Hubbie and I went for our DEXA scan today with BodyScan UK. It was a really interesting and useful experience!
They also look at bone density, and apparently my bones are very dense (good news as I am a 54 year old female! - especially my skull apparently, which gave the highest reading in terms of density that the scan operator had ever seen! Don't know whether that is good or bad
Anyhow, no surprises in that I need to work on reducing my fat (shown in orange on the attached image). But my muscle percentage is good!
Hubbie has to work on building his muscle mass (percentage wise, he was off the low end of the scale) and also has to work on reducing his visceral fat, especially around the abdomen (same as me).
We will both be increasing our exercise levels (he doesn't really do any exercise...) and continue to be careful with the foods we eat. We were advised "high protein, high "healthy" fats" and low carbohydrate - which is what I have moved towards since last October).
In case anyone is interested, this is the website: bodyscanuk.com/
We have booked to have another in 12 months time so that (hopefully) we can track out progress!
In case anyone is wondering about the unusual skeleton / body shape, I am Thalidomide impaired.....
