fat.. In other words you can have the right weight according to your height BUT that ''right'' weight can mean also too fat and less muscle.. And there is where BFP helps you.

In fact it is pretty possible to have 2 guys with the same BMI number and with different body fat percentage. I can weight the same as you and look much more ripped why? Because you got more fat than me and i got more muscle than you and if our heights are the same too we will have the same BMI number but different BFP numbers..

Peace out.

May 24, 2013

Chris

I love your site, but guess this calculator is off for some people. You are right it is lower than what the body fat scale says.

I am female, 5'6.5" 150lbs with 24.5 waist, 38.875 hips ( I have been growing my glutes with tons of heavy lifts and it grew from 36.5 to 39 so far) and 12 neck.

The calculator has been saying 23% for months and months, although my measurements and scale weight have gone down, clothes feel different..and my abs are showing..obliques, etc... and my biceps and triceps are showing and have separations..and my calves and quads have some definition. I do carry excess fat on my lowerbody and have more work there to do, but when looking at the picture comparisons above..the first women's comparison, I am definitely between the 15-18% look based on the muscle I can see and the striations on shoulders, etc.

So , my point is for people to not get upset and discouraged when using online calculators. They just aren't accurate and neither are calipers or any other measurement due to many variables. I had ultrasound, under water, caliper tests done all within hours of each other to see...all had wildly different numbers. So there goes that...

Even DEXA scans are inaccurate according to the studies I read.

So, rely on your own measurement progress and your own picture progression. Take pictures and measurements. That will be more telling. Nobody is going to ask you what your weight or body fat percentages are...they are just going to go by what you look like.

I weigh 150 and wear size 2 jeans! So, just wanted to throw that out there for people so they don't get discouraged when using calculators. They mess with your mind lol.

This results probably are not much accurate :/

I'm male and with the information i put about me the result was 16,3% of body fat..
It's true that i can't see my abs and its true that i just got a small belly but i'm positive that i should have more than 16,3% of body fat..

I`m an average skinny guy and i just started working out this past week. I want to start gaining mass. I just want be a bigger guy. Now, i have a little gut. A little body fat. I don`t if I should start doing AB exercises or cardio fat destroying exercises. I wouldn`t even say its fat, nothing major anyway. A little belly lol. If i suck my gut in, my stomach is literally flat. I don`t have any stretch marks. Apparently my body fat (bmi) is 22%. Anyway, I am trying to gain mass (get bigger) .. though i want to get abs. How it this gonna work? I`m just confused on what exercises or cardio i should do to get rid of my stomach fat-gut and also maintain to gain mass(put weight on)

Elle

Hello Adrian. I am a 14 year old girl who is 5'2'' and weighs around 110 lbs. I am not overweight, but I do have some fat I'd like to lose and my ultimate goal is to reach 105 lbs. According to this, I have a 22% body fat percentage. What I'm aiming for is just to get rid of my belly fat and my thigh fat in a way that would be healthy for a growing 14 year-old girl. I don't want to become "ripped," nor am I concerned with showing off any "muscles" (I find the pictures of women with body fat below 18% to be rather ghastly anyway, and not something I'd really want to look like). I really would like to just seem thinner without going to unhealthy extents. Any suggestions?
By the way, I am keeping track of my calories and I am a sprinter on the track and field team. However, in the middle of exam week when I have off from school for studying I find it to be a problem with intermittent snacking between my meals. It's getting out of hand, and while I don't eat foods that are unhealthy, I simply eat too much in between (instead of the 1300 calorie diet needed to lose a few pounds, I'm eating more around 1500 calories and am stuck at 110 for now). Coming from a family with hearty appetites to begin with, it's difficult for me to manage to eat smaller portion sizes than they do when it comes proper mealtime, so eating "five to six small meals" is out of the question. All I really need to do is just stop this unnecessary snacking. Could you possibly offer me some advice on this?

Thanks,
Elle

January 22, 2013

Adrian Bryant

what about 2-to-3 bigger meals? would that fit your lifestyle better?

January 22, 2013

Elle

That is what I've been doing. The problem is snacking. I need to reduce the amount of food I eat between meals but I don't know how to do so.

