      IIFYM question..

      No it isn't.

      Search this site and you'll see how "accurate" they are.

      IIFYM question..

      agreed, plus the problem with your cake and brownies is your macro count. How do you know? Do you know the exact measure of all ingredients? Sugar free vs sugar, stuff like that? The exact measure if each slice? You may think you ate getting a certain number of carbs and are actually getting twice that amount. You really don't know. You may have ended up on a calorie surplus instead of a deficit

      IIFYM question..

      I'm pretty sure those are the most inaccurate ways to estimate your body fat (aside from blind guessing if you don't have experience in doing it).

      Calipers are more accurate if you know how to use them.

      IIFYM question..

      Why are bio-impedance machines unreliable?

      They might not be accurate.. but my gut's bigger from the last 3 weeks. I also take monthly pictures. Had to take it early cause of my results..

      • 1/2 cup olive oil: 1046kcal
      • 1 cup white sugar: 851.25cal (0p/227c/0f)
      • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract:12cal (0p/1c/0f)
      • 2 eggs:142kcal
      • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour: 467kcal
      • 83g/2.67oz unsweetened cocoa powder: 333.2kcal
      • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
      • 1/4 teaspoon salt
      • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts: 1464kcal

      478.605 per piece.. (9x9 pan)

      I hit my macros from other meals..

      My body's covered with loose skin.. won't that affect the results I get from the callipers?
