If the holidays have you thinking about slimming down, you aren’t alone. More people initiate weight-loss journeys after the holidays than any other time of the year. Unfortunately, roughly 80% of people give up on their New Year’s resolutions by February.
Family practice physician Evan Allen, MD, and our team at Total Care Family Practice use advanced body composition analysis to help patients set weight-loss goals. We provide the support and tools to help patients trim down and keep it off for good.
Body composition is the breakdown of protein, fat, water, and minerals in the body. Body composition analysis can provide a more accurate representation of your weight and overall health than body mass index (BMI).
A snapshot of your body composition can assist us in developing the most effective program to meet your weight-loss and wellness goals. Your body composition analysis results can be used to help you break through a plateau and build lean muscle.
In addition, a body composition analysis can help you understand your risk of developing chronic diseases like high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol. That’s because certain health risks are closely linked to body composition.
Low lean mass, for example, can increase your chances of developing high blood pressure and heart disease. Even thin people who have an unfavorably low lean mass can be at risk of developing certain health conditions.
Understanding your body's core composition can assist us in developing a fitness and nutritional regimen to improve your overall health and lower your risk of developing chronic diseases.
Having a doctor’s support and guidance takes some of the guesswork out of weight loss. Our team can help you avoid common pitfalls and provide the advice you need to achieve your goals.
If you work with a professional through a physician supervised weight-loss program, you're also much more likely to keep the weight off. Your progress is closely monitored, and you’re coached and supported. This adds up to greater success than going it alone.
Dr. Allen tailors weight-loss recommendations to your specific requirements, goals, lifestyle, and body composition. Our team uses detailed information to anticipate obstacles and provide solutions to keep you on the path to wellness.
Our detailed body composition analysis goes beyond body fat and muscle mass to provide a complete picture of your overall health. If you're struggling to lose weight and keep it off, or if you want to improve your health and fitness, there’s no better place to start than getting a body composition analysis.
