  • New scale wow

    I just bought a new scale its by Nokia body plus10
    its pretty cool for what it does and it was only 100.
    Wifi and blue tooth links to there cloud and your phone.
    I have it configured part way and will read into it more.
    I weighed myself a few times yesterday.
    It tells you a few things
    weight
    water percentage
    bone mass
    BMI
    and a few others.
    My weight was 203
    my fat percentage is about 30 % holy shit I am fat.
    My water was 46%.
    Regarding the water percentage and now knowing I am fat really fat what does the 46 % water mean. ??
    My fat seems to be right in the middle lol
    anyway being fat is the least of my health issues but what is up with the water percentage. Any ideas
    thanks in advance

    Good morning.
    I have done some reading on water % for my age a non athlete
    it seems I am low as charts seem to go from 50 to 65
    %. I don't think I can drink anymore fluids as I have to find bathrooms where ever I go. Does anyone have any input on this. I do take a pressure pill but it's. Not a diaretic type. As for my fat % well that does mean I am
    fat lol.
    Any help is much appreciated
    thanks in advance

      Those percentages are ideal targets Al but we're not all built the same nor do we share lifestyles. Muscle tissue has a lot more water than fat hence your lower that 50% water, it goes back to your BMI. You can get water from fruits & vegetables too but IME the muscle mass is main driving factor behind that number too.

        Actually using these devices that use bioimpedance to measure fat-in other words fat offers higher resistance to a low level current than muscle-one's water content should be around 70% of your weight. Otherwise you are dehydrated. Hydration is not dependent on muscle since I can show you ladies with lower muscle mass and show proper hydration.

        Usually can get lean tissue mass, fat mass and water weight. Now if you are dehydrated, that will affect the readings. That's why should never workout before taking a reading an ideally allow 24 hours between working out and using bioimpedance.

        It's ok as far as accuracy goes. DEXA or another new technique are the Gold standard for measuring body fat. Oh and anyone who says like a body builder they are 3% bodyfat are full of it. More like 8%.

          Your fat mass is only relatable to the technique used for measurement. In other words, can't compare results between bioimpedance and skin calipers. Or skin calipers and hydrostatic weighing.

          You need to go by the chart supplied and number depends upon age, sex and height.

          Sounds like you are dehydrated. Did you measure after working out? Or within 24 hrs of working out?

            Good morning
            thanks for taking the time to reply.
            No I did not work out prior I just used it now
            weight 203
            fat 32
            water 47
            my water intake is 2 32 oz juices before 8 am
            then 2 16 oz bottles of water and a 32 oz smoothie
            two or more glasses of water woth dinner.
            I don't typically eat out during the day no breakfast
            my protien shake , juices and smoothies are my meals
            and diner is a meal. Plenty of live uncooked veggies
            and a meat and startch. Proteins are not just meat but also cheese. Honestly I have to find bathrooms everywhere I go lol. I do cut back on water in evenings to sleep through the night.
            Based on my stats am I dehydrated ? And what percentage should I be ? How low am I
            thanks in advance for your help
