BODY FAT CALCULATOR



This body fat calculator uses the U.S. Navy Circumference Method where three/ four body measurements are fed into a fixed formula to estimate the percentage of your body that is made up of fat.

Body Fat Calculator Instructions

The measurements need to be accurate to within 0.5cm/ 0.25 inches and should be taken as follows:
  • Neck: taken below the larynx slightly sloping downward at the front
  • Waist: women at the smallest point; men at the level of the navel
  • Hips (women only): at the largest point

Average body fat percentages vary between men and women:

Body Fat Rating Scale Women Men
Essential Fat 10 – 13% 2 – 5 %
Lean (Athlete) 14 – 20% 6 – 13%
Average (Fitness) 21 – 24 % 14 – 17%
Acceptable 25 – 31% 18 – 25%
