#1 WEIGHT LOSS MISTAKE
While weight loss and fat loss generally go hand in hand, many people make the mistake of looking at how much weight they are losing, ignoring their body fat percentage.
NOW INCLUDED IN MEDIKALOKA SCREENINGS
InBody Composition Testing. Obesity has overtaken smoking as a major, independent risk factor for heart disease. If you're overweight or obese, you can reduce your risk for heart disease by successfully losing weight and keeping it off.
What is body composition, and why is it important?
Your body is made up of water, muscle, and fat. Body composition testing is a way of measuring these different components of your body. Weight and body mass index (BMI) are not clear indications of good health because they do not distinguish how many kilos are fat and how many are kilos are lean body mass. Even if you are skinny, but you have too much fat — especially if a lot of it is at your waist — you're at higher risk for health problems such as high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol and diabetes that increases your risk for heart disease and stroke.
Why test on the InBody?
The InBody provides an easy and accurate analysis of body composition so one may identify the condition of the body. The InBody will report the gains achieved by exercise and consumption of a balanced diet, which are essential in living a healthy lifestyle.
Why do I need to know how much muscle I have?
The InBody result sheet will show if you have enough water and protein. This amount varies depending on how much muscle you have. Having proper amount of muscle in the lower body is beneficial. If you have insufficient muscle, this may overwork the joints and risk of arthritis will increase.
Why shouldn’t I base my current health status off of weight alone?
The ratio between muscle mass and body fat and the distribution of body fat is more meaningful than body weight. Muscle is denser than fat, that is why a slim person with more muscle can weigh more than a person with more fat.
