What to Expect

The Body Composition Analysis Process


Step 1: Consultation

Before you receive your body composition test, we will sit down with you in a consultation to thoroughly discuss your health history, weight issues, and current goals. We review your medications and give you a complete overview of what to expect and how to prepare for your body composition analysis.


Step 2: Body Composition Test

You should prepare for your body composition test with a few, easy-to-follow steps such as not eating, exercising, showering, or consuming alcohol or caffeine in the hours before your test. When you step onto the scale, you will align your feet with the foot electrodes, put your thumbs on the oval electrodes, and keep still until the process is complete. Our specialist will be there to guide you through the analysis.


Step 3: Follow-Up

InBody provides a detailed printout that outlines your body’s specific metrics including skeletal muscle mass and percent body fat. After receiving your results, our provider will meet with you to go over your information and develop a treatment plan.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is a body composition test safe?

Yes, the test is completely safe! It’s non-invasive and sends gentle electric currents you can’t even feel to analyze your body.

How often should I do a body composition test?

We recommend taking a body composition analysis every 2 to 4 weeks to accurately monitor your health progress.

Why does my weight fluctuate so much over a day?

Your weight fluctuates depending on how many meals and how much water you’ve had that day, as well as other factors, including exercise, bowel movements, and menstrual cycles. The body composition analysis gives you the most accurate picture of your body since it can account for factors like these in your results. We advise taking your recurrent tests under the same testing conditions for the highest accuracy.
