Are protein bars good for fat loss?

By Diet, Muscle, Nutrition, Press

Protein bars are popular because they’re convenient, and they make it easy to get your protein fix without having to cook or even think about it.

But are they actually good for you? Are they good for fat loss?

What’s inside protein bars?

Protein bars are often marketed as a healthy snack option for people who want to lose weight or maintain their weight because they contain fewer calories than regular candy bars or other sweet treats.

Most protein bars contain 150-400 calories and 10-20 grammes of protein per serving, though some contain closer to 30 grammes of protein per serving.

The protein source of the could be varies. Some of them could come from dairy products like yoghurt, whey, and milk; some of them could be mostly plant-based products like soybeans and nuts.

This convenient feature of high-protein foods has demonstrated why it has become a gym rat favourite, as it helps them save time while ensuring adequate protein intake per day.

Are protein bars good for fat loss?

Eating fewer calories than your body uses and needs in a day is the main key to fat loss.

Protein bars can be beneficial for fat loss when used properly as a meal replacement to reduce your calorie intake. One example of calorie reduction is replacing a 650-calorie burger set meal with a 200-calorie protein bar.

However, replacing only one of your meals throughout the day is generally recommended. Replacing more than one meal may result in an excessively low calorie diet, which may result in a weight loss rebound effect.

According to a study, people who follow a low-calorie diet may experience short-term weight loss benefits, but most of them regained fat mass, particularly in the visceral area. To prevent weight loss rebound and detrimental health effect, think twice before overly restricting your calories.

In addition, some of the protein bars contain a lot of sugar and use unhealthy sweeteners like high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), which has been linked to an increased risk of chronic diseases if consumed on a regular basis.

By reading the ingredient list carefully, you would be able to determine how the protein bars could fit into your fat loss diet.

Are protein bars the best source of protein?

Protein bars aren’t the only way to increase your protein intake. To meet your protein needs and promote a healthy lifestyle, it is a good idea to include whole foods that are high in protein in your meals and snacks.

World Health Organization (WHO) establishes 0.83 g of protein per kg of body weight per day as the Safe Level of Protein (SLP), which is expected to meet the protein needs of 97.5 percent of the world’s healthy adult population.

Protein requirement for each population

However, protein requirements may be higher for pregnant women, body builders, and the elderly. You may consult a physician and a clinical dietitian to learn more about how much protein you need based on your current health.

Check your improvement over time

However, it is still preferable to monitor your body fat and muscle changes on a regular basis to determine whether your current diet and lifestyle are effective enough.

Disabilities: Why body composition monitoring is important?

By BIA, Body Composition, Case Studies, Press

This webpage content is intended for Healthcare Professionals only, not for general public.

The International Day of Persons with Disabilities is celebrated on December 3rd, with one of the goals being to promote support for the well-being of people with disabilities.

A body composition test is an important part of monitoring people with disabilities’ health and well-being. Due to the distinct health issues that many people with disabilities face, such as limb paralysis and restricted mobility. A consistent measurement of body composition changes such as lean mass, body fat, and body water is also critical for their health.

Caring people with disabilities' health is important

Why body composition of people with disabilities should be monitored consistently?

In comparison to the general population, people with disabilities often have lower levels of health awareness and have more difficulty managing their health.

According to a study, the prevalence of obesity among young people with intellectual disabilities (ID) was nearly twice as high as the general population.

People with ID are more prone to obesity, which can lead to a variety of metabolic, pulmonary, and cardiovascular diseases. This emphasises the significance of regular body composition tests for their health awareness and caregiver attention.

Some stroke survivors experience disabilities often have unhealthy lifestyle which is the main cause of stroke development. Body composition tests that raise their awareness is necessary for their post-stroke lifestyle modifications and ongoing well-being in the future.

Challenges in monitoring body composition for people with disabilities

Raising health awareness among people with mental and developmental disabilities may be challenging if complex explanations are made. Meanwhile, you may find it difficult to effectively communicate with patients using the complex results from sophisticated machines.

