The scale only gives you weight. It doesn’t tell you how much water, muscle and fat you are made of.
When you have your BMI calculated, it’s based on weight and height. If you are 5% body fat before a bodybuilding competition but your weight and height are high and low, your BMI will be too high. This number doesn’t tell you much.
Body composition testing using an RJL Systems analyzer give us much more information. Water composition on an intracellular and extracellular level is measured. Proper ratios impact metabolism. This information can lead to better results for the effort you put in to your body transformation. In other words, without this information your may be working extra hard and getting results that could be much better for the same amount of effort.
Is this test accurate and reliable? This system of analysis has long been used in laboratories across the country. It is accurate and reliable.
A measure of cellular wall integrity gives us what’s called a “phase angle”. This number has convincingly been linked to a vulnerability to chronic disease as well as prognosis with an already acquired chronic disease.
Fat composition to lean body mass as well as a calculation of exactly how many calories per day you you must be deficient to meet your weight loss goals is provided.
Among other information, you will have a complete understanding of what you are made of. The test is simple, painless and takes only a few minutes. After the test, Dr. Lou reviews your results with you and explains them.
