Sticky Thread Sticky: Don't look past the basics

From what I've been reading in this forum recently, most posters here are, for some reason, missing the basics of fat loss, and instead, are looking for some magic bullet, or worse, putting their faith in some TV or youtube guru, or some online 'trainer' who's only trying to scam their $$$. ...

Just how accurate is hydrostatic weighing?

So, I got a hydrostatic weigh-in done at my university this morning. The team performing the test (and everything I research online) assured me that it is quite accurate, second only to DEXA scans, within a 1-2% range. I was quite shocked when I saw my results, and have wondered if something caused...
