    I got a scale that you step on these little metal plates, and it measures your body fat. Is this accurate?

    Also, I'm at 20% body fat. I already watch what I eat and do some basic weight lifting. Would the best thing at this point to get to around 15% be cardio?

    yes they are accurate. You can step on them, and they automatically know your build, and what your caloric intake is, broken down.
