When you are neutrally buoyant, you are displacing your weight in the liquid. The issues of volume and density are taken care of. As EINS said, it IS that simple.
200 lb fat slobs need bigger weight belts than 200 lb fit guys. But that is accounted for in the example by establishing neutrality going in.
Since your volume and density are constant, flatulatory changes excluded, the only thing you're adjusting for is the change in the liquid.
