    So who actually knows their body fat percentage? Top athletes like Marvin Harrison have less than 1% body fat.

    I don't know mine off hand but I never had it measured. If you know your body fat % tell us how you went about finding out or how you did it.

    I've never actually taken the "official" test, but I think I'm about 29% (yeah, I know that's bad, I could be wrong).

    The way you find out is to use one of the quick calculators online, or actually go into a doctor or nutritionist and they take you measurments and give you a very exact percentage.

    Theres no way your 29% there was this morbidly obese kid at our school that was like 25% and he was like 400 lbs.

    Most men are in the teens while women can be in the 20s

    The only time I ever took a test was back in the 7th grade, and it turned out to be 11.something% less than 1% is like your body not being able to contain heat on its own =/

    I doubt it is less than 1%. Maybe, and probably, I am wrong but I heard it is very unhealthy to have less than x% body fat. Can someone fill in the x? I forgot the number.

    Like I said, the internet calculators are unreliable because that's what it said mine was.

    Your Results
    You have 3.5% body fat.
    You have 6.4 Pounds of fat and 176.6 Pounds of lean (muscle, bone, body water).


    I highly doubt that mine is that low, but I doubt it's too far off. Internet ones are accurate only if you know your waist size, hip circumference,ect.