Particularly, it can be challenging to predict the total caloric need of people with disabilities because it may not be determined in the same manner as the general population. Understanding body composition readings like Fat-Free Mass is crucial to helping you determine a patient’s daily calorie requirements. This would make it easier to develop more personalized fat loss program that work for people with disabilities.

On the other hand, most body composition measurements using BIA devices are taken in standing posture. You’re likely worried that not all people with disabilities will find it convenient to stand for a few minute measurements. Meanwhile, some people with disabilities may have had limbs amputated, making it more difficult to monitor their body composition. Therefore, it can be challenging to find a body composition analyzer that can be perform accurately with different measurement postures and available for amputees.

Please consult your healthcare professional for the interpretation of result and diagnosis.

How InBody support the people with disabilities in Yokohama City, Japan ?

Yokohoma City’s Rapport Kamiooka provides a “health promotion programme” with the assistance of a qualified medical staff for people with disabilities. They had demonstrated the effectiveness of InBody S10 in their program.

InBody S10 had been used for subjects with physical disabilities as it can measure body composition in standing, seated, and lying positions. They used InBody S10 for people who are unable to hold the hand electrode due to arm paralysis or who are unable to maintain a standing position due to leg problems.

Planning a diet for a disabled person who has conditions like high blood pressure and diabetes is challenging. They discovered that InBody offers some helpful readings in calorie intake calculation, which is crucial in ensuring the disabled person consumes the required nutrients. Therefore, they frequently use the reading of body weight and InBody’s basal metabolic rate, and adjust the amount of diet by keeping an eye on disabled persons’ muscle and fat mass.

Rapport Kamiooka consulting their patient body composition with InBody result sheet printed

With the printed test results, the physician could communicate with patients who have severe intellectual disabilities (ID) more effectively. Meanwhile, the team’s physical instructor has noticed that people with ID primarily move their lower bodies through walks and do not consciously train their upper bodies. This reflects the fact that their upper bodies and trunks typically have less muscle mass in InBody result sheet. With this discovery, he intentionally adds upper body exercise to each patient’s training.

A delightful results is observed after 3 months of this programs. A total of 110 people with physical, intellectual, and mental disabilities had found with positive body composition changes. Their overall muscle mass was maintained, while the Body Weight, Body Fat Mass, and Percent Body Fat decreased by an average of 1.3kg, 1.4kg, and 1.2% respectively.

In summary, regular body composition tests are crucially important for people with disabilities. The changes in their body composition are strongly related to their well-being and the effectiveness of the care they receive. A quick and accurate body composition measurement of different postures could revolutionise the way health care professionals provide medical check up and give disabled people the chance to learn more about their own health.

As you know, InBody has been striving to develop a body composition analyzer that can be used by everyone—even people with disabilities! There’s a new version of body water analyzer, BWA 2.0 is able to provide the cell’s function evaluation by measuring the cell’s integrity and structure with enhanced body water measurement accuracy. This could provide you the insight of which patients with disability may requires extra medical attention based on their body composition results.

How often should you test body composition?

By BIA, Blog, Body Composition, Fat mass, Nutrition, Press

When it comes to weight loss, most people often use a weighing scale to track their progress. However, for better progress tracking, you need to test body composition rather than just weight loss monitoring.

Let’s say you’ve just started a new workout routine recently. Every morning, you eagerly weigh yourself to monitor your progress. Unfortunately, the static number shown on the scale could be truly upsetting.

An upset man is holding a weighing scale.

Without a doubt, weight measurements are used frequently in to track weigh loss. However, even though the number on the scale has remained the same, you might not be aware that your body has undergone some changes.

The scale counts everything, including your bones, muscles, organs, fat, and every sip of water and food you consume. In other words, weighing scales cannot differentiate what you’re gaining (which might just be water) or losing (which might be muscle).

Here’s where the body composition measurement comes in. Simply put, your body’s composition is the sum of its amounts of fat, muscle, bone, and water. Body composition analysis determines your body’s proportions of fat mass and lean mass by looking beyond your weight and the traditional Body Mass Index (BMI).

How to test your body composition?

