Body fat calculator

Well I sure haven't, so I googled this online body fat calculator.

According to the Jackson/Pollock 7 Caliper Method (which seems pretty accurate), my body fat is 6.6%. My current weight is 64 kg (141 lbs), so theoretically I have about 1.9 kg (4.2 lbs) fat to lose.

So if I will get my weight down to 62.1 kg (137 lbs), it would mean a Body Mass Index of 19.0 (my current BMI is 19.5). I guess it would be risky to go any lower than that.
