Body Tracker: Body Composition
Body Tracker is remarkably easy to use, even if you have no prior experience calculating your body fat percentage. All you need is a tape measure, fat caliper, or body fat scale, and Body Tracker will show you exactly how to take your measurements. Just enter your measurements, and Body Tracker will do all the calculations for you - and save your results.
Body Tracker gives you a choice of four methods to calculate your body fat percentage.
Body Tracker provides a detailed diagram showing exactly how to calculate your body fat percentage with a fat caliper or tape measure. Just click on the "how to" button, and you will see a diagram showing the exact locations to measure with your body fat caliper. If you're using a tape measure, Body Tracker explains how to take those measurements. Even if you've never done it before, Body Tracker will explain how to accurately and easily calculate your own body fat percentage.
Compare your measurements to your last calculation. Body Tracker displays the last recorded measurements so you can quickly and easily see how the measurements compare.
Knowing your body fat percentage is critical when trying to improve your body composition. For example, if you have 50 pounds in fat and 150 pounds in lean body weight, then your total body weight is 200 pounds. If you lose 2 pounds in fat and gain 3 pounds in muscle, now you weigh 201 pounds. By using a regular scale, you might think you gained fat. But with Body Tracker you will know you lost fat and gained muscle. Tracking body fat is the best way to improve your body composition.
After entering your measurements, Body Tracker will calculate your body fat percentage, how many pounds/kilograms of your body is fat, how many pounds/kilograms of your body is lean body weight, and how many pounds/kilograms of fat you need to lose to reach your desired body fat percentage. In addition, Body Tracker composition screen has a body fat percentage chart to help you determine what your body fat percentage means to you. Once you have completed the body composition page you can save your recordings and graph the results or show a complete history of your body composition.
