How can you measure your body fat fast and easy?

Lots of ways: A dexa scan can be used to give a very accurate measurement, costs about $100. There are fat calipers that can take measurements and the results are used to calculate a pretty good estimate. There are electric impedance devices that are easy to use, not always accurate or consistent. There is a submersion technique where your volume gets measured by dunking your whole body underwater. ...Read more

How can a personal scale measure body fat and muscle mass?

Scales: Digital scales purport to measure your body fat through a process called bia, or bioelectrical impedance analysis. Essentially, it clocks the speed that electricity travels through you. The scale runs a low-level electric current through your body, using your feet as positive and negative electrodes. The current encounters different levels of impedance, or resistance, from fat versus muscle. ...Read more
