Bathroom scales are useless

So ignore the bathroom scale. It is not useful for telling you how successful you are in losing body fat. I don’t use one at all. The only measure you should use is a “fat scale” or a caliper. A caliper is the best way to measure body fat. Body fat calipers measure the thickness of body fat in key locations around your body. For men, one location is on the upper pectoral area, another is the midsection and the third is on the top of the quadriceps of the leg. For women it’s the back of the arm, the midsection and along the hip.

However, you’ve got to learn how to use a caliper correctly if you want it to be an accurate indicator of fat loss success. I just mention it as a tool for people who are really serious about losing fat. People who use bathroom scales to figure out how much weight they’ve lost are just playing a silly game of deception — the bathroom scale is useless. I mean, you could lose bone mass and you’d still look like you were having lots of progress on the bathroom scale.

How do you lose bone mass? Easy: you stop engaging in exercise, stop walking, stop running. If you do all that (which I’m not recommending, by the way), then you would start to lose bone mineral density, and that would be reflected as weight loss. When you say you want to lose weight, be careful what you ask for. Your body has a number of ways to lose weight that have nothing whatsoever to do with losing body fat or enhancing your overall state of health.
