    Nutri-Shop Scale Accuracy???

    I was in Nutrishop today and they have a scale that "supposedly measures not only weight but body fat, muscle mass, how much water you're carrying, and how many calories your body burns per day. I asked the owner of the store how accurate it was and he said that it's 98% accurate.

    Anyways, I get on the scale and my weight is 201.8 which is accurate. The kicker though is that it says I'm 20% body fat. I will post a picture of myself tomorrow as I know I'm not anywhere near 20%. I have visible abs and would guess I'm around 12%. Just curious if anyone has any experience with this scale or not?

    I know the only real way to get an accurate body fat reading is with a full body scan like the Dexa scan.

    I don't see how that thing could be worth the metal it's made of.

    I figure I'm around 14% right now. I was shocked and disappointed to see 20% on that scan. I start cutting in April so it will be interesting to seee what the scale says as I get into single digits. I wonder if it can't get an accurate because I have so much muscle? It did state that my biceps are 55% larger than the average male so that is a god thing. Haha
