      It is very expensive. Being poor doesn't make you a bitch, at least not in any legitimate sense.

      I just did a Dexa. It was $99 for 2 scans. One now and a future scan sometime within the next 12 months. So $50/ea

      Congrats. Your results now are about equivalent accuracy to a modern bioimpedance scale you can buy for about the same price as one of those scans.

        >Your results now are about equivalent accuracy to a modern bioimpedance scale
        A 20$ amazon bio scale isn't going to give you accurate results
        >UHHH HERE'S THIS 90$ SCALE INSTEAD ANON
        At that point you just bought the DEXA scan.

          Yes but you can actually use the bioimpedance scale again, track your progress, etc. All of these methods used to measure body fat have a problem with getting accuracy, even DEXA can be 3-4% off. People think that because they're paying money for it or doing all that gimmicky underwater shit it must be some Ultimate truth of body fat when that's not the case at all - save your money.

            seems like a more accurate resource than a scale and you can use it as a better barometer of progress if you do a cut or bulk. I'd argue that's objectively worth it to someone who is serious about said progress. nothing wrong with it

    If you need to check body fat, it's too high

    You have a trained technician position you on a piece of medical imaging equipment that uses precision X-rays beamed in at two different energy levels through your fat-ass with an incredibly precise sensor to measure the radiation of each set of X-rays and then the information is assembled via a computer with proprietary software into an image and readout of your body.

    In what bizarro world is $150 expensive for that? How much do you think you could make a DEXA machine for? How much do you think a DEXA machine costs?

    Fucking communists think they're entitled to all sorts of horseshit just because it exists.

    The navy's most recent (modernized) body fat study gave them a new formula to give them a closer to their DEXA scans. They didn't want to use it because it actually made majority of their reserves to fat and such.

    >%BF = 3.020 + 131.637 [log(umbilicus circumference)] + {-100.299 [log(height)]}
    New formula. (umbilicus is circumference around bellybutton)
    >%BF = 47.016 + 87.567 [log(circumference value)] + {-74.901 [log(height)]}
    Old navy formula for comparison.

        New one, no.
        You can do this yourself if you input into any scientific calculator. Even a monkey can press a matching buttons in a pattern, I'm sure you can too.
