Comparison of predicted body fat percentage from anthropometric methods and from impedance in university students
British Journal of Nutrition
The objective of the present study was to compare different methods for evaluating body fat percentage (BF%) (anthropometric methods and bioelectrical impedance analysis) in university students. Subjects were 653 healthy students whose mean age, body height, body weight and BMI were 21·1 (SD 2·5) years, 166·0 (SD 8·4) cm, 62·8 (SD 11·0) kg and 22·7 (SD 3·1) kg/m 2 , respectively. Results showed that BMI is a poor predictor of body fatness since the sensitivity was low in comparison with thedoi:10.1079/bjn20041273 pmid:15533272 fatcat:zirlbksdvzb2xfvaix5a65rdae
