BMI and Body Composition
Body composition is used to describe the percentages of fat, bone, and muscle in human bodies. The body fat percentage is of most interest because it can be very helpful in assessing health. Although body fat endures a negative reputation, fats and lipids play critical roles in the overall functioning of the body, such as digestion, energy production, regulation of major hormones, regulating sexuality, reproduction and optimizing weight. Fat is the body’s energy provider and energy reserve, which helps the body maintain a constant temperature.
The key to optimizing weight is signaling the cells to use all sources of energy, and the best way to accomplish this goal is by implementing a comprehensive functional and regenerative wellness plan.
