Toss the Scale and Focus on the Real Deal: Body Composition!

Measure Your Body Composition with InBody

Now at Kaufman Health and Hormone Center

Body composition refers to the proportion of fat, muscle, bone, and water in the body. Unlike simply tracking weight, which provides a single number representing total body mass, body composition analysis provides a more detailed understanding of what makes up that weight. This can be crucial for individuals who want to improve their overall health and fitness.

Some key components of body composition analysis and why they matter:

1. Fat Mass: This is the total amount of fat in the body. While some fat is essential for various bodily functions, excessive fat accumulation can lead to health problems such as obesity, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes.

2. Muscle Mass: Also known as lean body mass or skeletal muscle mass, this represents the weight of muscles in the body. Increasing muscle mass can improve metabolism, strength, and overall physical performance.

3. Body Fat Percentage: This is the proportion of total body weight that is comprised of fat. Monitoring changes in body fat percentage can be more informative than simply tracking weight, as it reflects changes in both fat mass and lean body mass.

4. Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR):* BMR is the number of calories your body needs to maintain basic physiological functions while at rest. It’s influenced by factors such as age, gender, body composition, and genetics. Understanding your BMR can help with setting appropriate calorie targets for weight management.

5. Visceral Fat Level: Visceral fat is the fat stored within the abdominal cavity, surrounding vital organs such as the liver, pancreas, and intestines. Excess visceral fat is associated with an increased risk of metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease, and type 2 diabetes.

Why do I care about the composition of my weight?

The composition of your weight matters because it provides a more accurate reflection of your overall health and fitness than simply tracking your weight alone. Here’s why:

Health Risks: Being at a “normal” weight according to BMI doesn’t necessarily mean you’re healthy. Many individuals within this range may still have elevated risks of cardiovascular disease and diabetes due to poor body composition, such as having excessive body fat and low muscle mass.

Metabolic Health: Even individuals with a normal BMI can have metabolic issues if they have a high percentage of body fat, particularly around the midsection. This condition, often referred to as being “skinny fat,” can contribute to metabolic disturbances and increase the risk of various health problems.

Fitness Level: Body composition reflects not only your fat stores but also your muscle mass. Low muscle mass and poor fitness conditioning can affect your overall health and functionality. Increasing muscle mass can improve strength, metabolism, and overall physical performance.

Appearance and Tone: Many people aim to “tone up,” which typically involves reducing body fat and increasing muscle mass. Tracking body composition allows individuals to focus on gaining muscle and reducing fat rather than solely focusing on weight loss. Building muscle adds shape, firmness, and tone to the body.

Better Indicator of Progress: Tracking body composition, specifically body fat percentage, provides a more meaningful indicator of progress than tracking weight alone. Changes in body fat percentage reflect changes in fat stores and muscle mass, giving a clearer picture of improvements in overall health and fitness.

So by focusing on body composition rather than weight alone allows individuals to better understand their health risks, improve their metabolic health, enhance their fitness level, achieve their desired appearance, and track their progress more accurately.
