Sample text

5 kg to reach ideal body weight there was a decrease of 66% in intra-abdominal fat, 56% in subcutaneous fat at the waist and 51% in subcutaneous fat at the hip, such that the intra-abdominal fat area and hip subcutaneous fat area were reduced to that seen in never-obese individuals at IBW, although the waist subcutaneous fat area remained significantly elevated. It is not yet clear whether these differences in composition in the reduced-obese individuals have any impact on subsequent health risks.

In the clinic, measurements of changes in composition in individual patients provide a valuable method to monitor the efficacy of treatment interventions and to design treatment programmes that maximize the loss of fat tissue. The key issue is to select a method with the necessary accuracy and precision yet which is suited to the practical difficulties encountered in routine clinical practice. The use of body composition methods in nutrition research is advancing rapidly.
