To save everyone a bunch of calculations, I've made determining BMI as easy as looking at the chart in Appendix 1. All you need to know is your height and scale weight. Since I know that many of my readers are probably used to the metric system, I've included both metric (weight in kilograms, height in meters) and American (weight in pounds, height in feet and inches) values. Simply cross-
reference your weight and height and find your BMI on the table. If you fall in-between values, just pick the middle value. Once again, we're not concerned with exacting accuracy, just a general idea. Once you've determined your BMI, use table 2 in Appendix 1 to get a rough estimate of your bodyfat percentage.
