On a diet it is not only important to lose weight, but how you lose it!
In Tisanoreica, through the activation of the metabolic state of ketosis that occurs during the Intensive Phase, the body is forced towards a selective use of fat for energy consumption.
Thanks to the use of the precise bioelectrical impedance analysis, it is possible to monitor this change in fat mass exactly and keep the body composition controlled over time. In less than a minute, in an upright position and without adhesive electrodes, you can measure your parameters of:
• Body Mass Index (BMI):
The BIA Tanita, being also a medically certified scale, is able to automatically provide the calculation of the BMI, which is the ratio between the weight in kg and the square of the height in meters. The BMI is the most widely used index worldwide to define the degree of overweight/obesity (an individual is considered overweight if the BMI>25).
• Fat mass (FM):
A certain amount of fat is necessary as an energy reserve and as a protection of internal organs. An FM value of 15-23% of body weight is a healthy value for a good physical shape.
• Lean mass (LM):
Lean Mass includes everything that is not body fat (protein, water, minerals and glycogen) and a good LM value is 77-85% of body weight.
• Muscle mass (MMusc):
Muscle Mass corresponds to about 40% of the lean body mass. It increases through stimulation by carrying out regular physical activity and by eating appropriately, leading to an increase in the basal metabolic rate.
• Total water:
Total body water represents on average 60-62% of the weight in men and 56-58% in women. Total water is the main component of the LM. Its percentage on LM can vary from 67.4% to 77.5% depending on age and nutritional status.
• Visceral fat index:
Visceral adipose tissue (VAT) is fat that accumulates in the abdominal cavity and around internal organs. VAT is believed to have a greater likelihood of causing lifestyle-related diseases than subcutaneous adipose tissue (SCAT), therefore knowing and periodically controlling the risk of VAT accumulation represents an important guide in the prevention of lifestyle-related diseases.
• Phase angle:
Electrical parameter that expresses the proportion between the intracellular and extracellular space. It is linked directly to the integrity of cell membranes. In a healthy individual, the phase angle value fluctuates between 5 and 7 degrees. The phase angle decreases when the cell mass decreases and is useful for assessing the nutritional status.
