Sorry if this has been posted before but I searched and couldn't find the answer.
What is the most practical way to measure % of bodyfat with a reasonable level of accuracy? I currentlly have one of those Tanika scales that measures both weight and bodyfat%. Here's what it says about me:
My height is 5'9.5" (female, small frame)
Bodyfat% 36% (this was 34% until I'd been on PB a few days, then it went from 34 to 36%)
Now, if I were to lose 16% (25 lbs) of bodyfat (as if I could lose only bodyfat and no muscle), I would be at 133 lbs and I would look extremely thin. I was there back in my run-every day phase. That was a long time ago and I don't think being that thin would look good on me now.
Is the Tanika scale a good enough tool to use for this purpose?
