How A Body Composition Analysis Can Help You Lose Weight
Losing weight is a different process for everyone, and yes we know this isn’t the first time you are hearing this! However, did you know that a body composition analysis can bring to life what it is that makes your weight loss process different than everyone else’s?
Let’s start with what a body composition analysis is.
It’s a simple, non-invasive test that helps identify your body composition in different areas of your body. This can include your water weight, body fat and even muscle weight. A body composition analysis can even reveal if you’re hydrated enough. It is important to track your body composition while losing weight because, for example, if you know that the majority of your body fat is in one area or that you are building muscle in another, you and your Be Well 365 weight loss team can help guide you to success.
Metabolic Age and Basal Metabolic Rate
Beyond being able to tell you what your body is made up of, a body composition analysis can also identify your metabolic age and your basal metabolic rate. The goal of your metabolic age is to get it to match your biological age. The lower your metabolic age, the more in shape you are. Metabolic age is calculated with height, age and weight. Therefore, as you lose weight you help to lower your metabolic age.
Your basal metabolic rate is the amount of energy you spend while resting, or more simply how many calories it takes for you to live and breathe. Understanding your basal metabolic rate can help you calculate how many calories you need to lose or gain weight.
