3 Things Your Scale Won’t Tell You

What does a scale really do? Besides hurt your self esteem, that is.

Your scale can tell you your overall weight, but here are a few important things it can’t tell you. That’s the key to this video from Buzz 60.

If you obsess over the digits on your scale, it’s time to take a break. As the video description notes, “Your scale may tell you your weight, but it’s leaving out some important info about your complete physical fitness.” The host of the video, Krystin Goodwin, highlights what a scale does and what your scale won’t tell you.

What Is Buzz60

Update for 2020.

We always want to look into the makers of these videos we post, and this one looks legit. Back in the day, Buzz60 produced a ton of great video content, so we dug into their website to see what they’ve been doing recently. In the interest of transparency, wanted to update the reader.

According to the Buzz69 YouTube page, “Buzz60 is designed for the way we live now. Short, quirky video snacks that are a little sassy, and always smart. Buzz 60 — and the Buzz60 channel on YouTube — produces all kinds of news video clips for web viewers who want more than just repurposed content. Our team is a diverse group of video journalists with dozens of Emmy awards, an authentic sense of humor, and a mandate to connect with viewers every day.”

While the YouTube page was formed in 2007, it doesn’t look like the website is active any longer. If you click the link or type buzz60.com into a browser, you are redirected to a website for SR&ED (scientific research and experimental development). Not sure what happened to the website — maybe someone in the IT department forgot to renew their domain with GoDaddy — but their YouTube videos are still being actively uploaded to this day.
