21.5% FAT!



Yup. That's me. Over 1/5th of my body is blubber! They measured me. 166 pounds, 6ft1in and 37 pounds of fat. When David at Y Be Fit told me I said, "that's depressing" and he said, "you're good compared to most people". I don't want to be compared to "most people". So I'm going to get into shape! Lower my fat to body ratio, lower my bad cholesterol and triglycerides. I'll keep you posted.

I remember once measuring my body fat at the gym. It was one of those new calapers--electronic--I held it with both hands and it caluculated body fat based on electrolytes or somethig like that.

I came up with Zero. They guy adminstering it said--"you have no fat!".

Hmmm. I looked at him, glanced down to my stomach.
"Or", he said, "you have drunken a lot of water--that will throw this off too."

Drink a lot of water Kurt--it throws off the fat.

a fairly healthy ratio is 7-14% for men and 20-21% for women.
To measure me they put me in a space pod looking device,dressed only in biker shorts, shut the door and then I heard a pop and a sucking noise. Then they repeated the process again just to make sure.

Are you sure they weren't just trying to "beam you up", Scotty?

Hey what's a good ratio for pregnant women?

Pregnant women are above statistics, Jordan. Eat what you want and when you want it.
