GUEST POST- Tanita BC533 Glass InnerScan Body Composition Monitor Review

As we near the beginning of summer 2012, getting in shape may be one of your top priorities. You may want to uncover sleek, sexy washboard abs to show off at the beach or pool. It will be important for you to eat healthy, engage in vigorous cardiovascular exercise and complete strength training in order to reach your fitness goals. Of course, you will be on your way to developing an amazing physique that will be the envy of all your friends. More importantly, you will be contributing to your overall health and mental well-being.

The combination of eating healthy and exercising can lower your risk of heart disease and diabetes. You will be able to maintain a healthy weight in this age of epidemic obesity that we live in. Exercising helps you sleep better and releases endorphins in the brain, which are "feel good" chemicals that help you reach a "natural high." According to the Harvard Public School of Health, 30 minutes of exercise for at least five days a week is sufficient to reap major health benefits.

On your journey to reaching your health and fitness goals, you will absolutely want to periodically monitor your progress. One of the best ways to do so is by purchasing the Tanita BC533 Glass InnerScan Body Composition Monitor, a sophisticated bathroom scale perfect for the serious health and fitness enthusiast. This compact scale will quickly become one of your closest companions.

The Tanita brand has rightfully stated that that weight-only scales are for "squares." The BC533 Glass InnerScan Body Composition Monitor utilizes advanced Bioelectric Impedance Analysis (BIA) technology that was formerly available only to medical professionals, health clubs and professional athletes. The BC533 is able to measure and determine a wide spectrum of health and fitness indicators, including weight, body fat percentage, body water percentage, muscle mass, physique rating, daily caloric intake requirements, metabolic age, bone mass and visceral fat rating. The scale features a very easy-to-read 2.3 inch LCD display.

You may think that all these measurements are unnecessary to you, but they are all very important and useful. Let's consider the usefulness of the muscle mass reading this scale provides. It is a well-known fact that muscle weighs more than fat. If you have started a strength training program, you will want to monitor your muscle mass, which is the amount of muscle in your body. You will surely gain some weight when strength training, but it will be in the form of muscle, not fat. This is why weight-only scales truly are for "squares." The physique rating is a rating of your body type; 1-9. The daily caloric intake is very useful in that it allows you to determine the number of calories you should consume daily to maintain your current weight.

The Tanita BC533 Glass InnerScan Body Composition Monitor is an excellent bathroom scale that can help you reach your health and fitness goals. You will become even more motivated over time when the scale displays indicators that are in your favor. Up to four unique profiles can be created on this scale, which makes this scale perfect for the entire family to use.
