Avoiding the Body Fat Bounce Effect

By July 24, 2018August 13th, 2018No Comments

What is the Body Fat Bounce Effect?

Imagine a patient in your office for a weigh-in after two weeks of strict adherence to a weight-loss program. She’s exercised, eaten well, feels great, and has clearly reduced fat across her body. When you perform a body composition analysis to compare to her baseline, the device reports a sharp increase in body fat despite her significant weight loss. What happened? This is the body fat bounce effect – the frequent ups and downs of body fat values reported by many bio-impedance body composition scales when their lists of testing requirements are not met. Dehydration, menstruation, or even a recent bathroom visit can invalidate the results, leading invariably to patient confusion and disappointment.
