Body Composition - Understanding Weight Loss
Lean muscle, Body Fat and Health
Latest research has overturned the long held view that adipose tissue is merely a passive reservoir for storing energy. As adipose cells (adipocytes) become overfilled with fat their biochemistry changes. They secrete a wide range of highly bio active molecules (now called adipokines) with harmful metabolic effects.
Excessive subcutaneous fat stores also lead to altered levels of oestrogen and testosterone playing havoc with individual’s physical condition. These fats can be determined to a moderate extent by using skin fold calipers at various parts of the body.
Excessive intra-abdominal or Visceral fats stored around the organs are shown to be even more dangerous than peripheral subcutaneous fat. They are active triglycerides (fats) which are being broken down 24/7 releasing glucose and other harmful compounds into the blood stream turning the body into a fat storing machine.
Obesity characterised by high levels central abdominal fat is typically seen in people with a paunch and is hence described as android. Central fat can to some degree be determined by measuring a person’s waist circumference.
When it comes to your health and physical condition you only care about one thing... Results. You want to feel that you can understand them and that the nutrition and exercise programs you are using are having a serious impact on your physical condition. At New You, we acutely recognize this and the fact that you want to base your decisions on something that is truthful and data driven.
The more data we can give you and help you understand that data the more it will empower you to make better decisions and changes as far as your physical condition and healthcare is concerned.
Introducing the InBody 770 (as used by NASA) the latest and most advanced method of BIA - bio electric impedance analysis.
In medical research the Inbody 770 is 98% accurate compared to a DEXA scan reading, without the radiation. The inBody 770 test provides a comprehensive view of your body at a cellular level and much much more.
We can now segmentally determine the quality and quantity of Muscle, Fat and Bone cells in you’re body. We can now pre determine the onset of many weight related diseases such as Diabetes and structural breakdowns like Osteoporosis.
We can now also accurately pinpoint Protein and stored Glycogen levels within you’re muscle cells enabling us to provide and track more concise and precise Nutrition Protocols.
We can now determine optimum training and intensity levels by optimizing performance and preventing overtraining
