BODY FAT                               Your body fat percentage is    26.9%               OBESE

            Everyone needs some fat to stay healthy. We have different types of fat in the body.  Subcutaneous fat is the fat just
            below the skin, so we can often feel it. It provides insulation/warmth, cushioning/protection, and is an energy reserve.
            Subcutaneous fat is not related to many of the classic obesity-related disorders, such as heart disease, cancer, and
            stroke. Visceral fat is hidden internal fat that is wrapped around your organs. This is a bigger health risk. Too much
            visceral fat can;

              Raise your blood cholesterol
              Increase your blood pressure
              Put you at increased risk of developing coronary heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
