The Doctors: How Accurate Are Body Fat Scales?
There are a large number of high-tech scales that promise to accurately measure your body fat. But just how accurate are these Bluetooth- and wifi-capable scales? The Doctors enlisted two women to undergo testing in a scale known as the Bod Pod to see how just how accurate at-home body fat scales are.
Later in the show it was revealed that for one woman, the Bod Pod was 7.5% lower than the at-home scale, which is a significant difference. For the other woman, her percentage was the same for both the Bod Pod and the at-home scale. After finding out the results, Dr Travis Stork suggested that you pay less attention to numbers and more attention to your overall health and feelings of wellness.
