Bioimpedance analysis scales, while on a diet it is not only important to lose weight, but how it is getting lost!

Estimated reading time: 3 minutes

In Tisanoreica, through the activation of the metabolic pathway of ketosis that occurs during the Intensive Phase, the body is forced towards a selective use of fat for energy purposes. Thanks to the use of the bioimpedance-based precision balance, it is possible to precisely monitor this variation in fat mass and keep the body composition controlled for a long time. In less than a minute, in an upright position and without adhesive electrodes, you can measure your parameters of:

BIA Tanita, being also a scale with medical certification, is able to automatically provide the measurement of the BMI , which is the ratio between the weight expressed in kg and the square of the height expressed in meters. BMI is the most widely used index worldwide to define the degree of overweight / obesity (an individual is considered overweight if the BMI> 25).

Total water: Total body water represents on average 60-62% of weight in men and 56-58% in women. Total water is the main component of LBM. Under physiological conditions, its percentage of MM can range from 67.4% to 77.5% depending on age and nutritional status.

Fat body mass (FBM): A certain amount of fat is needed as an energy reserve and as a protection of internal organs. A good physical shape assumes a FBM value of 15-23% of body weight.

Phase angle: Electrical parameter that expresses the proportion between the intracellular and extracellular space. It is directly linked to the integrity of cell membranes. In a healthy individual, the phase angle value fluctuates between 5 and 7 degrees. The phase angle decreases when the cell mass is reduced and is useful for evaluating the nutritional status.

Lean mass (LBM): It includes everything that is not body fat (proteins, water, minerals and glycogen) and a good physical shape assumes an LBM value of 77-85% of body weight.

Visceral fat index: Visceral Adipose Tissue (VAT) is fat that accumulates in the abdominal cavity and around internal organs. VAT is believed to have a greater chance of causing lifestyle-related diseases than subcutaneous adipose tissue (SCAT), therefore knowing and periodically checking the risk of VAT accumulation is an important guide in the prevention of lifestyle-related diseases .

Muscle mass (MMusc): It corresponds to about 40% of the lean mass. By carrying out regular physical activity and eating properly, muscle mass is stimulated and increases, leading to an increase in the basal metabolism.
