Know your Body Compositions
You must have heard about body composition from various medical experts, famous personalities in the health and wellness domain talking about this metric as an integral part of health measurement.
But all you’re wondering here is, “What exactly does body composition mean?”
Well, don’t worry you are at the right place!
In simple terms, body composition is a method of describing what your body is made of, differentiating between different parameters like fat, protein, minerals, body water, bone density and so on. In short, it provides you with a complete analysis of your health.
Body Weight is the most common metric to analyze the body size, but not the best to understand your health condition. Weight only provides a measure of how gravity works on a mass. Body weight analysis alone is not enough to measure your health. Weight can be affected by hydration, menstrual cycles, food intake, and so on. Body weight alone cannot provide you with the internal health condition, but you can track your overall weight as a general guideline of your body size. But Weight alone isn’t the best indicator of your health. That’s where the body composition comes in the picture! Along with body weight, BMI, BMR, Muscle Mass, Bone Mass, Body Water indexes play a very important supportive role.

Body Fat helps to keep you warm and protect your organs and joints. If your body fat percentage is too low, your resistance to diseases and energy levels are lower, and you are at risk of health issues.
