Muscle Mass

Knowing our muscle mass % is useful if we are undergoing any changes in our exercise regime or undertaking a programme of weight loss. Lean muscle mass may decrease by nearly 50% between the ages of 20 and 90. We can replace this loss with fat if we do not maintain our activity levels. We can also lose muscle rather than fat if we undergo starvation-type diets, which are not recommended. At rest, the body burns approximately 110 additional calories for each kilo of muscle gained. So if we come off a starvation-type diet, we actually put on more weight as fat. Ideally we want to maintain our muscle mass % while reducing fat %, especially visceral fat.
