Fancy Scales

Has anybody purchased one of those fancy scales to tell you what your fat % is doing? I ordered one but haven't received it yet, and am interested in how accurate it is compared to the one they have at the center.

Please let me know your experiences

Hello,

I had a fancy scale a few years ago. My experience was that it's not worth the money. Even the one's in the center aren't as accurate as say a Dexa machine. But there may have been some updates in technology since.

Came today, same day I had my analysis which showed I have 36% body fat. The fancy scale indicated 26%. Darn.

I don't know how, but the seller of the scale left a message on my machine and gave some advice....changing my height to 4 invhes shorter than i really am seems to make the scale correlate well with the mediweightloss scale, now they are nearly identical with regard to fat %

our clinic however is going through some overhauls. The M.D. Owner sold our clinic to focus on her other one, the new owner is not a physician, the new dr "didn't work out" so I saw a very nice bariatric general surgreon who use to own his own weight loss clinic but since he was a dr and not a business owner his clinic didn't survive, and he is only going to be here at this clinic for 2 more days. I really have not needed the appetite suppressants, so am thinking about quitting the clinic and just relying on the scale and vitamins taken orally. I really don't buy that injected vitamins do anything except convince people to rely on the clinic.
