What is BCA?bmi-graphic
BCA stands for body composition analysis.  A BCA involves a series of tests to measure the ratio of different tissues within the body such as percentages of muscle, water, and fat.  These numbers can then be used to determine how healthy your body currently is and to monitor the body through changes that occur with treatment.  Center for Wellness offers BCAs in our office – call for an appointment to get  yours!

What is BMI?
BMI uses height and weight to indirectly estimate body composition.  It is one of most common and cheapest of several tests that can be used as a screen for obesity.  It does not account for muscle mass, gender, or ethnicity, however, and is not recommended as the sole measure of obesity evaluation.

What is BMR/RMR?
BMR stands for basal metabolic rate and RMR is resting metabolic rate.  Both are estimates of how many calories you’d burn if you were to do nothing but rest for 24 hours.  It represents the minimum amount of energy needed to keep your body functioning, including breathing and keeping your heart beating and accounts for about 60% of your total daily energy requirements.  It does not include the calories you burn from normal daily activities or exercise.  What is your BMR? How many calories do YOU need?  Call Center for Wellness today for an appointment with our medical staff to find out!
