We’re hosting an event on January 10, 2024 at 6 pm in our new training center to help you set weight loss goals and achieve them through a customized weight loss and nutrition program with Dr. Orbeck and our new in-house nutritionist, Lauren Kroeger. Each program will run for 60 days.
Hormones and Weight
Hormones play an important role in body composition, because they regulate processes in the body, including metabolism and energy balance, which can impact weight. Lifestyle factors such as diet, exercise, sleep, and stress management can influence hormone levels and, consequently, weight regulation.

What is the InBody?
The InBody is a new device we’ll have in our office in 2024. It is a body composition analyzer that is designed to provide detailed information about an individual’s body composition. These devices use bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) to assess the proportions of different body tissues, including muscle, fat, and water.
How does the InBody work?
Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA)
The InBody device sends a low-level electrical current through the body. Since water conducts electricity, the current flows more easily through tissues that have a high water content, such as muscle. Conversely, fat tissue, which contains less water, resists the flow of the electrical current. Several readings will be taken for areas throughout the body.
The InBody device measures the impedance (resistance) of the electrical current as it passes through the body. Based on these measurements, the device can estimate the amounts of lean body mass (muscle and other tissues) and fat mass.
The InBody provides a breakdown of body composition, typically including metrics such as total body weight, lean body mass, body fat percentage, and water balance. Some models may also provide segmental analysis, offering information about the composition of different body segments (for example: arms, legs, trunk).
