Body composition analysis : beyond the BMI
Medifast Weight Control Centers use Biospace’s InBody® technology to provide you with a detailed assessment of your body composition. InBody® measures:
- Skeletal muscle mass
- Body fat mass and overall body fat percentage
- Water balance (identifies dehydration and swelling)
- Muscle development in arms, trunk, and legs
InBody®, gives you an accurate assessment of your unique makeup, along with continual tracking of changes in your body as you lose weight. With InBody®, you can rest assured that your progress is healthy, and that your weight loss is targeting harmful body fat, not lean muscle.
Once you’ve lost weight, the challenge is to keep it off in a world where sugar, snacks, and fattening food are everywhere. A large weight-loss study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA)* found that personal counseling is an effective strategy for maintaining weight loss over the long term.
Your Medifast Weight Control Counselor is a trained professional who provides information and encouragement while teaching you how to stay healthy in the real world.
