If those ARE being made, can there be other designs on them? I'm envisioning a tribal design or something . . . that would be cool.

Did you make those pants, if you did, you could probably start a hot new business. I would buy a pair.

Alrighty, I'd like to hire your photograpgher then because, unless those are old pics, there's no way you're at 32%. What is your height / weight??

BMI (Body Mass Index) is based on Ht/Wt and yours would be 26.6 (assuming I understood you to be 5'5" and 160lbs?- btw- you hide that 160 pretty darn good)

BMI Calculator

Generally a BMI calculation is what those darn scales run off (simply a calculated formula- nothing tricky). Your number seems extremely high and looking at you I had to think the same. Maybe the scale is off or else you've entered a number into it wrong somehow (must have had to enter something at some point?)

While the BMI gives a general Fat % it doesn't show specific body areas, you need to have a caliper (or various tests) done for that.

p.s- BMI works the the general population but isn't entirely accurate for muscular people.

does it?

thought it is just one more of those creative numbers nutritionists and diet- and fitnessindustry torture people with :cry:

no weight/hight ratio can ever tell if someone is of slender built but obese or stocky and muscular

babylon converts 169 to 66,535 inch [another clash, at least I learned to live with ounces, pounds and gallons :cry:]

but I do not worry about weight too much,

if I did I'd go berserk, weight is a one way :cry:

Not sure what babylon is but 169 cm = 5' 6 9/16" or 5'7" (I deal with metric/english conversions all day long).

So your BMI is actually 25.1 fiep. BUT like lilgirl said BMI is known to misrepresent more muscular bods. Most professional athletes would be considered obese according to the BMI.

From your pics it certainly doesn't appear that you have 32% bodyfat. We have a Tanita scale that you program with your height, age & body type - male, female, athletic male, athletic female. It is interesting to program it for the different body types and see how you compare based on the type you input. I think my % swung from like 25% on the female mode to 10% on the athletic male mode.

I settled for athletic female mode and just use it to monitor ups & downs in %.

It's fairly accurate, I had our crazy ultramarathon (100 mile run) nutcase here at work test it out and he said it was with a % or 2 of what he figured he was.

Even the caliper method is fairly inaccurate. When I was playing college vball, they did a caliper measurement on our team. The results indicated that the Vball team was leaner than the gymanstics team but since the trainer didn't believe that could be true, he used a different formula for the different teams. Magically, the gymnasts were then leaner than the vball players.

I think the only true way to measure bodyfat % is the dunk tank method but I'm sure that has inaccuracies also.
