The challenge for those who approach retirement or are already retired is to stay healthy using a combined exercise and diet plan. A sedentary lifestyle is not recommended for anyone and especially not for those who are older and retired.


Tracking body fat can provide one key component in staying healthy. The body requires some fat to perform some functions. Body fats help proper performance of cells, absorption of various vitamins, immunity from certain illnesses, storage of energy and protection of organs and bones.


Too much body fat can result in obesity and various illnesses. The calculator below can be used to determine Body Fat and the chart that follows provides the acceptable ranges.
