BMI vs. Body Fat: That's a tricky question. A conventional aspect would be to check your body mass index (weight in kg over square of your height in meter), google it and you'll find calculators online. Then bmi between 20-25 is normal(ideally 22-23). I go more for a healthy body fat, measured using bioimpedance or underwater weight or bone scan, normal for female 18-26, men 14-18, athletes lower. ...Read more
Looks & feels right: The whole business of "ideal weights" is based on old insurance tables that have little to do with individual situations.

BMI and body fat: There are two ways. The more traditional way is to calculate your body mass index (check at wellesleymd.Com).

A general rule...: To burn 1 pound a week you'd have to have a caloric deficit of 500 calories a day. 2 pounds a week 1000 calories a day. You could do this all through diet, or better by combining some from diet restriction and some through burning off calories through exercise- the more you burn off through exercise the less calories you'll need to restrict from your diet. ...Read more
Calculate: Look up what your ideal body weight is. Subtract your ideal body weight from your original weight. That number is the denominator representing your total excess weight. The numerator is the amount of weight you have actually lost. So if your excess weight was 50 lbs and you have lost 20 lbs, you have lost 20/50=40% of excess body weight. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Is there a way to calculate what percent of your body weight is muscle and which is fat? I ask because it is said that muscle weighs more than fat.
