Q: Why do I get different readings when I change the gender or height information?
A: At this time, there is no absolute measurement of body fat other than an autopsy. Other body fat measurement methods (. Calipers, Underwater Weighing, BIA, etc.) will indirectly measure body fat. In order to determine body fat, an estimate is made from known measurements. Tanita uses the variables: height, weight and impedance to determine body fat percentage. These variables are used in a highly researched, proprietary formula to make the body fat assessment. If any of the variables are changed, the resulting body fat reading will also change. By artificially altering your height or weight, you will also alter the resulting reading. Because of the physiological differences between men and women, the monitors must be calibrated for men differently than women. Women will receive an incorrect low reading on the male mode and men will receive an incorrect high reading on the female mode. To obtain accurate readings, it is imperative that one use the proper gender mode. It is recommended that one monitor their body fat once a week, average the results for the month and then compare monthly averages to determine if there is a gain or loss of body fat over time. By eating right, exercising and monitoring your body fat, you are making the right steps for a healthier life.

Baker was selected by the Milwaukee Bucks with the 8th overall pick out of the University of Hartford in the 1993 NBA Draft. After four seasons with the Bucks, he was traded to the Seattle SuperSonics. Baker’s first five seasons in the league were strong, making the All-Rookie team his first year and the All-Star team in his next four seasons. In his sixth year, the 1998-99 season, there was labor strife and a lockout, which led to a shortened season. Baker later admitted that his binge drinking began during that year. He saw his weight balloon to near 300 pounds, and his game suffered tremendously. He was never again an all-star and never approached the statistics he put up during his first five years. After four seasons with the SuperSonics, he was traded to the Boston Celtics.
