Body Fat % Testing: BioElectrical Impedance Method

Weight Loss Tip: While it is a good idea to get some fruit in your diet, make sure that you get the fruit from eating actual fruit and not from drinking fruit juices. Most fruit juices contain a lot of added sugar so it is not as healthy for you as eating fresh fruit.

Fitness professional Max Wettstein shows you how to perform a body composition or body fat % test at home using a bio-electrical impedance scale. Not as accurate as hydro-static testing which he will demonstrate next, but very useful from tracking progress at home. Full disclosure by Max Wettstein of his own body fat %!




  1. i have 1 horrible scale it says im 39%bf at 77kg 170lbs funny thing is i could see some abs at 70kg which is impossible at 32% i was scared.lol

  2. u’re right. i know the bad fat is the reason that stopping 6 pack coming outside even we work out well. Listen to this Do you know about the 7 odd foods that kill belly fat if you don’t know about them you must see this. have a look here bit.ly/17c7IJJ?=yujmv

  3. I have just been watching some videos about bio impedance calculators and it brought me onto watching this one. Id like to hear more about what you do, do you have any online groups or pages I can follow.

  4. Those things are junk. Most of the time, it can’t detect anything but when it does, 4-5%.

  5. I think this is accurate. I think the reason that you look more like 7-8% is because of water in the skin. It would make sense if you take something like creatine for that to happen. The machine will also give a lower reading if you are extra hydrated and a higher reading if you are dehydrated.
