What is visceral fat rating and why is it important to know?
It is important to know one’s visceral fat rating because research shows that even if your weight and body fat remains constant, as you get older the distribution of fat changes and is more likely to shift to the trunk area, especially in post-menopausal women. Rating from 1 to 12: Indicates you have a healthy level of visceral fat. Continue monitoring your rating to ensure that it stays within the healthy range. Rating from 13 to 59: Indicates you have an excess level of visceral fat. Consider making changes in your lifestyle possibly through diet or exercise.
