Fat to Muscle Ratios
For our clients that wish to lose body fat, knowing the fat to muscle loss ratio is critical. When humans lose body weight, they typically lose fat and muscle, the ratio of which is extremely important to your success. Surprisingly as humans lose weight, even if they work out at the gym and even if they consume a lot of protein, will still often lose muscle mass. At Body Measure, by doing thousands of scans, we have determined the optimal fat to muscle loss ratio for our clients.
By knowing this ratio during your weight loss journey, our experts at Body Measure can give advice on how to make changes to maximise fat loss and minimise muscle loss.
If your goal is to gain muscle, the fat to muscle ratio is equally important. Time and time again our experts at Body Measure see muscle gain come with unacceptable amounts of fat gain. By knowing fat to muscle ratio as you work out to gain muscle mass, our experts can give advice to maximise muscle gain whilst minimising fat gain.
Once clients have achieved their body composition goals, we advise one or two DEXA scans per year to ensure fat mass, lean tissue and bone density are all within the ranges to maintain the body that you desire.
At this stage, many clients pick new body composition goals and discuss these with our experts.
