Tanita is on a mission to help people lead fitter healthier lives and that starts with thinking ‘body composition’ rather than weight loss or BMI.
Weight alone doesn’t necessarily give a clear indication of good health. Stepping on the scales can’t show the difference between kilos or pounds that come from body fat and those that come from lean body tissue like muscle and bone. In fact losing weight can actually make you fatter! Crash diets and no exercise make your body fat percentage go up even though your body weight is decreasing.
By focussing on improving your hydration, building muscle and healthy eating you will be on a path to long-term health rather than short-term weight loss.
Often, when you start a new fitness programme you don’t appear to be losing weight because exercising and healthy eating will mean that you are reducing body fat and replacing it with newly developed pounds of lean muscle tissue, which is denser and thus heavier than body fat.
It is tempting to step onto your scale as soon as you wake up, but we all dehydrate as we sleep and so you will not get accurate readings first thing in the morning. We recommend you measure before your evening meal and after emptying your bladder.
