    My gf picked up this weight watchers scale that also measures bf%. I know these things aren't accurate, but I figured it would be useful to get on and see what it read. 22 fucking percent. I thought I was reading it wrong. I got on again and sure enough, 22%. WTF. :noes:

    You enter in your weight and height and then you step on the little sensor pads.

    I'm 5'8, 165, if that make a difference. Are these scales that far off? My gf got on and it seemed to read in the right ballpark, so I figured I'd give it a shot. I dunno what wrong with it, or if indeed I am a fat-ass.

    I just about threw the scale out the window after I got the reading.

    Are you sure it's not measuring body mass index (BMI)? It's impossible to measure bf% on a scale, but BMI doesn't have anything to do with fat.

    They are notoriously bad at guestimating BF% on very active/fit people. Which is why it might be in the ballpark for your girl but way off for you.

    On another note... christ your physique is amazing.

    If I had to guess I would put you at about 7-8%. I don't know about your lower body and also being lighter make the percents run a little higher even though you are very lean. So you could be as low as 6 and I wouldn't put you any higher than 9 unless you have a very strange body type.
