Body Composition Analysis
Blueprint Nutrition uses the InBody 270 medical grade, non-invasive, bioelectric impedance analysis (BIA) scale. This tool looks beyond weight and body mass index (BMI) to provide a more in-depth and personalized analysis of your health. The 15 second test provides a breakdown of body water, fat mass, skeletal muscle mass (and how it is distributed) and an estimation of your basal metabolic rate (BMR). Tracking these measures over time can show you how your dietary changes and training are affecting your body composition and can help us adjust your nutrition plan accordingly.
While we often recommend this tool for our high performance athletes, we use this tool in combination with multiple other measures of success. Prior to use, we will together weigh the pros and cons of using body composition measurements in order to make the best decision for you and your health.
