Good points here. Bioelectric impedance measurement of fat - which most of these cheaper tools use - is notoriously unreliable unless you do it very consistently at the same time of day with the same hydration status. In the end, it measures the resistance against the free flow of electricity in water (mostly in muscles, very little in fat) and estimates the fat content based on formulae that were derived from studies with better ways to measure body compartments. There are not only measurement errors, you would ideally also use different formulae for people with different body compositions. Most of these things have separate formulae for women and men but that's it. In order to calculate compartments for obese or severely obese people, you would need a data base that allows you to generate this estimation as precisely as possible, and such data bases don't exist - or are not used for these products to my knowledge. So, I would not give much about the actual numbers, and even less so the more you weigh, but as long as you measure under the same conditions every time and allow for a few % error, at least you can track change over time.
Guys, this is awesome, and I really think this is a great idea! Great job, Stefan!
This isn't me being showy, or arrogant/whathaveyou, but I'm cooking almost exclusively organic, and with as little processed ingredients as possible for my wife and I (even trying to use less crap for the guys at work). Simple foods and proper preparation results in healthy, great tasting meals. Check this out for some proof.
Just some food for thought....
Cigarettes and lots of vodka.
What's a little cancer and liver damage when you can buy 42 regular off the rack?
Lefty what's on the grill in the second picture
Pick a gimmick and get religious about it.
Gallon of water a day, no other beverages. High protein. Intermittent fasting. No sugar. Find at least one thing that you choose NEVER to cheat on. Something to change your mentality.
I'm 6'4" 195lb....was 230lb last fall. Want to drop a little more for my LA vacation, and then its bulking and heavy lifting all winter.

I kid you not, I lost 10lb in 6 days.
It is not so easy but once you get in the groove of it, it works well.
Eventually you can take one meal a day in juice and it will be great diet.
