Want to Lose Body Fat?

Let’s Talk About Body Composition with Weight Loss

Minnesota weight loss, Arizona Weight LossSo, what is the real difference when we lose weight versus when we lose Body Fat? Many of us are familiar with the term BMI. What about our Body Fat compared to our muscle? After all, when we lose body fat, we become leaner, thin and in shape. For those of you who have never heard the term BMI, which stands for Body Mass Index, it is simply just a math term which is outdated and has the understanding what your ideal healthy weight should be based on your height. Well in reality, to shrink, you have to lose more than weight. Your body needs to lose body fat. Based on your BMI you could see if you are currently at your ideal weight, underweight, overweight or obese. Needless to say, using only two factors to determine if you’re healthy or not was deceiving to many. Overall, more updated and accurate weight loss tools should be used to offer real results which can guide you to getting results you want.

Lets take a look at why this is so important.  Well, what if you are an athlete? Imagine you weigh 156 pounds and are 5’3″. That would put you in the overweight category on the BMI chart. Pretty simple right? Now, let’s say being that weight, you were only 21% body fat and are wearing size 6 pants. Does that sound like an overweight person to you? No, not at all. Hence the reason for the need for a new method and methodology for determining what an individual’s true healthy body weight should be. Introducing Body Composition. The way to determine when you lose Body fat and not muscle. Body Composition still uses weight and height, but digs deeper to separate lean mass from actual body fat.
