Want to know your exact percent fat and muscle mass? Need help with your bone density or daily caloric needs? Come and see me!
Bodycomp offers a new way to look at your body. Our scans tell you how much lean tissue (muscle), fat and bone your body is composed of. Those three components added together make up your total weight. Using this information we will calculate your percent fat, bone density, and your muscle symmetry.
We calculate how many calories your body burns per day based upon your muscle mass and activity level. Learn how many calories you should be eating to lose fat, maintain your weight or to increase muscle mass.
DXA scans are considered the gold standard in body composition measurement. The process is safe, quick and painless. Repeat scans every three to six months will allow you to measure changes in muscle and fat mass.
Lean tissue is healthy. Excessive body fat is not. Your scales can't tell the difference, but a Bodycomp scan can.
Many clients are somewhat shocked to discover that their spine is not perfectly aligned as though it's out of a text book. It turns out that a minor scoliosis may not actually be a deficit in some sports and it's a factor in Bolt's left/right leg power differential.
nytimes.com Bolt is the fastest sprinter ever in spite of — or because of? — an uneven stride that upends conventional wisdom.
[12/01/17] My friend and colleague John Fawcus is putting on some cool FREE workshops. This weekend there is Fundamentals of Kicking and a Core Workshop. There's also a free nutrition workshop on december 17th. Please check out the posters for more detail!
This is an interesting story about how the recommended RDA for Vitamin D was miscalculated and how two Canadian statistics researchers determined that something was amiss. Science!
blogs.creighton.edu Last year (2014) saw an unusual event. Two statisticians at the University of Alberta in Ednonton, Canada (Paul Veugelers and JP Ekwaru) published a paper in the online journal Nutrients (6(10):4472-5) showing that the Institute of Medicine (IOM) had made a serious calculation error in its recommend...

Here's a nice summary of the Bodycomp experience from two of my clients, Chris and Kim. Check out the rest of their site if you'd like to be motivated and inspired. These two travel the world and find ways to train in the most unlikely locations! http://theunconventionalroute.com/dexa-scan/
theunconventionalroute.com Looking to make a measurable change to your body? Then measure it properly. Get off the scale and get yourself a DEXA scan, like we did.
This is really good - some solid data showing why having alternate days of feast and famine provides a better body composition result than steady state caloric intake. Keep an eye on this topic for more interesting data this year.
sciencedirect.com While activation of beige thermogenesis is a promising approach for treatment of obesity-associated diseases, there are currently no known pharmacological means of inducing beiging in humans. Intermittent fasting is an effective and natural strategy for weight control, but the mechanism for its effi...
For the first time ever, I find myself agreeing with the Canada food guide. Eat less sugar. Eat better quality fats. That wasn't so hard now was it folks - only took them 75 years to start getting it right.
Fun fact - the guide was originally introduced in 1942 as a way to prevent nutritional deficiencies during wartime rationing. Now that we are living in times of relative surplus and decreasing manual labour, it's more important than ever to eat your veggies every day and to be careful with calorically dense foods.
cbc.ca No more six-page booklet to leaf through and pin to the front of the fridge; the Canadian Food Guide is getting an upgrade for the smartphone era.
Another good reason to restrict total sugar consumption has come to light. This study shows a significant decrease in fat oxidation rates after eating when sugar is consumed at the same time. The effect is greater in those with high protein diets.
blogs.biomedcentral.com The next time you tuck into a protein rich dinner, it may be a good idea to hold off on the sugary drinks. A new study published in BMC Nutrition found that a combination of sugar sweetened drinks and a protein rich meal decreases metabolic efficiency, which can lead to more fat being stored. Here t...
This article focuses on lack of physical activity and activity inequality in the US. Due to our similar geography and population distribution, Canadians suffer from the same phenomenon, despite our perception of being much fitter and leaner than our Southern neighbors.
arstechnica.com Unwalkable cities, activity inequality, and obesity are a tricky blend.
This! A ketogenic diet can be useful for fat loss, insulin sensitivity recovery and many other reasons, but it's not an excuse or a validation to dramatically under-eat. http://www.nourishbalancethrive.com/blog/2017/04/13/why-your-ketogenic-diet-isnt-working-part-one-underfueling-and-overtraining/
Celiac disease is complicated enough - now it looks as though researchers have found a viral component that might trigger the immune system and lead to the full disease in those with a genetic predisposition.
arstechnica.com In people with genetic predispositions, viral infections can tip immune responses.
I know everyone is going to be googling Jai alai after seeing this. Also, I would never have guessed that a shuttlecock could go faster than a slapshot.
Veggies, fruits and herbs in their natural state before being harvested. Seeing the way that nuts grow it's no wonder that they are resource intensive, but ever so delicious.
