Nutritionists are responsible for the development and adjustment of dietary protocols specific to each client’s starting point and goals. Successful nutritionists must understand their client’s lifestyles and food preferences, as well as the challenges that each type of client faces. With the proper tools, these specialists can educate clients in order to identify achievable goals and increase their success by tracking progress throughout their programs. The InBody Result Sheet provides nutritionists and dietitians with the tools needed to effectively understand and empower each of their clients to succeed.
InBody devices are non-invasive and convenient, making it the ideal tool to implement into nutrition programs for body composition analysis. The InBody Test provides comprehensive results that can be used to track and educate clients on body fat and health risk as well as understand the differences in diet consumption effects.
In less than 60 seconds, the InBody Test provides easy-to-understand, accurate and objective measurements to evaluate a client’s current body composition as well as monitor the success of dietary interventions. Nutritionists can use the InBody to:
Determine baseline body composition and link these parameters to client diet
Assess Basal Metabolic Rate to create more targeted and effective nutrition programs
Track changes over time to ensure client progress and success
Below are examples of the different types of clients nutritionists and dietitians will encounter and how the InBody results sheets can be implemented into practice, creating success for all clients with different needs and goals.
Distinguish between muscle and fat loss with Muscle-Fat Analysis
Relying on BMI to track changes in body composition is limited due to its inability to identify if losses are due to changes in fat or lean mass. Since low-calorie diets are common when promoting weight loss, one of the main concerns with these low-calorie diets is the risk of losing muscle mass, a negative outcome in terms of weight loss, health risk, and functional strength. InBody allows nutritionists to measure body composition and track where weight loss is coming from, in a convenient, timely manner.
Visual representation of health risk can be hard to portray to clients. InBody Result Sheets provide a visual representation of a client’s balance between muscle and fat, helping nutritionists show clients their overall health risk based on their current body composition. This in-depth assessment allows dietitians to set effective weight loss goals and is a powerful tool for tracking progress to ensure proper improvement is being made. As weight is lost, tracking which compartment the loss is coming from, i.e fat mass instead of lean mass, improves clients health and lowers future health risk.
Establish proper nutrition plans with basal metabolic rate
Developing nutritional programs based on a client’s unique caloric needs can be difficult when using indirect calculations. InBody’s Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) is a more accurate representation of caloric need that is based on fat-free mass. Through the use of BMR, nutritionists will be able to establish detailed programs aimed specifically at a client’s goal of optimizing fat loss while maintaining muscle mass. Once weight loss has been obtained, weight maintenance through use of BMR can establish goals to ensure proper nutrition and caloric intake. By monitoring BMR and changes as lean mass is maintained or gained, will improve maintenance programs and client success.
