What is my body fat percentage?

Most commercially available body fat monitors are very inaccurate. Industry standard Harpenden callipers cost £300 and they depend massively on the accuracy of the person taking the reading and also the mathematical formula used to arrive at a percentage (there are hundreds of different formulas, each of which will give you a different figure). So imagine how inaccurate a pair of £25 scales from Argos are! 

After over 10 years of measuring the body fat of myself and clients I have come to the conclusion that the easiest and most accurate method is comparing to this guide.
