As Canadian waistlines continue to enlarge, we struggle to manage this problem or even measure it accurately. The Canadian Medical Association (CMA) has declared obesity to be a chronic medical disease, but realizes that some of the current assessment methods are ineffective. As we guide our clients through body fat reduction and muscle gains we need tools to adequately measure their progress and their setbacks.
Measuring Fat Loss – The Better Methods of Measurement
Join Peter Schwagly (RTN.M., CDT) as he explains the good, the bad and the ugly of body composition analysis and explains why many of the methods of measuring fat loss used today are inaccurate and failing your clients. There are better methods of measurement and ways to assess obesity, fat loss and muscle gains, but we need to understand them to make better use of the data they present.
In this lecture you will:
- Learn the latest in fat-loss measurement techniques
- Learn what methods of measuring fat loss are no longer useful and are misleading you and your clients
- Help your clients measure progress more accurately and easily
- Learn how the distribution and ratio of fat to lean mass effect disease and sport performance
- Understand how to compare data from different body composition systems and how weight, per cent fat and BMI can all be deceiving.
- Leave with the power to help guide your clients to optimal sport performance, reduced disease risk and how to determine what a healthy weight actually means.
