Need other measures: B"sd this is not directly computable, but much can be made of these measurements - just published this http://www.hindawi.com/journals/crim/2016/1526175/ Body fat can be estimated with widely available bioelectric impedence, underwater weighing, skin calipers and some others. The gold standard is by total body DXA scan. Glad to discuss in detail
