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.
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.

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.

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.

Louis Robinson, a surgeon at a children’s hospital in England, tested some 60 infants—many within an hour of birth—by having them hang from a suspended “walking stick.” With only two exceptions, according to one report, the infants were able to hang on, sustaining “the weight of their body for at least ten seconds.”9 Many could do it for upward of a minute.

This paper documents lean muscle mass gains by athletes on a caloric deficit with a higher than RDA protein intake. Despite the popular myth that one can't build muscle and lose fat at the same time, this paper says otherwise, as do the hundreds of clients I've scanned that have demonstrated the same trick. Cool stuff!
