Body fat is vital to daily body functions. It cushions joints, protects organs, helps regulate body temperature, and stores vitamins. However, serious health risks are associated with both too much, and too little body fat.
Fat Free Mass is everything in the body that is not fat; muscle, water, bone, connective tissue, etc. Muscle acts as the body’s natural “fat-burning engine,” therefore it is important to maintain or even gain healthy muscle mass when exercising or dieting.
It is important to ensure your body is not dehydrated, especially when exercising or dieting.
The muscle mass includes the skeletal muscles, smooth muscles, and the water contained in these muscles. Muscles play an important role as they act as an engine in consuming energy. As your muscle mass increases, your energy consumption increases helping you reduce excess body fat levels and lose weight in a healthy way.
As you become more active and reduce the amount of body fat, your physique rating will also change accordingly. Even though your weight may not change, your muscle and body fat levels may be changing making you healthier and at a lower risk of certain diseases.
Basal Metabolic Rate reflects the amount of calories used by the body to maintain normal functions when at rest. Daily activities and exercise increase BMR by approximately 15%. BMR helps you establish just how many calories your body needs in a day to achieve proper energy balance.
This feature compares your BMR to the average age associated with that level of metabolism. If your Basal Metabolic Age is higher than your actual age, it is an indication that you need to improve your metabolic rate. Increased exercise will build healthy muscle tissue, which will improve your metabolic age.
This feature indicates the weight of bone in the body. While bone structure is unlikely to undergo noticeable changes in a short period, it is important that you develop and maintain healthy bones by having a balanced diet and plenty of exercise.
Visceral Fat is the fat in the abdominal cavity, surrounding the vital organs. Even if your weight and body fat remain constant, as you get older the distribution of fat changes and is more likely to increase in the trunk area. Ensuring you have a healthy level of visceral fat reduces the risk of certain conditions.
BMI is a standard height to weight ratio useful for classifying risks associated with weight gain.
