Why is my bathroom scale not accurate?
There're different factors that impact the accuracy of your regular bathroom scale.
1. The moment you weigh yourself The actual moment you step onto your bathroom scale is very important. This should always be in the morning right after you get up. Try to avoid drinking or eating anything befor you step on your bathroom scale.
4. The positioning of your bathroom scale To get the most out of your accurate bathroom scale positioning is very important. Placing your bathroom scale on a carpet is not recommended. The best surfaces to position your bathroom scale are wooden, concrete or hard linoleum floors. Make sure the surface where you place your digital weighing scale is flat and hard.
3. The room temperature The temperature can have significant impact on the results shown on a bathroom scale. We always advice to position a bathroom scale in a room where chances of temperature fluctuations are reduced to a minimum. Preferably a room where the temperature is constant during the entire day. For those lucky few.. the walk-inn closet is recommended!
2. The sort of bathroom scale you have What kind of accurate bathroom scale you have matters. Simple digital scales often provide not the best results. This can have different reasons. But the one of the most important reasons your bathroom scale might be off is the technique that is used to accurately measure your weight.
