Why do I need to monitor my body fat?

We all need some body fat to be healthy. It's vital for basic body functions like regulating body temperature, storing vitamins and cushioning joints and organs.

But too much fat can damage your health and could put you at greater risk of developing serious medical conditions. Excess body fat is known to contribute to heart disease, high blood pressure, Type 2 diabetes mellitus and some forms of cancer.*

Visceral Fat (Abdominal Fat) is the fat that surrounds the vital organs on the trunk / stomach area of the body. High Visceral Fat levels increase the risk of high blood pressure, heart disease and type 2 diabetes. Lowering Visceral Fat levels can stabilise insulin action substantially, and reduce the risk of diabetes and other related illnesses.*2

Body fat is not always visible to the naked eye. You may have an acceptable weight and figure, but could still be carrying more body fat than you think.

Weight alone cannot distinguish between the pounds that come from body fat and those that come from lean body tissue, such as muscle and bone. By using a Tanita Body Fat / Body Composition Monitor, you can keep a regular check on your body fat levels, helping you stay within the healthy ranges.

Reducing excess body fat will help you improve your body shape and appearance. You'll feel better, look better and enjoy a better, fitter quality of life.

What is Visceral Fat?

Visceral Fat (Abdominal Fat) is the fat that surrounds the vital organs on the trunk / stomach area of the body. For a quick easy explanation - try tensing your tummy muscles, then pinch the fat by your belly button.  What you can pinch is subcutaneous fat (under the skin) it is not visceral fat.  Visceral fat is the fat you can't pinch - it is on the inside of your muscle wall.  Typically this type of fat is most often found in high levels in middle aged men (often mistakenly referred to as a beer belly).  Men have a genetic predisposition to accumulating fat in this way, whereas women are more likely to store fat subcutaneously.  (Subcutaneous fat has been shown to be associated with the nutrition required by a developing foetus, and for breast feeding).  High Visceral Fat levels increase the risk of high blood pressure, heart disease and type 2 diabetes. Lowering Visceral Fat levels can stabilise insulin action substantially, and reduce the risk of diabetes and other related illnesses

    I feel obliged to write a review as I was unsure whether to purchase this, due to no reviews available (not only on amazon but on the web). I have only used the scales for a week but am confident that the weight is 100% correct as I am comparing with my veteran salter digital scales which have never failed me. The body fat and muscle mass seem correct to me for my frame and weight (I am overweight) and they seem correct for my slim and fit husband also. I have not measured elsewhere to compare those results but I am planning to use them as averages over period of time to track my progress on my diet, so I am happy as long as they are consistent. There is a visceral fat measurement which I find a bit useless, as the healthy ranges is from 1-13 and unhealthy is above that - that really doesn't tell me much as I am 8, but don't feel very healthy at my current weight and size. I would also give the looks 5 star as well as the built and the display, which is very clear unlike other scales which have no light. I have started exercise as well as diet and will be back with an update, as I have some progress in my readings.

    Update: I have recently started using the scales again on a daily basis for a month now. A word of advice - it is already in the manual, but do not ignore it - make sure you find a place with hard surface for the scales. Although my carpet is very old and thin, I find that results can vary by 0.3 - 0.4 kg (this is an entire pound!) if taken on a carpet within minutes of each other. The scale is very sensitive so would give you the most correct results if on tiled or even better - laminate/hard wood flooring.

    I've been really impressed with these scales. They seem to give a nice consistent reading and they have a nice solid feel to them. It can store your details (Age, Height) so that it can give you a more comprehensive analysis, or you can just step on and get a basic weight (Guest Mode). Without having an official body fat measure to copare against I can't be 100% that it is accurate but it seems to be in the right ball park and the water percentage seems to be fairly representative of how dehydrated I am. If you are after scales that will give you more than just your weight then I would recommend these scales.

    I threw away my old scales when I realised on a BUPA Health check that they were 1/2 stone under my actual weight. On the health check they measured my fat to muscle ratio using electrodes all along my body. This machine comes up with exactly the same measurement to one decimal place. Accurate, easy to use, and not bad looking - Surprisingly this product exceeded my expectations. An excellent machine.

    I bought these scales because they were in the right price range, they looked significantly more stylish than most others and because Tanita are well established and seem to have a good reputation.

    They're easy to use, with instructions (in good English - a rarity!), well packaged and seemed to give reliable readings.

    Until they started saying I weighed 31kg (I definitely don't!), and saying "error" for no reason. This persisted beyond taking the batteries out etc; clearly they were on the fritz. Reading some reviews in more detail, it seemed like a lot of scales have been dying at 3 years too. I returned these to Amazon (who where very efficient and helpful despite the fact that it was a couple of weeks beyond their 30 day guarantee) and have just bought some Salter analyser scales... With a 15 year guarantee!

    In a nutshell: malfunctioned after just over a month of light use. Not impressed.

    Unlike some supposedly "intelligent" scales, these really do give lots of information: weight, body fat percentage, hydration percentage, muscle mass and visceral fat score. No scales can be wholly accurate, 100% of the time but using this product should help my family see trends over time. It's easy to read, easy to understand and easy to keep clean (not much in the way of fiddly bits!). You pay a little more but get excellent quality with traditional Japanese quality control and attention to detail. I can even understand the instructions!
