A: Independent research at several major universities (including Columbia University in New York City) has confirmed that in clinical settings, the Tanita Body Fat Monitor is accurate within +/- 5 percentage of the institutional standard of body composition analysis–Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DEXA). It should be made clear that there is only one method of calculating body composition that is close to 100% accurate, and that is an autopsy. Tanita believes its method to be the most convenient and accessible to accurately predict body composition. Tanita’s Body Fat Monitor Series results are repeatable to within +/- 1 percent variation when used under consistent conditions.
"In November of 2012 I weighed 297 pounds--my diet was unhealthy, my energy level was low and my body was starting to show the effects of a lifetime of poor eating habits. I grew used to fat jokes, having to hold my breath to tie my shoes and feeling uncomfortable in small seats in theaters and stadiums. I expected people to avoid sitting next to me on airplanes. I resigned to the fact that I would probably not live a long life and that I would likely have health issues related to my weight for many years. Sadly and selfishlyJeff Tasker

Went to the dr for my 6 month checkup. She was laughing at me because I was talking all about our nutrition class and was so enthusiastic about it. Then when she checked my weight she squealed. I had lost 16 pounds since the last time she saw me. I am off my acid reflux meds now and in another 6 months she may reduce or eliminate a blood pressure med. Whoo Hoo! I know this sounds weird but I am not talking about this for a pat on the back. I amHub International CFR Participant
Started at 138.2 pounds. Wasn’t working out previously. Have started going to the gym for 1.5 hours and about 3-4 times a week. I’ve eaten more veggies during these 6 weeks than I have my entire life combined. I learned that I actually like salads, veggies, and backed fish. I realize I’ m probably going to still dabble in sweets and starches, but will over all be eating healthier day to day. Sadie Bryan Coppell, TXEating healthier day to day
