|Innerscan - You are what you eat |
Our revolutionary new InnerScan range provides information never before available from a consumer scale. Anyone who is serious about improving their total health and fitness will be able to see their personal progress. The monitors use Bioelectric Impedance Analysis (BIA) to monitor multiple components of overall health. The results are analyzed along with gender, age, height and weight for the most accurate and comprehensive at-home reading ever available. Measurements include Weight, Body Fat %, Body Water %, Basal Metabolic Rate, Metabolic Age, Bone Mass, Muscle Mass, Physique Rating, and exclusive to Tanita Visceral Fat Rating.
The Innerscan range of monitors are covered by a 3-year guarantee and include batteries and full instructions.
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.

To truly understand your inner health you should monitor your body composition.
The You Are What You Eat body composition monitor uses the latest Tanita Bio-electrical impedance analysis (BIA) technology to provide vital information about your body. This personalised information can be used to accurately track the impact of your diet and fitness programme over time helping you keep focused and motivated in achieving your healthy lifestyle.
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

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.
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.

Really happy with these.
Purchased many months ago, they look good and are very easy to use.
Battery seems to last very well, too.
