My wife just got me one of those digital scales with the electrodes to supposedly measure bodyfat percentage. Now I readily admit I’m not as lean as I used to be but this thing put me at 27% bodyfat. I weigh about 180 lbs and (according to the scale) that means that I’m carrying around 48 lbs of fat. I think I’d know that if it were true. I mean, my arms and legs are still lean and my back is fairly defined.
Anyway, my question is: does anybody have any personal experience with the accuracy of these digital scales and the bioimpedance analysis?
