Body Fat Calculator

March 16, 2014

A body fat calculator is the easiest way to estimate the amount of it that you have and whether you should use a fat burning product or a muscle building supplement if you are trying to get in shape. Natural weight loss supplements like Old School Labs Vintage Burn™ will help you shed unwanted pounds, while our Vintage Build™ bodybuilding supplement would be for someone who wants to gain lean muscle mass.

For your convenience, we have included an ideal body fat calculator here that will give you the results you need for the purposes of making an informed decision. After you have put in your measurements, you will get a fat percentage result. Based on this percentage, you will fall into one of three categories:

If you fall into the above average category on a body fat chart, you will want to get a fat burner such as Old School Labs Vintage Burn™ to preserve muscle while you lose weight. If you are in the lean category, you will probably want to get a premium bodybuilding supplement like Vintage Build™, also from Old School Labs™, in order to build more muscle mass.

Many people fall into the average category as well. In that case, taking a fat burner or muscle building supplement would depend upon your personal fitness goals. However, regardless of your weight, a body fat calculator is an easy way to measure yourself and get started in the right direction as to how you want to proceed with diet, exercise, and supplements.

Is A Body Fat Percentage Calculator Really Accurate?

Many people get upset the first time they measure their height and waistline and an online body fat calculator tells them they are above average when it comes to being fat. They may know it in their heart, but to be told by a computer app that you fall into the ‘above average’ category is still harsh.

The biggest complaint from critics about a body fat calculator or a body mass index calculator is that they do not take into account different body types. Since the main measurements go by your height, weight and waistline, this is true to some extent, but other organizations like the U.S. military use an army body fat calculator, and the American Medical Association uses similar guidelines to determine obesity, although their calculations do not necessarily have anything to do with body fat composition. In their eyes, if you are more than twenty pounds overweight for your height, then you are still obese, no matter what percentage body fat you have.

You Have The Results, Now What?

Now that you have simply confirmed your suspicions, what you need to do is plan a course of action.

The next computer app you should use is a calorie counting app. These are free online apps that will count how many calories you need during the day and how many you take in. It only takes about five minutes out of your day to use one, and you will be surprised with the results.

After this, you can plan an exercise program, but what you will also need is a natural nutritional supplement to speed up the process of gaining or losing weight. A supplement will also help you stick with your plans longer because you will see faster results. If you are overweight, you can use a natural supplement like Vintage Burn to burn fat while preserving muscle. If you feel like you are underweight, you can use Vintage Build to preserve existing muscle mass and add more lean muscle.
