    Gives me 19%. Comparing my own body to the image above, I'd have to say I thought I'd be more in the 20-25% range.

    Gives me 3% on the calculator. Comparing my own body to the image above, I'd have to say I'm in the 12-20% range. So it's odd since the true military tape tests make most everyone fatter than they really are...

    Crazy. Just used those calculators for the first time. I like the number 26% much better than the 40% my crap scale gives me!

    For what it is worth, according to that calculator and my starting measurements (in Oct 2012), I was 27% body fat. My weight at that time was 180, so that means I was 49 lbs of fat, and 131 LBM.

    Today, I measure such that the calculator says I am 19% body fat. I weigh 154 today, so I am 29 lbs of fat and 125 LBM.

    And, for what it is worth, my health-o-meter scale said I was 22% body fat when I started, and today it says I am 16% body fat.
