I did some playing around with the calculator on this site: http://www.healthcentral.com/cholesterol/home-body-fat-test-2774-143.html
It looks like 1" on the waist = 1% bf. I’m sure you’re right that as it goes up it increases but I didn’t see that from the calculator. I just kept everything the same and just changed to waist size.[/quote]
You’re right…I tried the calculations and it came out to that for me when I put in 32 and 33 inches. I’m surprised that the number was so low. Anyway, I don’t think the 1/4" = 2 lbs fully applies to me, because the other poster who said that was 6’1" and I’m 5’6".
Anyway, I guess I haven’t put on as much fat as I originally thought. Last week I went out and bought new clothes. Medium use to fit me, but it’s pretty tight on me now…I’m happy about that since it shows I’m growing. I can only wear large now. If my new pants start getting too tight around the waist I’ll go into a cutting phase. That’s my plan.
