1. What is The Body Fat E-Guide?
The Body Fat E-Guide is the complete e-book edition of The Body Fat Guide. This web page answers questions specifically about the e-book.

2. Does the e-book contain the same information as the printed book?
Yes. With just a few minor changes, the text, graphics and layout inside the e-book are generally identical to that contained in the printed edition of The Body Fat GuideView the new cover for the e-book here. The main difference is that the e-book uses Energy Balance Calculators instead of Body Composition Tables. The e-book also contains Body Fat Wizards for males and females, which you run  like a software application.

3. What do the Energy Balance Calculators and Body Fat Wizards do?
The calculators show changes in your body fat and muscle levels that the scale alone can't reveal. Just type your weight in pounds and your waist size in inches into the calculator. (You can use a decimal point to indicate smaller units of measurement, like halve-pounds, quarter-pounds, eighths-of-an-inch, etc.).

The calculators also show the net difference between the calories you eat and burn. This information is essential to manage your weight properly! There are separate calculators for men and women. View this Energy Balance Calculator demo
