Are you tired of battling with your weight?  Does it feel like no matter how strict your diet or how many times you go to the gym, you just can’t seem to shed the pounds? 

If you really want to transform your body and feel great, it’s time to stop thinking about your weight and start thinking about your body composition!

 

What you need to know

Your body is mainly composed of muscle, fat and water.  When you exercise more or start dieting, your body composition will change, even if your weight stays the same. This is because:

 

• As you exercise more, you develop more muscle mass and reduce fat.  Your weight may even increase at a certain point, as your muscle mass increases.

• Quick-fix, crash diets may produce speedy results, but the weight loss will be in the form of body water and healthy, lean muscle tissue.

• Very low calorie diets may force your body into ‘starvation’ mode, storing body fat rather than burning it.  So even if you lose weight, your fat ratio will increase.

 

If you measure it, you can manage it

A Tanita Body Composition Monitor will help you to understand the impact your fitness and diet plan has on your fat, water and muscle levels.  By monitoring your progress in terms of fat loss and muscle gain - even when your weight stays the same - you will be able to adapt your approach and stay motivated.  If you’re really serious about transforming your body, the key to success is to focus on building your lean muscle, staying well-hydrated and losing the fat. 

 

By thinking ‘Body Composition’, you’ll not only look fantastic, but you’ll also understand how to maintain a healthy balance.  You’ll be able to work on improving other factors that are essential to long-term health and well-being too; such as your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR), visceral (abdominal) fat and bone mass.

 

So forget the latest fad diet; use a Tanita Body Composition Monitor to take control of your weight loss and make sure that this time you lose weight safely, healthily and most importantly, permanently.
