Many people are on weight loss programs and do not include body mass. If you lose water and muscle mass instead of fat mass, you will have trouble maintaining a healthy weight and hence begins the yo-yo cycle. There is no miracle solution and we all know that. However we still fall for the miracle solution we see with the bombardment of weight loss ads.
Health and body mass
Body mass index is directly related to health. It is an extraordinary tool to find and maintain a healthy weight, slows down the aging process and other malaises we relate to aging.
The composition of your body is divided into 2 parts: Fat mass and lean mass. Lean mass is composed of all the elements in the body, except fat. This means muscle bones, organs and body fluids. Even though we need a certain amount of fat for the vital organs to function, an excess of fat in relation to lean mass can affect your health, your vitality, and your well being.
A “BIA” Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis test evaluates your body composition, which can help with your FAT weight loss. Combined with a healthy eating plan, the BIA test will also help you monitor your progress with your body mass index and FAT loss.
Another part to being healthy, your body retains a certain percentage of water, which is around72%. When you feel fatigued for a long period of time, or feeling of cramps in your feet or calves, this could be, symptoms of dehydration.
Each cell has to contain a certain quantity of water . One cell dehydrated is a malnourished cell.
The reverse would be water retention. Water retention in the tissues is associated with a high level of toxicity, a hormonal imbalance, inflammatory conditions, the taking of certain medications, a high level of salt in foods and the list goes on.
Also keep in mind that water retention could also influence weight on the scale
