The Key Factor for Improving your Body Shape and your Health is your Body Composition:
The Ratio of Muscle to Fat (Bodyfat vs Lean Muscle) is commonly known as your Body Composition. Losing Bodyfat must be the Goal of your Weight-loss plan, as this is the key to re-shaping your body and is the key to decreasing your risk of health problems. The way to measure your Body Composition is by calculating your Bodyfat % with a Bodyfat Caliper.
