The weight on the scale is only the beginning of what we can know about the structure of the body. The COMPOSITION of that weight tells you where you need to work. By utilizing bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA), we garner state-of-the-art measures like Skeletal Muscle Mass, Total Body Water, Fat, Phase Angle, and Intracellular water. For example we can help answer questions like, 'are those excess pounds water retention, body fat, or a combination?' The strategy you follow for optimal health depends upon where you need to lose (or gain) the weight. A variety of body composition assessment methods will be discussed, with an emphasis on supine BIA - the gold standard of body composition assessment proven in over 40 years of research by the National Institutes of Health, the US Navy, ESPEN, Cancer Treatment Centers of America, Yale, Harvard, the University of Michigan, and many others.
