WHAT IS BODY COMPOSITION?

BODY COMPOSITION IS THE PHRASE USED BY MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS AND THE HEALTH COMMUNITY TO REFER TO THE PERCENTAGE OF FAT, WATER, BONE, MUSCLE, SKIN, AND OTHER LEAN TISSUES THAT MAKE UP THE BODY.
 
 KNOWING YOUR BODY COMPOSITION PROVIDES MORE DETAILED INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR HEALTH. TWO PEOPLE CAN WEIGH THE SAME, BUT HAVE VERY DIFFERENT WELLNESS AND FITNESS NEEDS BECAUSE OF THEIR BODY COMPOSITION.

WHY IT’S IMPORTANT

BODY COMPOSITION IS IMPORTANT BECAUSE IT MEASURES YOUR OVERALL HEALTH AND FITNESS LEVEL IN TERMS OF YOUR BODY FAT PERCENTAGE. YOUR BATHROOM SCALE CAN’T TELL THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HOW MUCH OF YOUR WEIGHT COMES FROM FAT AND HOW MUCH FROM MUSCLE. BUT BODY COMPOSITION MEASUREMENTS CAN.

LESS FAT AND MORE MUSCLE TENDS TO POINT TOWARD A BETTER LEVEL OF HEALTH.
