Easy. Remove the body from the foot.

Not so simply. You must first determine the amount of Mass that comprises the foot being weighed. Then, you must ascertain the densities of the component materials. After that, it is simply a matter of reconstructing the foot and weighing it

You figure out the mass of your body (X), then take the mass of just your foot (Y) weigh your body: (Z). The weight of the foot is (Q)

X/Z = Y/Q

Solve for Q
