Body Fat Percentage Composition Analysis


What Is Body Composition?

Body composition is used to describe the percentages of fat, bone, water, and muscle in human bodies. Two people of same sex and body weight may look completely different from each other because they have a different body composition.

Body composition and growth are key components of health in both individuals and populations. The ongoing epidemic of obesity in children and adults has highlighted the importance of understanding body fat levels for short-term and long-term health. However, other components of body composition also influence health outcomes, and its measurement is increasingly valuable in a clinical practice.

What Are The Dangers Of Not Knowing Your Body Composition?

A healthy balance between fat and muscle is vital for health and wellness throughout life. Scientific evidence shows that a healthy body composition will increase your lifespan; reduce the risk of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, insulin resistance, etc.; increase energy levels, and improve self-esteem

Why Is Body Composition An Effective Tool For Nutritionists?

Nutritionists are responsible for the development and adjustment of dietary protocols specific to each client’s starting point and goals. Successful nutritionists must understand their client’s lifestyles and food preferences, as well as the challenges that each type of client faces. With the proper tools, these specialists can educate clients in order to identify achievable goals and increase their success by tracking progress throughout their programs. 

The InBody Result Sheet provides nutritionists with the tools needed to effectively understand and empower each of their clients to succeed.
