You betcha! although you might want to make sure and wait for someone else to confirm it as I am not confident. Better yet, why don't you e-mail the Nutrisystem guys because they can assist you better...
I looked at the site. Looks interesting. I think a direct measurement (this is) has advantages over calipering for those with a little "skin". Couldn't find the testing center link..
I find just monitoring.
(I have a very regular lifting regime) allows me to tell if I've lost muscle. But body fat is a useful second check..
Also, if I want to increase muscle (who doesn't!?) perhaps going up in body fat would support that better. At that point, monitoring bf% at some regular intervals can be helpful to know when/how to adjust target weight.
Congrats on the 17% Bear..
Heres the link for those interested in searching for a bodpod near them.

It's interesting, the guy who tested me said that calipers are only +/- 8% accurate. That's a huge swing. The real value to me is knowing the exact BMR rather than an estimation..
I'm getting re-tested in February so I can't wait to see what kind of progress I make...
Hard to imagine that eight months ago I was over 39%, well into morbidly obese country. Now I'm in the middle of "moderately lean", on my way to "lean"..
I'm super jazzed about this...
How have the numbers impacted what you will do, bear? Feel more confiedent at 210 knowing you have a safe amount of fat?.
Here is the locator:.
You're a stud. Watch out, bob will be after you!..
Thanks for the link, I got ahead of my typing..
For me, it validates that I have added the exact amount of calories to support the strength building that I am doing, while still allowing me to cut fat. So, I would love to keep the weight at 210, but get the BF down to the 12-14 range, which would mean adding about ten pounds of muscle/losing the same in fat...
