Understanding your body composition readings

This analysis includes a number of measurements providing an in-depth look at your body composition. You and your health professional can use this analysis to assess your current health, and to develop a fitness and nutrition program that, over time, will maximize your health. 

Body Mass Index (BMI)

BMI is a standard height to weight ratio useful for classifying risks associated with weight gain. The World Health Organization (WHO) classification has been developed using the following grading system that links increases in BMI to increased health risks. 

Body Mass Index                  WHO Classification

<18.5                            Underweight

18.5 – 24.9                     Healthy weight

25.0 – 29.9                     Overweight

30+                              Obese 

Fat %

Body fat is vital to daily body functions. It cushions joints, protects organs, helps regulate body temperature, and stores vitamins. However, serious health risks are associated with both too much, and too little body fat.Compare your results to your “Desirable Range.” By design, women’s bodies require a higher percentage of body fat to be healthy.

BMR—Basal Metabolic Rate reflects the amount of calories used by the body to maintain normal functions when at rest. Daily activities and exercise increase BMR by approximately 15%. BMR helps you establish just how many calories your body needs in a day to achieve proper energy balance.
