InBody Guide For Dummies: How To Read Your Progress

Inbody for dummies

Part 1:  What you’re made of.

 Weight (body weight): is Sum of Body Fat Mass + Lean Body Mass (fat-less mass)
Lean Body Mass (fat-free mass): is the Dry Lean Mass (protein mass +minerals) + Total Body Water ( intracellular +extracellular water)

  • Intracellular water:  associated with improved nutrient retention and use.
  • Intracellular water: indicates excess body fat mass/inflammation/water retention/injury/malnutrition.

Part 2: The muscle-Fat bars.

Skeletal Muscle Mass (SMM): The muscles attached to your skeleton; the ones affected by our workout
Body Fat Mass: Sumof all your body fat.

  • Normal ranges are shown in grey. Persons having higher SMM than body fat are considered  stronger than the ones with higher body fat than SMM.

Part 3: Where do you stand?

The ideal BMI ranges between 18.5 to 25 kg/m^2

Preferred PBF would be from 18 to 28 %

Part 4: Are you symmetrical?

This analysis evaluates if the muscles in your body are well developed in each segment of the body .

The upper bar Compares the actual amount of  Muscle Mass to your ideal weight derived from your height

The lower bar shows the Percentage of the Muscle Masscompared to your own weight

  • Values could be shown if below normal (low) , normal, or above normal (high).
  • Note that all values in this analysis range in the normal window.

Part 5: The health indicator!

The extracellular water to total body water normal range should be from 0.360 to 0.390. A value close to the baseline means we have more intracellular water( nutrient and water retention in the cell), and a value close to the high line indicates we have high extracellular water (water retention/inflammation or dehydration).

Part 6: History!

This history analysis is used to track past measurements on the result sheet.

Part 7: Your guide!

The in-body test computes the amount of body fat and lean body mass you need,  suggesting how much to lose and how much to gain.

Part 8: Where’s all the fat?

This section measures the distribution of fats in your segments, and this result shows the trunk to be the fat winner!

Part 9: Calories gun.

This is exactly how many calories your body burns per day, AT REST. This test is a determinant of how many calories you should consume, whether you are trying to gain or lose weight.

Part 10: Your abdominal fat level

Abdominal fat level is associated with the risk of cardiovascular disease.

Low risk: below 10

High risk: above 10
