The Lifelong Metabolic Center program uses body composition analysis to help determine your goals. We look at the healthy range for many different metrics, such as:
Once we see where you measure up when compared to healthy metrics, we can determine which program is best for you.
These programs can be done from anywhere in the country, so Dr. Borre will teach you how to track these metrics from the comfort of your own home.
Body composition analysis is the information we are able to glean from a highly specific scale (i.e., weight, body fat, muscle mass, level of hydration, visceral fat, metabolic age, etc.).
It is important not only to look at your weight; we also want to see how much of your body is composed of fat versus muscle mass or water. In the first 3 phases of the Lifelong Metabolic Program, we focus on getting your weight to a healthy number. After that, we’ll focus on the composition of your body and making you the healthiest you can be.
Body composition analysis is important in helping us develop a personalized weight loss program. It shows us where you are, where you should be, and the results along the way. We can use this information to speed up or slow down your weight loss at a safe and effective rate.
Our in-office body composition analysis is completed using a Tanita scale. The process looks and feels like stepping on any other scale. You step on it with bare feet—and here’s where it differs: an undetectable current travels up one foot through your body and down the other, back to the scale. The speed at which the data travels is translated into numbers on your report, like your metabolic age, which will give us more data to maximize the effectiveness of your Lifelong Metabolic Center program.
The whole process is completed in a matter of seconds—usually 15–30 seconds total.
Dr. Borre will track body measurements in 8 different locations to see where the weight is distributed and how your body sheds the excess fat.
Body composition analysis information can be used to determine your current body metrics, set reasonable goals in each category, and also help track your progress.
Once we know which numbers fall outside of the healthy range, we can focus on those and try to improve them before your next visit.
When tracking from home, we will use the body fat, muscle mass, and weight data to identify where and when to make any changes to the plan. Home measurement charts and information about tracking those metrics will be provided.
The Lifelong Metabolic Center program uses body composition analysis to help us determine your goals. We look at many different metrics, such as:
Once we see where you are, we’ll compare your metrics to the healthy range. Then, we will determine which of our programs is best for you.
Patents with a BMI under 30 are typically recommended our 6-month program while those with a BMI over 30 are recommended our 1-year program.
The body composion analysis is one of several tools we utilize to determine which plan is the right plan for you to get the weight off and keep it off for life.
