    Fantastic weight loss scale



    This thing not only is a precision scale it also tells you your fat, water, muscle percentage. It appears to be highly accurate as I figured out my supposed fat percentage at various body weight. It has some sort of sensors/scanners that figure out your composition.

    I've heard scales which calculate body fat and such are as accurate as how smooth you thought you were in that black out but...

    I'll take you're word for it.

    Satisfaction in body composition should come from your numbers and the mirror.

    I'm 5' 11" and according to it I'd have 0% body fat @ 165lbs which sounds about right so I think its pretty accurate. I look/feel best around 200 but its nice to know the makeup of that as I age and start to exercise again. It's harder for me to lose nowadays so an accurate scale will help me mentally achieve it.

    If you had 0% body fat you would be dead or about to be?

    I got down to 190 about 5 years ago and looked kinda sickly. Probably only a prison camp could get a person down to 0%.

    No no. You can't deal with that low body fat. I am very sure that is death. Good looking is 12-8. 12% with muscle is surprisingly affective. 3% is timing pancakes right before a bodybuilding show for dehydration when you feel like youre gonna pass out before flexing in a thong.

    Yep. I want to get back into weightlifting so it'll be fun to watch the numbers as I lift and lose weight. The biggest I got that looked good was 220 after 5 years of serious bodybuilding. Cool thing is if you lift like a crazy person and do manual work to some of it stays with you.

    Yeah I'm with you. My experience is physical labor helps with maintenance for sure. (after you've reached something respectable).
