Preferred Mode of Measurement of Body Composition – Justin

I like the Bioelectrical Impedance that makes use of electrical impedance/conductivity in the body to measure the amounts of body fats and lean mass for the following reasons:

1. Readily available since the 1980s
It is very available, which saves time and costs when wanting to know our body composition.

2. Makes use of body compositions
Rather than using air pressure or measurements, the BI makes use of the Total Body Water standard in our bodies to accurately measure how much fat content we should have.
The disadvantage of this is the consumption of water, which may cause this value to alter.
