Question by  Tbridges (27)

Where can I find a reliable body fat percentage chart?

I seem to find different answers on every chart.

The best body fat percentage charts are produced by medical doctors and registered dieticians. You can log onto websites from either or the health department website for your state.

There is no such thing as a reliable body fat percentage chart. Your height and weight cannot be extrapolated to your body fat percentage - to get this information you would have to talk to you doctor, who could help you arrange a procedure such as underwater weighing, which will give you more reliable information.

There are a number of online resources that offer an accurate body fat percentage chart. One thing to be careful of when doing an online search is to make sure that the site has medical backing. The best reliable source for this information would be from a medical physician or physical trainer.
