    Is anyone able to advise which is the most accurate between Parrillo, Jackson Pollock and Durnin Womersley body fat calculations compared with hydrostatic weighing or the BodPod, as based on my last caliper measures in the Gym in October last year my body fat levels ranged between 11.35% and 17.37%

    Parrillo - 11.37%

    JP 3 site - 11.35%
    JP 4 site - 13.76%
    JP 7 site - 12.16%

    DW - 17.37%

    I used the jp3 method and it gave me 7%ish. The mirror method gave 9-10.

    Mick, who cares? All that matters is how you look in the mirror versus how you want to look and how you feel healthwise. The rest is all gibberish and they are probably all wrong and most are not even consistent.
