Probably a dumb question but............
Up to now I have never had my BF measured. I was thinking of getting one of those scales that measure weight and BF and was wondering if they are reliable.

:help:

It's made by Tanita. You can find them at tanita.com

I don't think that they're very accurate.

A tanita scale measured me at 18% BF as "athlete" and 28% BF as "non athlete"

2 different people at the gym gave me pinch tests and measured me at 23% then 28% and then the EST hand held fat tester measured me at 21%.

Now I just measure myself and as long as my stomach is getting smaller, I assume I'm losing body fat.

the scale tells you the following:

1. your weight
2. whether you have lost fat (compared to previous measurements)

nothing else. the choice is yours.
