re: Inbody Tests
We have 2 InBody scanners at our wellness clinic but we may be getting a 3D body scanner which is supposedly more accurate.

The accuracy is all over with body scans


Well that isn't totally accurate. If your first scan tells you that you are 20% BF, then you go back in a month and it tells you that you are at 18% BF, its safe to assume you lost body fat. Same goes for SMM, water weight, etc. So if you are using the scans as progress reports, then they are a very helpful tool. Whether the first one gave you numbers that are slightly off one way or another, its still a great way to track your progress.

its so funny, people go the first time in the morning fasted after being strict for 10 days. then they go on a weekend bendor and go monday after work after eating 3 meals and scream.....its not accurate. Well no shite if you are doing that.

i tell people go friday mornings while fasted. Keeps the water weight consistant.

if you do that, its pretty accurate. I have compared them to dexa scans and they are damn close. of course now people are saying dexa is shite too for the same reasons.

re: Inbody Tests
I don't go first thing in the morning while fasted, but I go at the same time, on a Saturday, right after my morning workout (because the place doesn't open until 10am), and I eat the same exact thing for breakfast. I do it for consistency, because I agree, if you go one morning before breakfast or rehydrating after sleeping all night, then the next time you go in the evening, after having eaten all day, drank X amount of water, etc. the readings will not be consistent for obvious reasons.

I've been 4 times in the last two months, and after my first one, I had a pretty good idea what my readings were going to be based on my diet and lifting schedule since the previous one. And I was correct each time. Not spot on, but whether my number were going to improve or get worse.

BF went down again. Barely, but still down. Only lost 1.1lb of SMM. Down to 182lbs and some change. I have not been coming even close to my target for my daily macros or total calories. Its about time to get my diet really zeroed in so i can stop losing weight and try to build back up some of that SMM. Overall, for four weeks of not eating how i should, not terrible results. Ive maintained all of my strength throughout, so thats a plus.
