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. A healthy balance between fat and muscle is vital for health and wellness throughout life. Tracking body composition over time, as we do at the Center, allows Clients to track their progress over time on this very important metric, that has implications on increasing your lifespan; reducing the risk of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, insulin resistance, etc, and increasing energy levels, as well as improving self-esteem.
Body Composition allows for an analysis of your lean muscle mass and visceral fat mass, an important vector for current and future health. Comite outcomes are known to reverse visceral fat with significant weight loss, if indicated, as well as increase lean muscle mass. “Sarcopenia” (also known as’ low or poor muscle mass’) is strongly associated with diseases of aging. Sarcopenia, or loss of lean muscle, strongly correlates with poor health and aging. It is reported that after 70 years of age it is more common to be thin than fat. The reason? Visceral fat may not be visible (visceral means the fat can be buried in organs, like the liver) and the weight loss is due to loss of lean muscle.
