Can anyone recommend a product or method they use to measure & track their body fat percentage? I have a body fat caliper but it's pretty hard to try and take the measurements myself. Thanks!

I have a withings.com scale. It uses impedance to gauge bf%, not perfect as an absolute number, but as a trend indicator I'm happy with it. Ray Maker over at dcrainmaker.com did a pretty extensive 3 part review of bodpod vs various impedance bf... (more)

Obviously, the BMI calculation is far from perfect. Generally though, where would you guys put the ideal BMI of healthy/active men and women? Just wondering if you guys have any thoughts on this.

My thought is that it's a calculation that isn't worth terribly much. As such, I do not believe that there is a BMI number that can be cited as "ideal." Just my opinion, of... (more)

Think liquid calories. Dairy can help when needing to add weight.

Paleo lifestyle challenges a lot of CW, especially on diet and fitness regimen. That understood, is BMI still a valid rubric, or are there better ways to understand ratios of bone, muscle, and fat when wanting to improve fitness?

From what I understand , if you eliminate saturated fat and replace it with PUFA for a few weeks your numbers will look good. You may trigger a lot of inflammation and be far worse off, but you numbers will look good to insurance buffoons.

I would suggest that you wait until a more stable period in your life (like after your CPA exam) to make major diet changes. But yes, PALEO (and all that it entails - low-carb or otherwise) is appropriate for your weight and height. :)
