Week 3: Fitness
What is body composition and how is it linked to health?
Technically, body composition is the division of total body weight (mass) into different components, most commonly fat mass and fat free mass. Percent body fat indicates the proportion of total body weight that is fat. Body mass index does not indicate the composition of the body weight. It is an index that provides an estimate of the appropriateness of the weight for the height.
High levels of body fatness are associated with increased risk of coronary heart disease, stroke, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, some cancers, and joint problems. Obesity and heart disease risk factors are known to track through the life span.
