I have an amazing scale. It’s more than just a scale—it’s a Body Composition Monitor by Omron (Model HBF-500). Not only does it measure weight (very accurately, I might add!), it also gives you your:

It has a memory function that can store up to 4 different people’s profiles, and saves data for each person for a current 90-day period.

I bought this scale specifically so I could track my body fat levels during the HCG diet. Rapid weight loss, at least how I understand it, not only involves losing fat, but also lean muscle. I want to find out whether HCG makes good on its claims of reducing just body fat.

Of course, I’m sure that my daily results will vary a bit—body fat percentage testing via bioelectrical impedance isn’t always 100% correct. But it will give me a good estimation of what my body fat results are, and allow me to calculate my Lean Body Mass Index.
