Why do you need to know your Body Composition

Body composition, or fat vs. fat-free (lean) mass, has long been considered by fitness and medical experts as one of the best determinants of health status and disease prediction. Testing can help to determine a person’s overall health. Body composition reflects the results of a person’s physical activity and nutritional practices and a body fat test can be the first step to regaining health.

Purely using body weight can be very misleading, because a scale can’t tell the difference between a kilogram of fat and a kilogram of muscle. However body fat testing can determine what is fat and what is muscle.

Sedentary people can easily gain fat and lose muscle without any noticeable change in their weight. A person undertaking an exercise/weight training program may also not experience a significant change in weight, yet their muscle mass is most likely increasing, while they are also probably losing body fat. A body composition test will reveal these important shifts in body composition that scales can not.

The technical term for this is Direct Segmental Multi-frequency Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (DSM-BIA).
