Vasculinity is so often mistaken for being leaner than you truly are also.
A 3 point pinch/skin fold test is just as in accurate as the electronic hand held or stand ons.
Time of day and what you have eaten and drank up to test can also throw it way off.
Best free and most accurate, general test, is the 7 point skin fold, right after you wake up, before you eat or drink anything.
Its still off a little, but if
you track your changes and keep doing it the same
and the way I mentioned, a change will be a change no matter what.
If you check the mail the same time every day only the amount of mail you get will change correct?
Think of your nutrition as the mail man and the amount of mail you get your body fat.
I have a 7 piont on my site I have found to work very well.
