Body Composition Analysis is Pointless, Unless You Coordinate a Custom Meal Plan
by Christopher Fuzy MS, RD, LD
Body composition analysis is important for determining ideal weight, assessing calorie needs, expenditure and is imperative for customizing meal plans. The key to successful nutrition counseling is determining the macronutrient ratio of protein, carbohydrate, fat ratio based on lean body mass, Basal Metabolic Rate, Activities of Daily Living calories and calories utilized by Cardio and Resistance Exercise. BMI is not accurate since it is simply a height weight relationship and does not take into consideration lean muscle, body water, cartilage, and bone. Body composition analysis is much more accurate for determining risk for diseases and overall health.
Body composition analysis is imperative during weight loss and weight gain to minimize lean muscle loss in weight loss and maximizing lean muscle gain in weight gain and sports nutrition. Body composition analysis is important for providing clinical meal plans when managing blood sugars are important and coordinating clinical meal plans and having the ability to provide a sliding scale carbohydrate is paramount. The Lifestyle Nutrition Turn-key Metabolic Counseling Program for Doctors specializes with providing the correct amount of macronutrients (Carbs. Protein Fats) with specific food combinations based on body composition and activity level. Using body composition analysis data to provide clinical meal plans are especially important with Cancer, Diabetes, Pre-Diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome, Cardiac, Hypertension, Lipid Management, PCOS, Inflammation, Hunger Management, Fatigue, Fatty Liver, Hypothyroid, GI – IBS, GERD, Immune Function and many more diseases and pre-diseases.

“Generic Diet Sheets do not work, they are too general and patient compliance is low.”
As a busy Holistic Chiropractor practicing for many years. I do not have the time to make up a nutrition program and most programs are not flexible to accommodate my clinical philosophy and patient demographic.[show_more more=”Read More” less=”show less”]Now with the Lifestyle Nutrition Metabolic Analyzer and meal planning software I generate an additional $250 K annually with minimal involvement from me. My patients like knowing which specific foods to eat and patient compliance is improved because they are not hungry with cravings anymore. Most Chiropractors in my are selling supplements so I get a significant amount if referrals into the practice from patients who have tried all the diet products, hormones and supplements.[/show_more]
As an Endocrinologist I am happy to finally provide my patients with a nutrition program that focuses on normal healthy food, personalized exercises while incorporating long – term lifestyle changes that are much more individualized than a booklet or diet sheet handout for my patients.[show_more more=”Read More” less=”show less”]Before my patients were not receptive and did not comply to my diet handouts and suggestions. Now my medical assistant provides our patients with specific food recommendations rather than just teaching the traditional carb gram counting or food group counting. Our patients like we can include specific Southern or ethnic foods in their meal plan. Now surprisingly, my patients are more receptive to changing their eating habits with the Lifestyle Metabolic approach to nutrition counseling.[/show_more]
