Why does it matter?
It’s a fact:
Body Fat to Muscle Ratio: How much lean muscle you have vs. how much body fat you have, and WHERE you are storing fat is one of the #1 predictors of longevity. People with the most body fat, more than 35% fat for men and 38% fat for women, are most likely to die within a few years, regardless of weight and BMI. Keeping lots of lean muscle and little visceral (organ) fat is a sure way to live a long, healthy life.
