, and Leptin PLoS ONE April 2nd, 2012 by Nirav R.
Table 3 shows the difference in percent body fat
estimates from the three methods by body weight (BMI) categories.
These include bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA), which uses an electrical current to estimate body fat
The survey was commissioned by private healthcare provider Bupa which this month launched a pounds 149 Core Health Assessment which includes checks on BMI and body fat
The researchers divided the patients into five groups based on body fat
percentage: less than 10% (34 patients); 10% to less than 20% (156 patients); 20% to less than 30% (210 patients), 30% to less than 40% (182 patients), and 40% or higher (89 patients).
How to measure body fat

callipers are by far the easiest way is to measure your body fat
Compared to the reduced-fat diet, the reduced-carb diet was particularly effective at lowering insulin secretion and increasing fat burning, resulting in significant body fat
loss," says Kevin Hall, senior investigator and lead study author, "but interestingly, study participants lost even more body fat
during the fat-restricted diet, as it resulted in a greater imbalance between the fat eaten and fat burned.
His model simulations showed that only the carb-restricted diet would lead to changes in the amount of fat burned by the body, whereas the reduced-fat diet would lead to greater overall body fat
loss, but he needed the human data to back it up.
