If you’ve been considering losing weight, now is the perfect time. The Doc is running a 6 week challenge to give your body a chance to reap all the benefits of a lighter and healthier lifestyle. And, no matter where you're located around Australia, you can join the Doc now and start managing your lifestyle and accomplish your weight and health goals.
For years, Dr Phillip Wuth, Founder of The Doctor's Kitchen Australia has been helping people lose weight and improve their overall health. Many people who have struggled for years with excess weight know that the hardest and often the most frustrating job is not getting it off but keeping it off.
Unlike ordinary scales that record only body weight, the Doctor’s segmental body composition scales provides additional data such as body fat, abdominal fat, muscle mass and basal metabolic rate (BMR) (the number of calories your body burns at rest).
New research has found that these are the numbers that matter and can be can be the key to losing weight — and keeping it off.
Whether your metabolism is slow or fast, you can lose weight if you know what to do.
Our prescribing Doctors can now reliably measure your body fat and muscle mass including your BMR at rest and recommend a daily calorie intake per day for you that will see you reduce your body fat mass for long term health.
The segmental body composition scales that our prescribing Doctors use, check and measure body fat and muscle mass in 5 areas of the body, including your arms, legs, and abdomen, for a close, detailed look on each body zone and also have handle bars for greater accuracy of results.
No matter what you weigh, the higher percentage of body fat you have, the more likely you are to develop obesity-related diseases, including heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, and type 2 diabetes, but luckily it's a problem our Doctors can help you directly solve.
When it comes to losing weight and keeping it off, the key is to eat fewer calories than you expend and to monitor your vital stats like body fat and muscle mass. If you do this, AND combine this with resistance training exercises, you will see your body fat drop.
When you take in fewer calories than you expend, during exercise and rest, your body burns your fat reserves. Be sensible, however — if you eat too few calories or cut out all carbohydrates, the weight you lose will likely be fluids and muscle, not fat. In this case the scale will go down, but your body fat percentage will go up, rendering you less healthy and more likely to put the weight back on.
Without understanding your BMR at rest, you could be eating too much or not enough which will affect your weight loss goals and or compromise your muscle and overall health.
