Body Composition Testing
Many of us rely on the scale to determine how “successful” we are in changing our health, but the scale only tells part of the story. Many women and men can dramatically transform their body composition without seeing the scale move. Others can increase their weight and IMPROVE their body composition. Knowing what you are made of allows you to track real change!
Using research-grade body composition testing, we illustrate how much fat, muscle, water, and bone is in your body. The DSM-BIA technology we utilize has excellent correlation with DEXA (the gold standard of body composition testing). Here is one research study that shows excellent correlation: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21555168
Understanding your body composition is the first step in creating a wellness plan.
Fit-Fax Body Composition Exam/Wellness Consultation (30 minutes)
In a 30-minute session, we provide you with an Inbody 570 body composition exam and a thorough explanation of results. We also teach you how your body analytics inform your nutritional needs. For example, your protein needs are based on the amount of lean mass in your body; and your BMR approximates how many calories your body needs at rest. You will leave the office with the following:
*Inbody 570 results sheet
*Caloric goal based on BMR and activity
*Macronutrient ratios based on body type
*2-3 customized nutrition/wellness goals
