METABOLIC PROFILLING: At Fit and Fab we help you to study your Body weight composition with help of a monitor called Krada (Body) Scan. It’s a type of weighing scale that gives details about weight composition detail explanation about the Fat, Muscles and water. Body composition means Tissues and water content composing body muscle, fat and bone. Following description helps us to understand our body fat and other index and conduct health management. It uses BI (Bioelectrical Impedance) to calculate the figures.

What we get to know?

The Body weight of that day.

It is found in the abdomen and surrounding vital organs. It is different from fat found directly underneath the skin, which is referred to a subcutaneous fat Visceral fat can go largely unnoticed because its not visible to the naked eye. One way visceral fat can be seen is through Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). Too much visceral fat is thought to be closely linked to increased levels of fat in the bloodstream, which may lead to conditions such as high cholesterol, heart disease and type 2 diabetes. In order to prevent or improve theses conditions, it is important to try to reduce the amount of visceral fat levels to an acceptable level.

Interpreting the Visceral Fat Level Results:

Fat below the skin. Subcutaneous fat is not only  accumulated around the stomach but also around the upper arms,    hips and thighs, and can cause a distortion of the body’s proportions. Although not directly linked to increased risk of disease, it is thought to increase pressure on the heart and other complications.

This fat serves a vital role in storing energy and protecting internal organs. We carry two types of fat in our bodies: (1) essential fat which is stored in small amounts to protect the body and (2) adipose tissues (stored fat) provides cushion and insulation to internal organs, covers the nerves, moves vitamins throughout the body and is the largest reserve of stored energy available for activity. While too much body fat may be unhealthy, having too little fat can be just as unhealthy. Also the distribution of body fat in men and women is different, so the basis for classifying the body fat percentage is different between the genders.

What is body fat Percentage?
Body fat percentage refers to the amount of body fat mass in regards to the total body weight expressed as a percentage
Body fat percentage (%) = {Body fat mass (kg) / Body Weight (kg)} X 100
Our device uses BI method to estimate your body fat Percentage
Depending on where fat is distributed in the body. It is classified as visceral fat or subcutaneous fat.

RESTING METABOLISM: Regardless of your activity level, a minimum level of energy is required to sustain the body’s everyday functions. Resting metabolism, the amount of calories needed to supply the body with the minimum level of energy, differs between individuals depending on variables such as age, weight Body composition and energy expenditure
60% – 70% of daily energy use is for resting metabolism
The total amount of energy used by the body in a typical day is as follows:

The ratio of these is 60% – 70% for resting metabolism, 20% – 30% for daily activity, and 10% for diet induced thermogenesis. This means that resting metabolism accounts for most of our daily energy consumption. If our daily caloric intake exceeds the amount of energy required for these activities, the additional calories can be stored as fat

SKELETAL MUSCLE: Is divided in to 2 types, muscle in internal organs, such as the heart and muscle attached to bones that is used to move the body. Skeletal muscle can be increased through exercise and other activity.

The Skeletal Muscle ratio refers to the amount of skeletal muscle mass in regards to the total body weight expressed as a percentage

Skeletal Muscle Ratio (%) = {Skeletal muscle mass (kg) / Body weight (kg} x 100.

Interpreting the Skeletal Muscle Percentage Results (for adults)

BODY AGE: It is based on the resting metabolism. Body age is calculated by using our weight and body fat percentage to produce a guide to judge whether our body age is above or below the average for our actual age. To know our body age is useful to improve our health condition.
Body age varies according to Body composition and resting metabolism, even if your height and weight is the same.
