|What does body fat mean?
Why is it important to measure the body fat?
fat is the extra energy (i.e., calories) that you eat that is not used
in your daily activities. High levels of body fat cause the body's
internal systems to work unduly hard, thus significantly increasing the
risk of heart attacks, strokes, hypertension, diabetes and certain
types of cancers (reference: NIH, 1985 Consensus Report).
body fat is readily controllable by reasonable eating habits coupled
with moderate exercise. However, the key to body fat control is
knowledge -- i.e., periodically measuring your percent body fat and
comparing it to recommended values, which allows you to steer your
health in the right direction.
