Why Measure Your Body Fat?

I recently measured a woman's body fat because she didn't like the number her personal trainer had given her. Maybe you've been tempted to make a similar request. There isn't anything wrong with it, but it shows a misunderstanding about what a person's body fat percentage means and how it's measured. So let's clear it up.

A body fat test is an attempt to separate every pound of your body into one of two categories: your fat mass and everything else. What isn't fat mass is considered "lean body mass," which consists of your bones, muscles, hair, water, and miscellaneous stuff. So no, it's not just muscle!

This ratio can be deceiving in a number of ways. For instance, small, slender people who don't weigh much may actually have a greater percentage of body fat than larger, more muscular people who weigh more. That's just one reason why your weight on the scale or a set of measurements doesn't necessarily give a true picture of your health.
