There’s More to Weight than the Scale

There’s More to Weight than the Scale

Many people count calories or watch the scale on a daily basis finding themselves disappointed that they aren’t able to move the needle even after weeks of dedicated effort. We are here to tell you there is more to weight than the scale. Your body is essentially made up of two main components—lean mass and fat. Lean mass includes muscle, bone, water and connective tissue. When you lose weight, it is possible to reduce fat, lean mass or both. The goal of weight loss is typically to decrease body fat while maintaining your lean mass. The scale is useful but only tells part of the story, which is why we monitor body composition (body fat and lean body mass) with the Inbody test. Find out more about how your body is adjusting to your diet and exercise on the inside, and come in for a free trial of the InBody scale.
