BOD POD measures body composition

Bod-Pod

NOVEMBER 2015 – Does muscle really weigh more than fat? The quick answer is, yes. By volume, muscle weighs approximately 18 percent more than fat.

The 600 human body muscles make up 40 percent of body weight. Muscle, along with bones, skin, organs and water make up lean body mass.

The rest is fat.

Yet ironically, most people when standing on a scale only think about fat. They think about losing fat when reducing weight.

Worse, they don’t understand shedding pounds by dieting only and without participating in weight training to maintain and build muscle, they aren’t just losing fat. They are also losing muscle.

Without scientific measurement, there’s no way to know how much muscle and fat, we lose.
