What Is a Bod Pod?
Bod Pod is a weight loss tool that determines body composition, or your ratio of body fat to lean muscle. Because Bod Pod gives you in-depth information that a scale simply cannot give you, it is considered the gold standard of body composition testing.
At Balance Hormone Center, we believe that Bod Pod is a critical component to your long-term, effective weight loss program.
Why is Body Composition Critical to Weight Loss?
It can be frustrating to diet and exercise, yet step on the scale and see that it hasn’t moved. Or worse, that you’ve gained weight. But, that’s exactly why a scale is not an effective weight loss tool.
A scale simply measures your body mass. Bod Pod gives you an accurate assessment of body composition.
Why is that critical to weight loss? When you know your body composition, you can more easily determine how much fat you’ve lost and how much muscle you’ve gained. This allows you to adjust your diet and exercise routine for the most effective weight loss results.
Plus, knowing your body composition helps you monitor your overall health. People with a higher percentage of body fat to lean muscle are at risk for a host of health problems, including:
- High blood pressure
- Type 2 diabetes
- Heart disease
Bod Pod gives you the accurate body composition information you need to effectively lose weight and improve wellness.
Why Use Bod Pod?
Bod Pod is considered the gold standard of body composition testing. Compared with more invasive or uncomfortable forms of testing, Bod Pod offers patients:
- Greater accuracy allowing you to tailor your weight loss program for optimal results.
- Faster testing gathering all the information you need in two minutes, with printed results in five minutes.
- Comfortable, safe testing compared with a caliper test or underwater displacement.
- Resting metabolic rate which measures how many calories you burn when sedentary, so you can you adjust your calorie intake to maximize results.
- Long-term tracking because it’s safe and non-invasive so frequent testing allows you to track changes over time.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Bod Pod?
If you are struggling with weight loss or just want to know your body composition in order to track your progress that you can be in the best shape of your life, Bod Pod is ideal for you. Bod Pod is also recommended for patients who may have difficulty with other means of testing such as children, the elderly, the disabled, or those who are obese.
