Personal Nutritional Counseling

You can learn to keep eating the foods that you love by modifying your intake and cooking these foods in a healthier manner. We will also advise you on proper exercise methods.
A BMI reading is one way to determine whether or not a person is overweight. However, it is not the only factor used in deciding if a person should begin a diet program. Your BMI is calculated using your weight and height. BMI does not distinguish between body fat and fat free mass.
Fat Free Mass
Fat free mass is made up of muscle, bones, and water. This number helps to determine your metabolism. The higher your fat free mass, the higher your metabolism. Knowing this will help you to maintain your goal weight once you reach it.
Our state-of-the-art Tanita Body Composition Scale is one of the many tools we use to customize the program for you. Using BIA technology, or Bioelectric Impedance Analysis, the scale will give you an exact measurement of:
- BMI - Body Mass Index (Weight in kg/Height in m2)
- BMR - Basal Metabolic Rate (The total energy expended by the body to maintain normal functions)
- FAT PERCENTAGE - Percent of body weight that is adipose tissue
- FFM - Fat Free Mass
- TBW - Total Body Weight (50%-70% of total body weight)
- FAT MASS
- IMPEDANCE - The body's resistance to electrical current. Muscle is a conductor and adipose tissue is a resistor, so as your muscle increases your impedance will be lower.
- DESIRABLE RANGE - Healthy range for Fat % and Fat Mass.
