What is DNA and how does it impact my weight management goals?
DNA stands for deoxyribonucleic acid. Your DNA carries all the instructions for the structure and function of every cell in your body. Although DNA plays a major role in all life processes, we test for specific “markers” in your DNA profile that determine how you respond to different foods and physical activities. By learning which of these are best for your body, you’re likely to lose weight and keep it off more easily than with other programs. Clinical research has shown that people on a program appropriate for their genetic profiles can lose up to 76% more weight, according to a two-year randomized trial: Preventing Overweight Using Novel Dietary Strategies (Pounds Lost), Circulation 124, 563-71, 2011.

What is a BCA?
BCA stands for Body Composition Analysis . Your BCA assesses the proportion of lean tissue to fat in your body using bioelectrical impedance. BCAs also identify visceral fat in your body, which surround your organs and lead to chronic disease. Your BCA results help your Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) create the groundwork and success benchmarks for an effective nutrition and weight loss plan.

Will I feel anything during my BCA?
What can I learn from my own BCA?
Why are BCAs important in your program?
Not only do BCAs help us learn about your current body composition and calorie needs, but Personalized Nutrition Concierges RDNs also use BCAs to monitor progress and set goals throughout your health and nutrition program. For those with goals to increase their athletic performance, BCAs help determine the effectiveness of your training program so you can optimize it accordingly.
What stats can I learn from my BCA results?
Why should I worry about visceral fat?
If you have an unhealthy amount of visceral fat in your body, all is not lost! Visceral fat is broken down easily by the right diet and increased physical activity.
