The Inbody machine can accurately detect your metabolism. Metabolism is defined as the calories your body needs to sustain itself daily. This does not include exercise calories. For example, if your metabolism is 1,300 calories per day and you ate that many calories daily, you would maintain your weight.
The basal metabolic rate is based upon the muscle mass you carry and the % body fat you carry. The higher percent body fat, the slower the metabolism. The higher percent muscle mass, the faster the metabolism.
Understanding your basal metabolic rate helps us determine whether you have a “normal” metabolism for your age. It also helps you track your caloric intake during weight loss maintenance to make sure you are not consuming more than your body needs.
