    I'm not finding anything on specifically "inferred" body fat testing. Are you talking about bio-electrical impedence testing? That's about the only thing I could find relating to it.

    from dictionary.com

    In-fer:
    1) To conclude from evidence or premises.
    2) To reason from circumstance; surmise: "We can infer that his motive in publishing the diary was less than honorable."

    In really just sounds like they are going to make an educated guess based off your height, weight and a few measurements.

    Nothing is as accurate as water submersion or really that close. Calipers usually fall behind that and then the bio-electrical thingy. How much does it cost to get it done? I'd be interested in knowing exactly how they do the testing.

    its weird i asked about it today...wasnt quite thinking when it came to spelling but yes infrared... but what he said afterwards was he has a briefcase and hooks up a bunch of things to you which Im guessing is probably bio electrical that you are referring to.
