Tips to calculate how much fats you have gained

Woman EatingThe most people define the state of your body weight. But with age the body composition changes: muscle tissue is gradually replaced by fat. If a person not engaged in exercises to strengthen muscles, they become less and begin to accumulate fat. This is especially true for women. Withdrawal can not be a strong indicator of health and beauty. A more accurate “tool.” Many people resort to popular spreadsheets for the ratio between height and weight. But specialists in sports medicine stressed that these indicators do not give full information as to be recorded and the type of physique, reported magazine Prevention. Already appeared and tables reporting type build: lean, mean, wholesale. At the same height difference obtained from 5-6 pounds. But they are not sufficiently objective. To determine the amount of excess fat, you need to calculate the fat content of the general composition of the body. The certain amount of fat is vital for the proper functioning of the body – from 12 to 15% of the total mass of the body. Fat accumulated over that norm harm health and of course spoil the shape. The percentage of fat is estimated as follows: 10-20% – excellent, 20-25% – good, acceptable 25-30%, 30-35% – well, 40% or more – the comments were unnecessary. For men the rates were slightly lower because of the structure of the body of their gender.
There are two basic ways to calculate the concentration of fat:
1. By tailoring M
Measurement using a sewing m waist (just above the umbilicus) and hips (at the widest part of them). The ratio of these two “risk areas” is an accurate indicator of the condition of the body. Of course, if the ratio increases, fat is accumulated, if it reduced – fat is lost. Divide the width of the waist width of the hips. As individual and structure of the body, the resulting number should not exceed 0,8. Otherwise, you should seriously think about reducing fat.
2. So-called “Clipping” of the skin
Pinch your thumb and forefinger skin fold at the back of the shoulder (slightly higher than the armpits). Let your skin, but do not alter the position of the fingers. The distance between them must be measured with a line and you will receive the depth of the crease. If it is more than 2.5 cm, then under the skin has excess fat. Time to take action. And yet no more accurate and truthful method of standing in front of the mirror.
