How Does a Body Scan Support My Weight Loss and Health Goals?

You’d never start a road trip without a map — why start your weight loss journey any differently?

For most people, losing weight is an incredibly frustrating pilgrimage. And if you’re working with inferior, outdated numbers, arriving at your destination can seem almost impossible. 

However, you can navigate more easily with a full body scan before starting.

In this blog, our team of weight loss treatment experts at Transformed Medical Weight Solutions in Brooklyn, New York, details how this fast, noninvasive procedure can give you a leg up in losing stubborn weight. 

Information overload

If you’re still using a bathroom scale or typing your weight, height, and age into an online body mass index (BMI) calculator, you’re doing weight loss wrong. 

The scale and your BMI can tell you some details about your current body composition, but they don’t give you the full picture.

That’s why we recommend a body scan. With a simple scan, we can visually represent your body’s internal tissues and assess how much body fat, muscle, and bone tissue you have. 

This is priceless information for those trying to lose weight, boost muscle, improve bone health, and overall improve their wellness. 

Goal-setting optimization

Without a body scan, you’re more likely to pick an arbitrary weight loss goal. Many of our patients come to us with the idea of losing X number of pounds, but their focus shifts after they have a body scan. 

We can fine-tune your objectives, turning them from a random number of pounds to specific fat loss and muscle gain goals. 

Body scans even help us create optimal nutrition, weight loss, and exercise programs customized exactly to your needs. 

Chronic disease details

Body scans give you detailed feedback on your risk for certain chronic diseases based on the amounts of fat, muscle, and bone you have. With this information, we can tailor your program to focus on disease prevention. 

Feedback and monitoring

One of the main reasons our patients love body scans is for the feedback they get throughout their journey. Before, you may have weighed in every few days and been disappointed by the numbers. 

With body scans, even if your weight doesn't change much, you can see other encouraging data, such as muscle gain and fat loss. 

We also use the feedback to make necessary adjustments in your program to keep your results going. 

I got my body scan — now what?

Getting a body scan is a great place to start your weight loss journey — but you shouldn’t stop there. We offer various services, including semaglutide injections, a medical weight loss program, nutritional counseling, and weight loss injections to help you at every step of your weight loss. 

Losing weight can be a struggle if you try to go it alone. That’s where our experts come in. If you want to start your weight loss journey on the right foot, call our friendly staff or use our online booking tool to schedule a consultation at our office today.
