SureHire explains Fat-Free Mass

Fat-free mass relates to the structural components within the human body that do not allow for fat accumulation. The vital organs, bones, connective tissue, muscles, and water content encompass fat-free mass because they are incapable of developing and storing fat cells. Body composition describes the physical mass of a single individual accounting for proportional weight subdivided into two categories known as fat-free mass and fat mass. A person’s diet, genetics, and exercise regimen determine the fat-free mass-to-fat mass ratio based on calorie consumption and its inverse conversion to energy with vigorous activity.
