I have a Tanita scale at home which indicates weight, bodyfat % and water %
Past few weeks I’ve been “testing” the bodyfat consistency of the scale and the results vary greatly. What I wonder is why this is and how do I find the “correct” number?
In my case, I’ve weighed and checked my BF% every morning after waking up and every night before going to bed for a week. My BF% is 2 to 4% lower when I check it at night as opposed to mornings. In my case this is 4lbs to 8 lbs of fat which is IMO physically impossible to lose over the course of a day or gain overnight.
Now I know, my main guidance to my progress is my mirror image, but it would be nice to know which my “true” BF% is. Also I keep wondering why this difference occurs.
Thanks in advance!
