Body Fat Scales
Santa brought a Tanita Body Fat Scale for Christmas. Does anyone have any experience or impressions of the accuracy or usefullness of this device?
My first readings (after proper programming) alarmed me a bit but after a few other family members tested I thought maybe this thing is for real.
I am 50 and have been cycling, working out for about 6 years. At the same time I have drastically changed my eating habits. In the past 6 years I have lost 40 lbs. So my readings show this:
Weight 199 lbs
Body Fat 14.7 % (Surprise)
Metabolic Age - 23 (huge Surprise)
Calories I can eat and maintain my current weight - 4,565 calories / day - WOW
So it is Christmas Day and I pigged out.
