In this video we discuss how to use body composition testing to monitor your overall health.
There are a number of different ways to monitor health with body composition.
-Your waist to hip ratio, which we measure, is an important marker of health. If your waist is bigger than your hips for either men or women that can be indicative or poor metabolic health
-Your balance of muscle to fat is also an important indicator of health. We pretty much always want more muscle than fat. We can see this very clearly on an InBody scan.
-Your body fat percentage is an important marker of health as well. For men you want to be between 10-20% body fat and for women you want to be between 18-28% body fat.