I'm probably at 25% body fat... I weigh 124.4 lbs and I'm 5ft 2.5inches. I want to join the field and track team and to do this I need to lose about 15-20 pounds... My ultimate goal is 3 months but if I can do it before than with 5-6 days a week of exercising I will! I eat healthy already so that's not a problem. I would look good with 15%
images.tvrage.com
The problem is in my thighs, arms, and STOMACH big time! Oh, and my butt jiggles a lot too :(
What's the day to day strength and cardio instructions? I would prefer to do strength only 3 times a week and cardio 5-6 times.

November 06, 2012

mandy

I've just doen my measurements, and came out at 22.5%. (5'8, waist 28inches, hips 37). Id be very pleased with this as my home body fat scales are consistently measuring me at 28/29 %!! How do I know which reading is most accurate and why is there such a big difference?! (I'm 29 yrs old, female)

November 02, 2012

Adrian Bryant

this is not the most accurate but it is more accurate than the electric bodyweight scale

November 03, 2012

Melanie

This scale on this site said I have 33.4 percent body fat, but i really think it's more like 31 or 32 but that is not too bad off. I know it needs to be lower but it's just not right now. and someone that was complaining about a body fat of 25 percent stop it that is not high at all.

hey adrian please replyy backk

i get 12% when I put in your stats

July 22, 2012

Chelsea

I am 5'3", 21 years old. I weigh about 120. (Waist 25". Hips 36") My body fat percentage came out as 20.22% First within what percentage of accuracy would you say this test is? And secondly, what is your best tip for maintaining weight? I've never really weighed more than I do now. I prefer myself at about 115 simply because my clothes seem to fit best at that weight. It is not difficult for me to lose, but it can be difficult to keep the scale from creeping back up, especially in the summertime, which is funny because I actually eat less. Any tips?

the most accurate way to test bodyfat is to do a caliper test at 3+ sites

I'm 13 and I'm 11.37% body fat, but my stomach is only flat in the mornings......

That's exactly how I am. Except right after I eat, it swells up a little and then it goes back down.

Online fat percentage calculators definitely overestimate. I know from a legitimate body fat calculator that I'm approximately 12.5% body fat...I'm a 5'2 and 105lb female with a good bit of muscle. This tells me I'm 18.5% and I know that's just not true.

Just wanted people to know your body fat percentage might be less than this says so don't feel bad, just keep working out hard! :)

Hi Adrian,
I'm 5'3" and I weigh 145lbs, measurements 34-27-42. My body fat percentage according to the calculator is 30.92% but I would like my measurements to be 34-25-45 while decreasing the body fat I have. The majority of my hips are butt cause i have slender hips and I suspect my stomach is the culprit for the fat percentage, cause i have a pouch that sits just below my navel area. How can I lose my fatty stomach, and add the 3" on my hips/butt? And could this be done in two months?

I'm 24 years old 5'7 150 pnds and apparently have 31.5% body fat. I guess I'm obese. People say i look good but guess they lying. Should i eat 1000 calories or 500 to burn fat?

did you use the calculator on this page?

remember, this is not the most accurate way of testing your bodyfat

I am military and I put in my current measurements and it pretty accurate. I love the fact that this isn't dependent on numbers. Our old fat content system was dependent on body weight numbers. This gives a much better measurement of your bodyfat percentage. It does help a person see how much they may have to lose to be within a healthy range for their height.

I am well on my way to better health because of you Adrian and your DVD.

I know I'm not the expert you were hoping to answer your questions, but I know from experience that eating less than 1200 calories a day can cause your metabolism to shut down. As long as you keep exercising you'll continue to loose weight simply because your body has to burn something for energy, but the second you let up exercising or give in to a little splurging you will literally gain all that weight back within the next few days. Also I think you are in fact at a healthy weight range. I don't think your obese from those statistics.

I'm 5'9" 177 lbs. with a 29" waist and 44" hips and apparently I'm obese so I was just wondering what my weight/measurements should be to be considered not obese. Thanks! Love the Jlo booty workout!

it's not about what a chart or someone tells you... if you feel good about yourself then don't worry about what others think
