In this video we explain the basics of what an Inbody scan tells you and how to interpret your own report. 9 Cool Things an Inbody Scan Can Tell You that a Scale Can't Unlike a traditional scale an Inbody scan can tell you. -Your ideal weight relative to your height and weight -The total amount of muscle in your body -The total amount of fat in your body -Your Body Mass Index -Your percent body fat (this is the most important part of the test) -How much muscle you need to gain for ideal body composition -How much fat you need to lose for ideal body composition -Your lean body mass which is a decent proxy number for the grams of protein you should be consuming per day -The total amount of calories you burn per day So, it's a pretty comprehensive and informative test.

Should you count your carbs? As with everything we discuss the answer is always... it depends.
What does it depend on? It depends on your goals.
Well, let's start with a plain fact. The average American eats 300-400g of carbs a day from refined carbs while leading a sedentary lifestyle. That's an insane amount of carbohydrates from poor sources with not enough exercise.So, that's the high end.
The low end would be something like the ketogenic diet which typically goes below 25-50g of carbs a day.
The middle ground, for most people being between 75-150g of healthy carbs from vegetables and fruits is a good place to start.
When might it be a good idea to count your carbs:
-You're eating good quality food already, and you hit a weight loss plateau
-You're a hard charging athlete
-You are trying to achieve a particular body composition (six pack, fitness competition, etc.)
When do you not need to count your carbs for most people:
-You're just starting to eat healthy, focus on food quality
-If eating non-starchy vegetables (brussels sprouts, spinach, celery)
-If eating foods with more fiber than sugar (i.e., low net carbs)
