Body Fat Percentage

Your body fat percentage reading illustrates the percentage of fat your body contains. Each time you take a reading with the Body Composition Analyzer your body fat measure will be automatically updated on your Dashboard. The most current reading will appear on the home page of the dashboard in a large numeric and color coded value. The ideal trend is to have your body fat level decrease, while your lean mass is increasing. Whether your total weight changes or not, if your body fat level is decreasing and your lean mass is increasing, you are well on your way to a healthier "you".

Calorie Burn

If you are using an activity monitor, every time you upload your activity data your information in the calorie burn section will automatically be updated. The large numeric and color coded value on your dashboard reflects your total calorie burn for the most recent 24 hour period for which you uploaded data. If the number is green then you are within ten percent of your daily calorie burn goal. Yellow indicates that you are between 10 and 20 percent below your goal, and red indicates that you are more than 20 percent below your goal.

When you expand the current calorie burn chart, you’ll be able to see the trend of your calorie burn over time. The time range can be adjusted to your preferences from a low of six minute intervals throughout the day, to weekly, monthly, annually, etc.

Hydration Level

Hydration is an important measure to monitor on a regular basis, as a majority of people are chronically under-hydrated. This condition can be a significant barrier to optimizing your health and managing your body composition.

Stayhealthy Hydration – What it means, and how you can use it

  1. Hydration and the Human Body
    • The adult human body is approximately 60% water. (60% for males, 55% for females.) The concentration of water varies within specific human tissue. For example, lean muscle contains about 75% water by weight, blood about 70%, bone 22%, and body fat about 10%.
    • Under-hydration is a health problem which can be chronic and can have many side effects, including fatigue, memory loss, poor skin and hair texture. As under-hydration becomes more significant, the effects on body organs and overall body function become increasingly severe, in the most extreme cases organ failure and death. Proper hydration is essential to achieving a healthy body composition and weight management.
  2. How the Body Composition Analyzer Measures Hydration
    • Stayhealthy's body composition technology measures the concentration of water primarily in lean tissue – (muscle, bones, blood, organs, etc.) Water concentration in body fat has little influence on the hydration estimate as the levels of water in body fat are limited.
    • By focusing on the water concentration in lean mass, Stayhealthy is able to provide a convenient estimate of your hydration level that is comparable from person to person regardless of their actual body composition. (For example, someone with a body fat level of 35% could never achieve the whole body hydration level of someone with a 15% body fat level.
  3. What your reading means and how can you manage hydration
    • Your hydration level is presented as a color coded number. Your objective should be to maintain your hydration level in the green.
    • Stayhealthy is not able to provide a specific level of fluid intake to attain your target hydration level. Every individual is unique and no one standard for fluid consumption is accurate. However, by using the body composition analyzer on a regular basis you should be able to determine what your fluid intake requirements are to achieve a proper level of hydration.
    • Stayhealthy suggests that you take an initial hydration reading, and based on the results increase or decrease your fluid consumption over the next day. By continuing this pattern over the course of several days, you will find what fluid level is necessary to properly hydrate your body. What you consume is important. You do not want to increase your consumption of caffeinated drinks such as coffee or colas.
    • Any drink that acts as a diuretic will defeat your efforts to achieve an optimum hydration level. Just because it is wet and you drink it does not mean it will help you to reach a correctly hydrated state.

Calorie Data

Calorie Data is provided here in a table form as a quick reference from your Dashboard homepage. It indicates the date and time that you last uploaded your calorie data, and the value of the last 24 hour monitoring period entered.

Blood Pressure

Each time you use a Health Assessment Kiosk that is web enabled, with a blood pressure monitoring device, your blood pressure reading will automatically be stored in your dashboard. The most current reading will be displayed on the Dashboard. If you expand this area, you will be able to view your readings over time.

Total Change

Total Change indicates your net weight change since you started using the program. If you happened to have reset your weight starting point from your profile settings it will show the total change from that point onwards.

Personal Burn Rate

This is calculated from the BMR calculator – can someone – John – perhaps add a simple explanation of this ? On the dashboard the information that is presented includes: “Base Calorie Burn, Set Activity Factor and Projected Daily Burn” So those components – assuming they are right is what we need to explain in the help text.

One of the best things you can do for your general and future health is to achieve a body fat percentage that is within a healthy range for your age and gender. Appearances can be deceiving and someone who appears to be overweight may in fact be within an acceptable range and some who appear acceptable may have too much body fat.

 

Your long term goal should be to achieve a body fat percentage that is in the green "Healthy" zone. Depending on your current body fat it may take some time to get there. Set a goal that you can comfortably accomplish within approximately 8 weeks by losing no more than 3 pounds per week, on average.

If you are trying to maintain a body fat percentage, then simply leave the slider in its current position and move to the next step where you can adjust your diet and exercise balance.

 

The healthy way to lower your body fat percentage over time is through a combination of regular physical activity and a healthy, lower-calorie diet. Depending on your goals you may want to weight your efforts in one direction or the other. For example, if your goal is to build more lean muscle mass, then your regimen will need more activity at a higher intensity level, and more calories as well. If weight loss is your primary goal, you'll need to ensure that you are maintaining your daily calorie deficit. Consult with a physical fitness counselor or personal trainer to learn what is the right regimen to pursue to achieve your goals.

 

Tips on setting date for your goal on Step 3

This is the summary of your plan. Note that your target is simply that, a target, and your actual results, such as your specific weight or body fat percentage, may vary based on your individual physique and the specific diet and exercise that you pursue.

You use energy no matter what you're doing, even when sleeping. BMR, or Basal Metabolic Rate, is the number of calories that your body burns on an average day without any form of additional activity or exercise. A regular routine of cardiovascular exercise and increase your BRM, improving your health and fitness and your body's natural ability to burn calories.

Your BMR is calculated in the following way:

Women: BMR = 655 + ( 4.35 x weight in pounds ) + ( 4.7 x height in inches ) - (4.7 x age in years )
Men: BMR = 66 + ( 6.23 x weight in pounds ) + ( 12.7 x height in inches ) - ( 6.8 x age in years )

 

It takes time to achieve goal and depending on your current body fat it may take some time to get there. A target of losing no more than three pounds per week is recommended. A good strategy is to set smaller, achievable goals as steps towards your long-term goal.

 

Your body is constantly burning calories throughout the day, even when you’re not being physically active. This is your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) and it is the minimum amount of calories your body needs to perform its day to day functions, such as digesting foods, maintain your normal heart rate and blood pressure, etc.
