19 May: Dr. M’s E-Housecall: Measuring Body Fat & Why It Matters

Your weight is a combination of bones, muscle, organs/tissues, and fat. So the reading when you step on the scale can increase if ANY of those components increase. Because of that fact, yes fact, just using your weight to measure your fitness or health is not as helpful as knowing your body composition, as in, how much body fat and muscle mass you have.
