Body Fat Calculator

When it comes to tracking weight loss, most of us rely on the scale to tell us whether we've lost or gained weight. But, a scale can't tell you how much fat you have or how much you've lost.  Knowing your body composition can ensure that you're losing fat and not muscle.  This body fat calculator will give you an estimate of your body fat percentage based on your measurements.
