Body Fat Testing

Losing weight is no goal if you are losing muscle. Tracking measures of body fat and lean body mass can help you achieve your goals for optimum fitness and functionality. At Your Nutriton Design, we offer both measurements using skinfold calipers and bioimpdence analysis (BIA).

Skinfold Calipers

Non-invasive and accurate, skinfold calipers can give you baseline information on your lean body mass (muscle) and body fat. Losing weight is a good goal, but if you lose muscle, you’ll be trapped in the yo-yo weight loss, weight-gain cycle. With the help of your nutritioinist, Kimberly Mathai, RD, you’ll get a nutriton plan that maximizes muscle development and targets fat loss.

Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA)

Bioelectrical impedance analysis uses undetectable current of electricity to measure your body composition, your body fat % and lean mass. Using electrodes on just two areas of your body, this test is easily done with simple adjustments to your everyday clothes in the offices of Your Nutrition Design. If you’ve wondered what your optimum calorie intake is, you will choose this tes (BIA). You’ll get valuable information on your resting metabolic rate and total calorie burn.
