Body Composition Analysis: What is it?

At Dr. Roza Israel, the Center for Medical Weight Loss we rely on our Body Composition scale to perform body composition analysis for our patients. These analyses allow our weight loss doctor to devise the right plan for you.

During a body composition analysis, you’ll remove your shoes and socks and then wipe your feet and the palms of your hands. After stepping on the platform and entering your age, weight, and height, you’ll hold the handles while the machine performs an analysis that is over in seconds. The printed results state the fat and muscle composition of your body. Dr. Israel will then use that information to determine what kind of weight loss plan is appropriate for your needs. Every week, you’ll undergo an analysis to see how your fat and muscle ratio is changing and to ensure that you are losing fat instead of valuable muscle.

*Each patient's experience is unique based on medical conditions and body composition, as each patient's body is different. The amount of weight loss may vary based on these and other variables such as program adherence and metabolic factors*
