Reading Your Report
One of the features that sets SKINNY apart from other weight loss programs is our excellent equipment, including our Olympic-grade scale and body composition analyzer. When you step onto the scale and hold onto the electrodes, the machine sends a tiny current through your body. You don’t feel a thing, but this electrical current measures the ease with which it flows through different parts of your body. It travels more easily through fat cells and water than it does through denser muscle or bone. After only a few seconds, you’ll have a printout of your full body composition analysis.
What is Body Composition Analysis?
Your body composition analysis is a report that tells us how your weight is distributed. With it, we can tell how much weight is being stored as fat, how much is being retained as fluid, and how much is made up of your muscle mass and skeletal system. This gives us a good picture of your overall health. It also gives us a number of starting points to look back on as you lose weight and change your body’s composition to a healthier one.
Some of the measurements on your body composition analysis report include:
Body Fat Percentage – This is the percentage of your weight made up of essential fat and stored fat. Essential fat is the body fat necessary for organ, nerve, and bone marrow function. Stored fat is the mass that accumulates when we eat more calories than we burn. In general, a good body fat percentage for men is 11 – 14% (5-10% for athletes) and 16 – 23% for women (8 – 15% for female athletes).
Lean Body Mass – This is the percentage of your weight distributed to your bones, organs, fluids, and muscles. This measurement will stay fairly consistent throughout your weight loss, but can increase if you build muscle mass through weight training.

Dry Lean Mass – Dry lean mass is the weight of your muscles, organs, and bones. It can vary depending on how hydrated you are, but should also remain fairly consistent.
Body Mass Index (BMI) – This rating is determined by your height and weight. It tells us where you currently fall on the weight spectrum from normal weight to obesity.
Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) – Your BMR is the number of calories you should consume each day to keep your body running efficiently. It is the bare minimum necessary to sustain life and health if you are completely sedentary. The higher your muscle mass, the higher your BMR will be.
Active Metabolic Rate (AMR) – Your AMR is the number of calories you should consume each day with your activity level factored in. The more you move, the more calories you need to power your body.
Body Water % – Adult humans are about 50 – 60% water. Since muscle stores more water than fatty tissue, men’s body water percentage tends to be a bit higher than women’s. This measurement tells us how much of your weight can be attributed to water. It will fluctuate somewhat with your hydration levels.
Benefits of Body Composition Analysis
A body composition analysis is an important reference to have during your weight loss journey. By knowing how your weight is distributed, you get a picture of how much healthy weight you’re carrying and how much fat mass you can stand to lose. These measurements tell us if you’re at an increased risk for preventable diseases, such as diabetes, due to excess weight. They also tell us how many calories you should be consuming so that we can plan your nutrition and activity accordingly. You can also use your initial report as a benchmark to look back on and see how far you’ve progressed!
