How many of us don't believe what the bathroom scales tell us?
You may step onto them gingerly or jump onto them quickly to take them by surprise.Or heaven forbid stand on one leg.
You try various methods until you find a reading more to your liking.

With the Tanita Body Fat Monitor one cannot get away with such antics,
as it is a precision digital scale that can record weight in Pounds
Kilograms or British Stones and Pounds.

To turn the unit on you don't have to bend down and twiddle any knobs.
You just use your toe to tap the weight only key on the corner of the platform.
You have to step onto the measuring platform within about 30 seconds
as the power shuts off automatically,just tap it with your toe again.
Now you get an accurate reading of your weight.

Yes you say you can get this with any Digital Scale but look again
there's more.

The Tanita UltimateScales can be used as a Fat Monitor.
Simply enter some personal data such as Adult or Child and Male or Female
then enter your height.

Make sure that the soles of your feet are clean and dry,then step onto the footpad design and a safe low level electrical signal is sent
through the body to determine your body fat.
I promise you wont feel a thing.

The most accurate reading will be recorded in the evening.
Don't get too obsessive about this as you only need to check your
body fat about every month or so.

The Body Fat Monitor is not designed for anyone who does intense
physical activity of at least 10 hours per week.

An unreliable reading may be obtained for Adults seventy years or older.

Persons undergoing Dialysis,anyone suffering from Oedema or if fitted
with a Pacemaker,should not use this monitor.

Four A A batteries are needed. These will last about a year because
of the automatic power switch off.

Full instructions with Graphs showing Healthy Body Fat Range.
Nutritional hints are included.

The reason i bought the Tanita Body Fat Monitor was that since i left Slimming World i needed to keep an accurate check on my weight.

The price i paid for this nifty device was £38.99.
This was Todays Special Value on Q.V.C

This may seem expensive but bear in mind you are getting two products
in one.
My last Scales were made by Salter with a dial,completely unreliable
yet they cost me £36.99

So no more Bathroom antics for me!!
