Then talking to us could help.
Weight gain involves a complex interaction between our genes, diet, lifestyle and environmental factors. While the disease is not possible without excess caloric consumption, relative to the amount of calories burned, the factors that govern caloric intake and caloric output are multi-faceted.
We know that the “calories in vs calories out” equation always holds true because in research studies that put overweight individuals in metabolic wards, where researchers control participant’s caloric intake, participants always lose weight. However, humans don’t live in metabolic wards in hospitals. They are exposed to environmental factors that can have a large effect on their genes, caloric intake, energy expenditure and body composition.
Many systems in the body need to be working optimally to achieve healthy weight management.
How do we measure your body composition? Through a TGA approved machine known as a BIA (Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis). The BIA measures body fat, muscle mass and fluid as well as cellular health. It can be a great tool to measure your improvements with both weight loss and also your naturopathic treatment.
