So many times we jump on the scale to see how much we weigh but in reality we really want to know how much fat we gained or lost.  It is elusive to say the least.  But now we can track “our body fat”.

The new device is a process called Dual-Energy X-ray Absorptometry – or simply DXA for short. With this device you can actually see how your fat stores are doing or not doing.  The test takes about 3-12 minutes depending on the machine and your body size.  The cost ranges from about $45.00 to $350.00 and insurance does not cover it.  Great way to see how your “crunches” are doing.
