I just went there and plugged in all my measurements etc...and it says that I am 26.99%b.f....I'm actually about 15% with the callipered method.....need to get re-tested soon, but that was last measure...

[/ QUOTE ]

Okay - The same thing happened to me! I measured about 26% BF. Why would the tape measurements lie? I don't get it. I'm about 15% BF also. I thought I may just use it to keep track of measurement progress and I'm using Fitday.com to keep track of my nutrition breakdown and maybe I will be able to track lean body increases and bodyfat decreases.....that is my GOAL anyway!! LOL....I'm so frustrated right now. My Tanita BF scale is doing what Amy said....teling me that my weight is going up and my BF is going up and I'm working out harder than ever and training for a marathon also. I'm about to pull my hair out trying to figure out what to do to keep lean mass and lose BF and gain muscle definition AND meet my marathon goal.....this is NOT easy and I'm getting frustrated.

Hey Sage, don't get frustrated. I tried that site before and never went down from 27% [img]/forum/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img] No matter what, not even today [img]/forum/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] The method they use is not accurate. Just think of the fact that a bodybuilder's muscles add more size to arms, or calves, etc. Also a bodybuilder might weight more than a skinny person with more bf%. The site just take some "size", "weight" and "height" reference to make the calculation. I like their calorie counter section, though. They have all kind of combinations of foods.

There is a website called http://www.mybodycomp.com that will give you a free bodyfat analysis based on your measurements using a tape measure. Has anyone tried this and is it accurate? It is free to sign up and use.

Thanks for the great input, everyone! Now I'm just so disgusted people go around selling phony stuff! And try to make money from it!
