P.S. I have another BodPod test from October 25, 2006 floating around my apartment somewhere! Once I find it, I'll put that one up as well.

P.S.S. See you again real soon Shredders!

Hey Adam,

I'm interested to here your views on the Bodpod. I have read many articles about body fat testing and there have been quite a few studies to assess which is mot accurate and reliable. One of the most recent I saw used a group over 80 people and they compared, hydrostatic weighing (gold standard) with skin fold testing and then the Bodpod. They found that in most cases the bodpod added around 2% BF to people and in the leaner people it was sometimes as much as 3%.

Have you had any comparisons done?

Hi Andrew, I haven't had any comparisons done against the BodPod. I am thinking about an "X-ray" bodyfat test but I am concerned about the radiation.

You may be right about the BodPod, a few people have commented that Day 83 (mission 1) looked to be at least under 10% BF.

What about the gold standard, hydrostatic weighing, no where near you that could do that?

Andrew said...

Hey Michael,

I will have another go...still wouldn't work so here goes

Man the changes in your pics are fantastic, keep going.

I can testify to the re-feed method. I founf it worked great with some fantastic results for about 4 weeks. Then the body started to adapt to it. So in my experience I would use it for around 4 weeks or until the results start to tail off and then switch for a couple of weeks and then go back.

Let us know how you get on.

Take care,
