Weight & Body Measurment - Feb16
What is body composition?
The definition of body composition is 'the percentages of bone, fat, water and muscle in human bodies'. All these factors can be measured.
Why monitor body composition?
Body composition monitors are designed for healthier living by giving you an insight into key health indicators that will enable you to monitor the impact of changes to your lifestyle:
•See the impact of a change in diet on the body to make sure you are dieting the healthy way
• Fine-tune your fitness programme by monitoring progress of muscle mass and Basal Metabolic Rate
• Monitor the level of visceral fat, which has been linked as a possible risk factor for developing Type 2 diabetes and/or heart disease.
• Set a target for your physique and monitor your progress towards it.
