Body Fat Percentage

This value can serve as a guide to whether you need to adjust your diet, fitness programme or fluid intake to help you to achieve a healthy balance.

Our bodies comprise of bone, fat and muscle. Fat is vital for a healthy, functioning body – it protects vital organs, cushions joints, helps regulate body temperature, stores vitamins and helps the body sustain itself when food is in short supply. But too much or too little body fat can be damaging to our health. This is why it is important to measure and monitor our body fat percentage using the Activ8rlives Body Analyser.

Body fat percentage gives us a good measure of wellness when used in conjunction with weight – if we are aiming to lose weight, our weight loss could be because we are losing muscle mass rather than fat – we can still have a high percentage of fat even when a scale indicates ‘normal weight’.

This table provides guidance for the Body Fat ranges for men and women.
