Does anyone know if home-quality bioelectrical impedance scales that measure your body fat percentage are accurate?
My old university's exercise science lab charges 10 bucks to have it done on theirs, I'm sure they have a version that costs $1500 though and is intended for commercial use...
Edit: Also meant to ask about DEXA(Dual X ray absorptiometry). This scan measures both body fat percentage and bone density. I'm interested in measuring bone density because of years of drinking 80% pepsi /virtually no water; and they say a lot of soda can leach the calcium out of your bones....so, does anyone know where you can do these scans, and how much they cost? I don't currently have insurance(declined over Lyme) and it will be a few months before I become eligible for my state's assigned risk health plan(and even then it may not pay for this).
