What is the InBody?

The InBody is so much more than a scale. It provides the user with more than a weight number. It is a comprehensive tool that tells your unique body composition, such as muscle mass, fat mass, and water mass.

InBody’s medical-grade body composition analyzers use multi-frequency bioelectrical impedance to measure your arms, legs, and torso. In one minute, you can gain valuable information about your body composition that can be used to help you lose weight, gain weight, meet your goals, and even create new goals.

When trying to lose weight, the information obtained from the InBody can be used to steer your diet and workouts towards your goal.

Skeletal muscle mass is the muscle that moves your skeleton. Through diet and exercise, this is the most effective indicator of health improvement. A pound of muscle burns more calories at rest than a pound of fat. When trying to lose weight, gaining muscle can actually help you burn calories. Weight training should be included in any weight loss program.

Body fat mass represents all the fat cells in the body. Keeping your body fat percentage within range for your fat mass and height are imperative to good health. The InBody breaks down your fat mass to include the amount of visceral fat in the body. This is the fat that surrounds the organs and can lead to diseases such as diabetes and heart disease. For a woman, the ideal body fat should be between 18-28% and for a man between 10-20%.

Water is also a major component of body composition. Every cell in the body is comprised of water. Keeping the body hydrated by drinking your lean body mass of water in ounces each and every day will keep your body hydrated. Without water, the body cannot properly metabolize stored fat or carbohydrates. Drinking enough water is essential for burning off fat from food and drink, as well as stored fat.

The InBody is so much more than a scale. Knowing your body composition and weighing weekly on the InBody will keep you accountable. It can be used as a tool to make changes to your diet and/or exercise so that you are always moving towards your goal.
