Body Fat Testing

Our InBody machine provides information that a bathroom scale can't;

muscle gain versus fat loss.

 

What is the InBody?

The InBody scale measures water weight, basal metabolic rate, muscle mass, 

percentage body fat and more.

Body composition gives you a new way to think about and approach your weight. It provides way more useful information than relying solely on Body Mass Index (BMI) – the traditional way to determine if you are at a healthy weight. BMI is simply a number that represents your weight relative to your height.  But if you are even a little bit athletic, or if you lead a fairly sedentary lifestyle, BMI can be misleading.

Think about athletes, who tend to have high BMIs, but low body fat percentages. Or a desk-bound office employee at a healthy BMI who eats well. Sedentary adults working in offices who do not exercise are known to lose muscle mass, especially in their legs.  This leads to a drop in weight in muscle mass, but fat remains. This can lead to high body fat percentages, even in individuals with “normal” weights and BMIs. Ever heard of being skinny fat?

Body composition analysis can also be a useful tool to motivate you as we work together. Clients might think they’re not making much progress, when in reality, there are a lot of metabolic changes happening.

How often should the test be done?


I don’t recommend testing more frequently than every 3-4 weeks. That’s because it takes about that long to really differentiate significant changes.

What does it test?
