Tracking Body Fat, Not Just Weight...

It would be great if MFP would allow for tracking Body Fat Percentage in the progress section instead of just weight and measurements.

    On the Web version, navigate to My Home > Check-In > Track Additional Measurements
    In the Add Another Measurement field, type in a descriptive name, such as "Body Fat Percentage" and click Add Measurement.

    The biggest issue with tracking bf% is accurately measuring it.

    I have a bathroom scale that reads it but I don't really know how accurate it is overall....and I have calipers but I can't seem to get anything solid there either. I guess it will be fat, less fat, lean and using the mirror haha

    True .. but how many of us have one of those in our bathroom? The electrical impedance systems are in accurate, calipers can be good if the person wielding them knows what they're doing ... beyond that ...
