The Right Advice
Skinfold anthropometry is just one of the ways you can have your body composition measured. The assessment measures subcutaneous fat, or the fat found just below the skin. In lean people, approximately half of the body’s fat stores are subcutaneous (Sports Dietitians Australia). The rest is visceral fat, the fat that is found around the organs.
Skinfold assessment can be done regularly, often once per month to check changes to an individual’s subcutaneous fat mass. This provides much more detail than a simple weigh in. We also provide body composition analysis using a DEXA machine at our Parramatta clinic.
Our assessment is packaged as an extended review session with your Dietitian, allowing for 45 minutes. This includes your personalised review, along with the skin fold assessment and explanation.
