Understanding Your Measurements

I’ve started a new series on my YouTube channel called “Summer Shredding”. I thought it would be a good idea to upgrade my scale with one that had all the bells and whistles to accurately track my progress. A few weeks ago, I picked up a new scale from Bed Bath & Beyond. The brand is Beurer and it measures EVERYTHING!!!

I had to program the scale before I could use it. It asked for my sex, age, and height. Honestly, I didn’t know what all the measurements meant. I took a picture of my results and did some research. I was happy to find out that for my age, weight and height my measurements were in line with where they should be.

Understanding Your Measurements

Below I have listed all of the measurements that my new scale measures and what they mean.

Body Weight: Is defined as the weight or mass of an organism.

Body Fat: Is the percentage of fat your body contains.

Body Water: Is the water content your body contains. The average adult contains 60% body water.

Muscle Percentage: Is the percentage of your body mass that is muscle.

Bone Mass: Is a amount of bone in the body.

Calorie Consumption: Also known as Active Metabolic Rate (AMR). It is the amount of energy (calories) required daily by the body in its active state.

Body Mass Index: Is measured by dividing your weight times the square of your height. This measurement is used to see if you are at a healthy weight.
