Why is body composition testing important?
Measuring body composition gives a more accurate indication of health than simply using a traditional scale. Health risks are associated with being both “over-fat” and with not having enough body fat. Your registered dietitian can track your progress as you work on obtaining your health goals.
What can body composition tell me?
Our Vacuumed BodyStat 1500 can give you a more complete evaluation of your potential health risks. This state of the art body fat analysis machine measures your weight in pounds.
It also measures body composition which indicates
body fat percentage, lean mass percentage, body water percentage.
Also, the BodyStat measures Body Mass Index (BMI), your average calorie requirement and so much more!
If you are looking to change your lifestyle and improve health, get more accurate results to help tailor your nutrition plan. Breaking down body composition can help us see the whole picture of your starting point. Instead of focusing on pounds which does not show the who story. So, instead of using the scale to measure progress by reducing total pounds; we want to work to support lean body mass and lean muscle mass to make you feel strong and healthy!
Make an appointment with one of our registered dietitians to have your body composition measured!
