What is body composition?
While the scale will tell you how much you weigh, it doesn’t tell you what your body is made of.
Body composition refers to everything in your body, split up into different compartments. Two compartments are commonly used: fat mass and fat-free mass.
Fat mass refers to all the fat tissue in your body. Fat-free mass is everything else, including muscle, organs, bone and fluid.
If both change at once, you might not see any changes in body weight.
For example, if you start exercising, you may gain two pounds of muscle in the first month. At the same time, you may lose two pounds of fat due to burning more calories through exercise or changes in your diet.
Since your fat-free mass increased by the same amount as your fat mass decreased, your body weight won’t change.
If you focus on the number on the scale, you may become discouraged or frustrated because your program “isn’t working.”
This is one example of why knowing your body composition is much more useful than knowing your body weight.
According to science and In our model, the ideal body is high in muscle tone and bone density. In addition, a nutrient dense diet is metabolized by a healthy gut with proper supplementation to support growth. In this scenario, hormones are optimized, and WEIGHT loss is really FAT loss -- which happens when all these factors come together.
Gut health, low inflammation markers, fat burning hormones rocking, fat storing hormones at bay, healthy thyroid function, adrenal stressors handled, sleep is prioritized and exercise & movement are prioritized. There is a focus on Caloric deficit, cycling nutrients and a knowledge about HOW TO DO THIS.
This is part of an anti-aging/pro-vitality centered approach to aging, as MUSCLE is the organ of longevity!
