What does our body water level tell us?

Ratgeber Gewicht

The human body consists of up to 65% water. Water is an important factor in personal well-being. Too little can cause tiredness, poor concentration and even serious damage to your health.

Standard values:

â—¾ Women 45-60%
â—¾ Men 50-65%

People with a very high body fat percentage generally have a lower body water content, because fatty tissue contains very little water. Both body fat percentage and body water content need to be taken into account when dieting. Rapid weight loss at the start of a diet is largely due to loss of body water while the body’s fat reserves remain untouched. This is why both values should always be monitored.
