Have you ever stepped on the bathroom scales and wondered, how am I the same weight? Or how did I get heavier? The truth is that weight loss and fat loss are too completely independent terms. Losing “weight” is attributed to a loss of overall mass, including muscle, water, fat and more. Losing fat is, well, losing fat. So, the bathroom scales haven’t moved. Did you lose fat and gain muscle? Did you lose both and are holding extra water? Accurately measuring body composition is essential, and that’s where body composition scanning comes in. It provides precise metrics to help you monitor your health and fitness levels.
How does the body scanner work?
The Evolt 360 Body Scanner passes a light electrical signal through your hands and feet. The scan lasts around 60 seconds and is non-invasive. Electrical flow resistance helps the scanner determine the difference between water, mineral, fat, and skeletal mass. Readings are tailored to the individual, considering height, weight, age and gender. The scanner will produce a report that includes the following:
- Lean Body Mass
- Total Body Water
- Calculated Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR)
- Body fat mass and percentage
- Visceral fat area
- and much more!
