DEXA scans, what is the benefit of getting more than one scan?

7 Body Measure Question of the week.jpg

All of our clients at Body Measure know that DEXA scans are the gold standard for body composition. The most advanced technology giving you the most accurate representation of your current composition.

Your FIRST SCAN is your a base line. With this information our experts can calculate your ideal weight, the time in weeks to get there, and the muscle and fat changes you should be expecting! Also, and most importantly we get a measure of your VISCERAL fat levels (the bad fat!)

Your SECOND SCAN is crucial to your success, here you will find out how your body has actually responded to changes in diet, lifestyle or exercise. This is where we give you tailored diet and exercise advice to get you to your goals in the shortest time possible.

One of the most shocking things we find with the second DEXA scan is that the client is actually overtrained and they are losing too much muscle.

LOSING MORE MUSCLE THAN FAT?
We see this a lot at Body Measure. When this occurs your body is not responding to your diet and workout protocols in a positive way and we need to address this immediately
These are usually the common reasons why:
🔹 Over training
🔹 Under eating
🔹 Not getting enough sleep
🔹 Gut / digestion issues
🔹 Simply run down

GONE ANABOLIC?
This is the most triumphant goal you could achieve!
If you are losing fat and increasing muscle at the same time your body is in an optimal state of change, the best advice we can give you know is to change NOTHING….. Here a client has hit the perfect balance of exercise and diet and needs to milk this as long as they can

We are lucky to have such amazing research grade technology available to the general public.
