    Self-Measuring Body Fat


    Which caliper product would you recommend for someone needing to self-measure body fat?

    Any of the Accufitness ones, I believe the Fat Track II is good enough or even the 15 dollar calipers......just go to a site and find a formula for 7,9, or 10 points to measure your body fat as it will be more accurate than 1 or 3.

    Thanks. I bought the Accu-Measure Fitness 2000 ($10 @ Nutraplanet).

    I spoke to a trainer friend who saw them both and suggested the cheaper one. He'll be measuring my body fat, and will show me how to use it "right". For $10 we'll see how it works. Also, in in book "Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle" Tom Venuto recommends the Accu-Measure calipers.
