I have lost 22 kgs in 3 years and more than 20cm out of my waist line, due to a combination of mild calorie restriction, intermittent fasting, ketogenic diet and longer fasts, including dry fasts. My current BMI is about 20, but my belly looks horrible, as there is some extra stubborn fat hanging just below the belly. Actually, I'm not sure of this is fat or just excess skin or a combination of both.
For the purpose of calculating body fat percentage, I know that the recommendation is to measure the waist at the smallest part of the belly, in my case just above the belly button; however according to this page:https://www.verywellfit.com/how-to-use-body-fat-percentage-calculator-3858855
Waist circumference. Take the measurement at the largest part of your belly, usually right at the level of your umbilicus (belly button).
which in my case is way down the belly button.
I'd like to know from fellow men what their strategy is when measuring their waist size.
