Can I use the scales even when I am pregnant?
Even when you are pregnant, it's completely safe to use the Youw8 scales. The measurement results will not be reliable though, particularly body fat percentage and body water will be influenced. Weight, however, can be effectively monitored.
What does BMR mean?
Your BMR (Basal metabolic rate) shows how many calories your body needs when resting. To calculate this, you must indicate how 'active' your day is. This way your BMR can be calculated and you will learn how many calories you need to consume in order to: lose weight, stay at the same weight or even gain weight.
What is the best time to weight myself?
We advise to always use the scale under the same circumstances, once or twice a week. Measure yourself in the mornings, preferably without clothes, when you have been rested, are not dehydrated, and after you have just used the lavatory. The most important aspect of measuring, is to measure the developments over a larger period of time.
What does BMI mean?
BMI stands for Body Mass Index, and is a number that determines whether or not a person has a 'healthy' weight. It is an indication of a person's health and is used worldwide by doctors and dieticians. Medically speaking, the BMI for a person with a 'healthy' weight should fall somewhere between 18 and 25 (under 18 is considered 'underweight' and unhealthy. This person should try to gain weight). When it falls between 25 and 27, this is an indication that a person is starting to become too heavy. When it falls between 27 and 30 you are advised to lose weight! Does it fall over 30? Then weight-loss is absolutely essential, if the person in question does not want to risk medical complications! The Youw8 widget will measure your BMI and present you result in the form of a colour. yellow = underweight green = a healthy weight orange = be carefull, you are starting to become too heavy red = obesity; you are at risk of developing medical complications
I have a pacemaker
We would like to inform bearers of pacemakers or other medical electronic devices that their fat measurement could be inaccurate, because their devices may influence the conduct of the electrical current. Weight, however, can be effectively monitored.
