What is Body Composition?
Body composition is a method of describing what the body is made of. It also describes weight more accurately than BMI. Body composition analysis can accurately show changes in fat mass, muscle mass, and body fat percentage.
When you’re thinking of losing weight or simply want to see how healthy you are, you probably do one of two things: step on a scale or calculate your BMI. But the truth is, these methods don’t tell you anything about how healthy you are– all weight and BMI does is compare how heavy you are to a standard that doesn’t fit your individual goals. BMI and weight don’t differentiate between muscle and fat. So how can you? Through body composition analysis
Stepping on a body weight scale simply tells us the combined weight of all our body’s tissues. That weight may fluctuate throughout the day depending on the time of day, hydration status, if we have eaten, or what we are wearing.
In contrast, body composition reveals the relative proportions of fat and lean mass in the body. Fat mass consist of two types of fat: essential and nonessential fat. The second component of body composition, lean mass, refers to bones, tissues, organs and muscle.
Our body composition is a combination of our genetics and the environment we live in. You cannot change your genetics (blame your parents!) but you can do many lifestyle changes to improve your body composition.
Research has shown that your health is closely linked to your body composition. A normal balance of body fat is associated with good health and vitality whilst an excess in body fat in comparison to lean muscle mass, is associated with an increased risk of developing detrimental health conditions such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
