Look for a BMI chart. It should have weight on one side and height on the other with BMI in the middle.

you didn't lose any body fat or muscle, most likely you sweat out half a gallon of water and didn't drink enough to make up for it, resulting in a weight loss of approx 5lbs.... water intake/loss can mess with your weight alot if your not consistent which how much you drink.

pshhhh-lost 3 pounds in 20 minutes. not in a sauna tho.

believe me its possible
No, I can believe 3 pounds in 20 minutes. I just don't see how you can loose 5 pounds in a suana unless you are in there for a long time.

according to the body mass index, i am legally fat, when in reality my current bf% is around 10%. that there tells you bmi doesnt work. online calculators are essentially the same thing so they dont work either

http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=214711 <-- this thread from bodybuilding.com has pictures of people at various bodyfat percentages... should show you everything you need to know

its more than possible. a lot of fighters who have to cut like 20 pounds for a fight will sit in a sauna for a few hours, lose more than enough water weight, then weigh in. its not exactly healthy, but its a good way to fight someone a lot smaller than you

buy a skin kaliper those websites dont work. the most effiecient way is to do a dunk test or something where you go in a pool and they do tests but a skin kaliper is much cheaper

keep in mind skin calipers arent very accurate, and usually read a few percentages too low

an yea, andything after ripped looks pretty gross :dodgy:
