      Many health and fitness articles in major magazines and on the
      web refer to the 'Muscle to Fat' Ratio of the body. Maintaining
      this ratio in the proper proportions is essential to keeping the
      body fit. But exactly what is the Muscle to Fat Ratio? Simply put
      it is the numerical balance between the body's muscle mass and
      adipose fat tissue. This ratio is out of balance when there is
      too much fat or too little muscle.

      An increase in the amount of fat leads to various chronic
      diseases like diabetes mellitus, heart diseases, obesity,
      arteriosclerosis, gallstones, etc. Therefore it is important to
      stay in the normal range of the muscle to fat ratio so as to stay
      fit, maintain the appropriate BMI (Basic Metabolic Rate) and to
      maintain the other processes of the body & mind.

      Body fat is measured in many ways, such as bioelectrical
      impedance, skin fold treatment, hydrostatic weighing tanks, and
      infrared interactance. Once the amount of fat has been
      calculated, it is important to bring it down if it is too high.

      There are many ways to bring the fat ratio down. Cutting back on
      fattening foods, and becoming "calorie conscious" works for some
      people, while others prefer to use a low-carb, high-protein

      Leafy green vegetables, and fish are more or less universally
      accepted, regardless of the weight-loss diet you undertake. And
      they help to build health muscle mass.

      Daily workouts can help bring the fat level down & also increase
      the muscle mass. Working out does not necessarily mean one has to
      join a gym. Simple exercises can be done at home with free weight
      and walking providing the basis of your at-home workout.

      Yoga is also an excellent form of exercise. A regular yoga
      session can definitely help bring the body in shape & also
      balance the muscle fat ratio. Regular jogging or running,
      skipping, aerobics can help in burning the fat. Also, sports like
      swimming, football, basketball, etc. can help in gaining of

      Any morning exercise session should be preceded or followed by a
      healthy breakfast. Products containing saturated fats & oils
      should be avoided. You can also schedule exercise throughout
      your day with a 10 minute walk, following lunch or dinner.

      To build muscle mass protein intake should be increased. Foods
      such as milk, eggs, fish, and poultry can help gain 'protein' or
      muscle mass.

      Muscle and strength training, through the use of free weights and
      weight machines, can dramatically improve your muscle to fat
      ratio. Large muscle groups must be exercised on a schedule which
      allows for at least one day of rest between workouts. It is
      important to let the muscles fully recover after a workout. To
      speed recovery times and enhance the benefits of your workouts
      you can use products such as MegaTropin� from www.BODeStore.com.
      which are shown to help users recover quicker and actually gain
      more strength and better training results from their workouts.
