Comparitive evaluation of body composition methods and predictions, and calculation of density and hydration fraction of fat-free mass, in obese women.
* By relating anthropometry, bio-electrical impedance and bio-electrical impedance with anthropometry to dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry, this study has increased the accuracy of estimates of fat-free mass in individuals over the age of 75 years.
The body fat and fat-free mass of the players were predicted using a 4-point bioelectric impedance analysis (Bodystat, QuadScan 4000, Douglas, United Kingdom) in supine position under laboratory conditions.
Fat-free mass in overweight and obese older women: Analysis of concurrent validity of bioelectrical impedance equations.
There is however a lack of data concerning the composition of the body weight lost (fat mass or fat-free mass) induced via plant-based diets.
The results of our study confirm previous findings that severe growth hormone deficiency is associated with an increase in fat tissue, decrease in fat-free mass, predicted muscle mass, and total body water.
Fat-free mass also changed over time and improved significantly after 8 weeks of resistance training (p < 0.001).
Secondary efficacy outcomes included changes in body composition (waist/hip circumference, body fat, and fat-free mass), hunger and fullness, and fasting lipids and blood glucose parameters.
Body weight is not a suitable measure for assessing ideal body composition related fitness because an increase in weight due to an increase in fat-free mass (FFM) can be misinterpreted as an increase in body fatness.
OBJECTIVES: To evaluate body composition parameters, including fat-free mass (FFM), appendicular skeletal muscle mass (ASMM), relative skeletal muscle mass (RSM) index, body cell mass (BCM), BCM index, total body potassium (TBK), fat mass, percentage fat mass (FM), and their differences between age groups and to evaluate the frequency of sarcopenia in healthy older subjects.

The weights, the total body index, the basal metabolic rate, the rate of body fat, the fat mass, the fat-free mass, total body water rates of the students were evaluated with the Analyses of Bioelectric Impedance and in measuring the waist-hip rates lineal meter were used.
