Body Composition Testing
At Target Metabolism, we do not use the scale to weigh you in. Why not? Because the scale does not tell you what TYPE of weight you are losing. The scale can be very misleading in one of two ways:
- If you are starving yourself intentionally or unintentionally, the scale might go down (until an inevitable plateau) but the majority of the weight loss will be water and muscle…instead of fat! In this case, the scale becomes a negative-behavior reinforcer.
- If you are changing your life habits at home, but the number on the scale doesn’t change, you may become frustrated and throw aside all your new habits. BUT, who says you didn’t lose 3 lbs of fat and gain 3 lbs of lean mass? The scale does not reflect true changes in your body. THE BODPOD DOES! It is through the BodPod that we help you to eliminate frustration by showing you what is actually occurring in your body!
How do we measure weight loss?
At Target Metabolism we utilize a revolutionary piece of technology called the BodPod to measure the amount of fat that you have lost. The BodPod is used to make SURE that it is fatty tissue you are losing! NOT simply water, and CERTAINLY not muscle! By targeting your metabolism, we target fat loss. In fact, when our members complete ClubMET, 100% of their weight loss comes directly from pure fatty tissue! According to the American Dietetic Association, only 75% of weight loss is expected to come from fat. Our program is blowing those statistics away!
