    Do you live near a major university? Most of them offer DEXA (which is the gold standard now, far better than underwater weighing) for a reasonable fee.

    Yeah, that's what DEXA does indeed appear to be.

    DEXA has many uses.

    Trust me I have one in my lab.

    All major university kinesiology programs are switching to DEXA for measuring LBM and adipose tissue and like i said before often offer the service for a very low fee.

    If you are unfamiliar with this you can get a quick intro here:

    An example of one of the programs I was speaking of:
