Eat Smart scale showing body fat as much too low


Probably there's a build-up of skin oil from your feet that is preventing it from reading properly. Clean off the top of the scale with a cloth dampened in soapy water, then rinse wipe it with a cloth dampened in plain water, and dry it. Be careful not to dribble liquid into the scale.

Note: fat measurement by this method is difficult to do accurately and consistently, For best results, make sure you're properly hydrated at least ten minutes before measuring, and wash and dry the soles of your feet first.

What does BIA value of 38% mean?


The BIA is bioelectric impedance analysis or your body fat. BIA is the method used to determine your body fat, it sends a small electric pulse through your body and using formulas that account for the time it takes for the pulse to travel through water, muscle and fat. Remeber that this measurement can be affected by different variables such as water if you have taken a shower or drank a glass of water before being measured so it is not always acurate. To obtain a more accurate measurement I reccomend using it first thing in the morning before showering or eating/drinking when there is less chance of variables. Please let me know if you need further help :) Have a great day!

What do the three numbers represent? Weight is obvious, but "f" and then the last one?


http://www.conair.com/instruction_booklets/06AD15055%20IB%20TH313.pdf
I think this is the manual for the above mentioned product. Does it say f or BF? BF is % fat with in your body, although the techonolgy used is not too acturate, you can use it as a guide, to ensure the best possible acuracy be sure to use it at the same time of day preferably before drinking or bathing/showering. Usually first thing in the morning after you use the rest room is best. It uses electrical impedence to measure for the extra measurement features and these factors can skew the readings.

H20 would be water content, and

bone is bone denstiy which is important to keep take of espicially if you are an older female, or on medications that affect bone density. Although i am not sure how acurate the readings would be and highly reccomend if you are at risk for ostioparosis or any other diseases or on medications affecting bone desinties to check in with your doctor about testing and monitoring.

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.

How do I get body fat help?


The scales don't tell you the whole picture - your weight is less important than your percentage of body fat when it comes to appearance, fitness, and health. Tracking your percentage of body fat better shows how you are doing with diet and exercise than measuring weight. Remember that weight is measuring not only your fat, but also you muscles and your bones. If you did some extra work at the jym, your body weight might be effected (muscle tissue is heavier then fat tissue).
