Body Composition

Getting Lean to Maintain Better Health

A healthy body composition (favorable ratio of lean tissues to fat) is associated with overall health. But lean tissues (e.g., muscle, bone) naturally diminish with age and foster increased fat storage. Even those who maintain their normal weight may develop a larger ratio of fat tissues that negatively influence a number of health functions, such as blood sugar metabolism, lipid metabolism, and blood pressure. Lack of exercise, unhealthy diets, and prolonged stress also contribute to increased fat.

  • Over 3 in 5 American adults have a body mass index (BMI) of 25 or higher.†
  • More than 3 in 10 adults in the U.S. have a BMI of 30 or higher.†
  • A healthy body composition also enhances strength and agility for better performance as an athlete and in the game of life.

†BMI is often used as a predictor of body composition because in most people it correlates to the amount of fat (higher BMI = more fat).
