The formula that the tool uses factors in age so you would notice a change in the numbers, but not a huge change. These devices are ok but really not accurate, there are too many things that can alter results. If you want a true reading you would need caliper test most gyms you can get a trainer to do this free or water immersion which can be costly. For your contest i would recomend tape measurements as an alternative hips waist, legs arms, Hope this helps and good luck with the contest.

Are green tea bags the same as ordinary tea?

Green tea is green tea... it shouldn't matter whether you use bags or loose tea. In fact, most green and black teas are made from the same tea leaves, only green tea isn't dried and aged as long. Good luck on your diet.

Has anyone used Apidex for weight loss? Any feedback on its effectiveness.

All the weight loss drugs are very individual - what works for one person might not work for another. Apidex jump starts weight loss by suppressing the appetite and speeding up the metabolism. It's usually used by people who are severely overweight. People usually take it for between 3-6 weeks and it must be taken under medical supervision.

Are there different types of fat burning supplements?

Yes, there are six different types of fat burning supplements:

Thermogenic fat burners- this is the most used type of fat burner. It consists of a combination of different ingredients, typically caffeine, synpherine, and yohimbe. People who use thermogenics feel lots of energy from all the stimulants. Because of the stress it puts on the nervous system, thermogenics should be cycled.

Appetite suppressants- this supplement usually consists Hoodia, which has been very effective in suppressing appetite.

Carb blockers- this supplement blocks the absorption of carbs in our body, which prevents our body from getting all those calories from carbs.

Thyroid regulators- these fat burners supply the two main substances that the thyroid produces, guggulsterone and forskolin. These substances help the body to increase metabolism and burn fat.

Fat blockers- these supplements are very similar to carb blockers, only they prevent fats from absorbing in the body. The main ingredient here is Chitosan.

Cortisol blockers- these supplements prevent the negative effects that cortisol causes the body (like fat gain).

When to use Athletice setting?

Hi Susan,

Unfortunately with those body comp scales too many things can affect the reading and are not really reliable. If she drank water or even took a shower/bath before it changes the results. But by chance does she have implants? I have them and read at 26% in either mode but actually with calipers i am 14%. i would use the normal mode majority of the time (athletic is someone who has low body fat or highly active) or just use calipers as it gives a more acurate number :)

BF% is wrong

Unfortunately, it's the scale, but it's not broken. It simply is telling you inaccurate information.
Some scales utilize Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) technology. BIA uses very low levels of electrical impulses running from one metal contact point/lead to another. Your body acts as the connector between the two contact points, thus completing the circuit. Not all scales use this means for calculating body fat percentage due to poor reliability and high fabrication costs.This method of measurement requires very large contact points, as well as clean and moist skin exposure. If you have dry/calluced feet, which is normal for most Americans, the sensors can not accurately measure due to skin resistance. Dry skin acts as a resistor to electrical impulse. Electricity passes through muscle and fat at different rates. However, its measurements may be thrown off by how hydrated you are and how much you've eaten; it may be too inaccurate for anything other than comparative use. Users are encouraged to establish a baseline measurement and repeat measurements under consistent conditions over time to detect changes.
Many less expensive models simply use a body-fat calculator to average your imputed height in inches, waist measurement in inches and the current weight measurement recorded in lbs. The scale compares your measurement with the ideal norms inputed during the manufactoring process, thus giving you a comparison vs.imputed norms. People who are very, very fit can get numbers 3 to 5 percent higher than their true percent body fat. Because they don't have a lot of fat inside their muscles(visceral fat), the simple tape measure calculation test cannot adjust as it should indicate.
Conversely, if a person is skinny but not fit, this body fat test may yield a number 3 to 5 percent lower than his or her true percent body fat. Though they look thin, unfit skinny people really have more than the usual amount of fat inside their muscles, which you can't see from the outside.
In either case, the scale is not necessary a measurement tool, due to high variables of test inaccuracy and interuser reliabilty; but, it is a good tool for comparing whether or not you are gaining/losing body fat.
If you would like a more accurate tool for simply measuring your body fat, you can pick up some pinch-calipers online for about the price of a scale. They come with an instructional pamphlet, very easy to use.
