Body Composition Method (Ronak)

I prefer the skin fold method to measure the body composition. It might not be as accurate and reliable as other measurement but it still has a region of error or reliability that can be ignored and still get a good measurement. For example, more accurate would give reading up to 5-6 decimal place but for normal people that accurate reading is not required. Plus, it is relatively cheap and can be done at home which is good for people who want to keep track of their body composition regularly so they do not have to go anywhere. Also, the tools necessary are only a measurement tape and a skin fold caliper which are also cheap and easily and readily available. Skin fold is a good and reliable technique
