The aim of this work was to study a new concept, the functional body composition analysis (FBCA), as a new instrumental technique that includes the measurement of fat-free mass (FFM) and fat mass (FM), measurement of the energy expenditure (EE), and the measurement of sympathetic-vagal index (SVI), using the clino-orthostatic maneuver. This assuming that the FBCA is able to find differences among populations of men and women, when the body mass index (BMI) is very similar. A comparative study was performed implementing the FBCA in a group of individuals during fasting state. The results showed statistically and significant differences in the increase of EE. The male population increased significantly by 18% GE, and women just 5% without statistical significance.
