  • Do not take measurements after physical activity or when you are overheated. The added fluid under the skin may increase skinfold thickness.
  • Always use the same Accu-Measure caliper, and take the readings at the same time of day, for consistent monitoring of body composition changes.
  • If you are female, avoid measuring during the menstrual cycle when there is significant ornoticeable weight gain.
  • Experience is necessary to consistently graspthe correct size skinfold in the correct location.Practice until you get consistent results.

    THE IDEAL WAY TO MEASURE BODY FAT USING THE ACCU-MEASURE® CALIPER

    Since the majority of fat on the body is located directly under the skin, a very effi cient and practical way to measure your body fat percentage is skinfold measurement - the scientific approach to the time-honored “pinch an inch” method and themost tried and trusted method of measuring body fat. The Accu-Measure caliper is designed to make this a very simple and accurate procedure that you can perform on yourself privately (or have someone perform for you, whichever you prefer).Although skinfold measurement is technically simple to learn and perform, take some time to familiarize yourself with the correct procedure.

    How to Take an Accurate Accu-Measure® Personal Body Fat Caliper Reading

    1. The site you will use for skinfold measurement is the suprailliac, which is located approximately one inch above the point of your right hipbone. To find the suprailliac, put your left index finger on the point of your right hipbone and move up one inch (see fi gure 1).
    2. Make sure the slide on the curved part of the Accu-Measure caliper is moved all theway to the right. Place the Accu-Measure caliper in your right hand.
    3. While standing, with your fi ngers about 2-3 inches apart, fi rmly grasp the suprailliacskinfold between the thumb and index finger of your left hand. Gently pull the skinfold away fromyour body. Pull the skin and underlying fat away from the muscle tissue (see figures 2 and 3).Note: If the site contains a large amount of fat, you will need to increase the distance betweenyour thumb and index fi nger in order to grasp and pull the fold. Be sure to grasp the skinfolddirectly on the skin - not through clothing.
    4. With the Accu-Measure in your right hand, place the Accu-Measure jaws over the skinfoldabout 1/4 of an inch from your left thumb and forefinger (see figures 4 and 5). The caliperheads should be halfway between the crest and base of the fold, right in the middle of the fold(see figure 4). The caliper must be perpendicular to the skinfold.
    5. While continuing to hold the skinfold with the left hand, press with the thumb where indicated on the Accu-Measure until you feel a slight “CLICK.” The measurement slide will automatically move across the measurement arm and stop at the correct reading. Immediately stop pinching when you feel and hear the “CLICK.”Release the jaws of the Accu-Measure and read and record your measurement to the nearest millimeter.Return the slide member to the far right starting position so it is in place for your next measurement.
    6. Once you have taken one reading, take another measurement. If the second reading is morethan 1mm apart from your fi rst reading, take another measurement, and record the reading when it becomes most consistent.
    7. Refer to the appropriate MALE or FEMALE Body Fat Measurement Chart to determine your body fat percentage at the intersection of your age and millimeter reading.

    Can Dairy Fat Curb Body Fat?

    Can Dairy Fat Curb Body Fat?

    Can Dairy Fat Curb Body Fat?: Main Image
    Full-fat dairy contains potentially "slimming" nutrients, which may help the body burn fat more efficiently while preserving muscle tissue

    When you reach for a glass of milk, should you choose skim? Is whole milk a guilty pleasure? For years, health experts have promoted lower-fat dairy as the healthier choice, but it's time to look at this issue anew.

    In a recent 12-year study of nearly 1,600 middle-aged Swedish men, those who ate the most full-fat dairy-think butter, whole milk, and whipping cream-were significantly less likely to develop "central obesity" than men opting for low-fat dairy. (Central obesity, fat in the mid-section, is considered more damaging to health than body fat carried elsewhere.)

    Studies on children mirror these findings, and in one of the larger analyses of the existing medical literature, 11 of 16 studies linked high-fat dairy consumption with lower likelihood of obesity markers. As Greg Miller, executive vice president of the National Dairy Council told NPR, "it's counterintuitive." But a closer look may help explain:

    • Full-fat dairy contains potentially "slimming" nutrients, including a naturally occurring fat called conjugated linoleic acid (CLA).
    • Some research suggests CLA provides metabolic benefits, helping the body burn fat more efficiently while preserving precious muscle tissue.
    • Further, fat is very satisfying; it stays with us longer than carbohydrates or protein, and may help us eat less at later meals and snacks.

    Does this mean people should ditch the skim milk and nonfat yogurt?

    That depends.

    • After a sweat session-be it your gym workout or your child's soccer match-the best way to replenish and repair muscles is to get protein and carbohydrates into the body quickly. Dietary fat slows carbohydrate and protein absorption, so in this case, skim is the way to go.
    • Since full-fat dairy contains potentially beneficial nutrients such as CLA, and may also help us eat less at later meals and snacks, when not concerned with "refueling" after exercise, full-fat dairy is a reasonable choice.
    • Remember, the original preference given to low-fat dairy arose from concern about saturated fat and risk of heart disease-and full-fat dairy contains plenty of saturated fat, which can raise cholesterol levels. So, many experts agree that people with high cholesterol should continue to go the low-fat route.
