How to Measure Your Body Fat

As your weight is important, but the amount of fat in your body is equally important.

Combining both gives a more accurate picture of overall body fitness.

If you have a proper weight but too much body fat, your health could be in danger. The USDA recommendation is that no more than 30 percent of your daily caloric intake comes from fat.

Here’s how to measure:

  1. Using a millimeter ruler, pinch the fold of skin directly in front of your armpit, vertically in at the front of your thigh, and vertically an inch to the side of your belly button. Hold the ruler away from your body, as straight as possible.
  2. Add all three measurements together.
  3. Your total should be no higher than 100. higher than that means that you have more than 30 percent body fat.