There are many ways to test your body compositionSome are quick and simple but only offer basic information. Some tests need to be administered by a qualified technician and are time-consuming and expensive.

InBody devices measure your body composition using a technique known as Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA), which divides your weight into different components such as lean body mass and fat mass to assess health and nutrition.

How often should you test the body composition?

When deciding how often to test your body composition, take into account your goal, timeframe, and whether you are currently following to a new wellness or dietary program. If you are actively involved in a wellness or fitness program, you may notice changes within 3-4 weeks.

A study observed body fat mass reductions of up to 2.5kg for 48 obese adults under a 2-week nutrition program with nutrition drink supplementation in conjunction with body composition monitoring using InBody.

Therefore, if you’re actively engaging in a new lifestyle change, it’s recommended that you take the InBody test every two weeks. Dedicated effort and precisely measured results can often inspire you to persevere to reach your fitness goal. If your fitness goal timeframe is longer, you may consider taking the test less frequently.

Meanwhile, it is recommended that you only use one measurement method and same machine for your body composition test on your fitness journey. You might be able to obtain the results more precisely in this mannerThis is because various types of body composition test machines may use varied measurement techniques.

The study also discovered that movie jump scares are the best calorie-burners since they elevate heart rates. But, as much as we hate to break it to you, there are some things you should be aware of.

The evidence in this study is insufficient because it was conducted on a relatively small sample size (only 10 persons) and the research has not yet been peer-reviewed. In other words, the study’s findings weren’t taken seriously.

Do you burn calories from watching horror movie? 

The terrifying scenes in horror films may elevate your heart rate and cause you to burn slightly more calories than if you sat quietly. The calories burn also greatly depends on your own metabolism and body composition.

Losing visceral fat is important for diabetics

Lose visceral fat – Why is losing visceral fat important for diabetics?

By Blog, Diabetes, Fat mass, Press

It’s World Diabetes Day on November 14. Speaking of diabetes, people frequently assume that the only treatment for diabetics is medication. It is frequently overlooked how important it is for diabetics to adopt a lifestyle dedicated to lose visceral fat to improve blood glucose control.

Only overweight individuals develop diabetes?

Diabetes patients who are normal weight or underweight should also be given attention when it comes to losing body fat, rather than just diabetics who are obese.

According to a research article published, the researchers discovered that the visceral fat cell sizes of lean diabetics were larger, which is related to the development of diabetes.

What is visceral fat?

There are two types of body fat in our body – subcutaneous fat and visceral fat. Subcutaneous fat is what you feel when you poke your stomach because it is soft and close to the skin. However, visceral fat cannot be felt because it surrounds your organs beneath your abdominal wall.

Visceral fat, commonly known as belly fat, is extremely dangerous in large amounts and has been linked to a number of health complications, including type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndrome, high blood pressure, and others.

How is visceral fat related to diabetes?

Having a lot of visceral fat is associated to insulin resistance. According to the findings, visceral fat secretes retinol-binding protein 4 (RBP4), which has been shown to cause insulin resistance.

Insulin resistance occurs when your body cells in the muscles, fat, and liver do not respond well to insulin in order to absorb glucose from the blood. The pancreas continues to produce insulin in an attempt to get cells to respond.

When the pancreas eventually can’t keep up, blood sugar levels keep rising, which can cause type 2 diabetes and glucose intolerance. 

How can you check if you have a lot of visceral fat?

 Here are three options:

  1. Waist measurement

Checking your waist circumference is a convenient tool that can be done by using cutoff points for Asians (90 cm for men and 80 cm for women). However, measuring with a tape measure along the fat loss progress may not be consistent and may underestimate your visceral fat loss.

  1. Computed tomography (CT) scan

A computed tomography (CT) scan allows for the accurate analysis of subcutaneous and visceral fat separately. However, this requires access to a facility that has a unit, and a test can be costly. On top of that, you might need to be exposed to radiation.

  1. Professional Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA)

A medical BIA test is an excellent alternative to a CT scan. This test calculate your body fat percentage, which includes visceral fat, by measuring the resistance of an electric current as it moves through your body. 

This method would allow you to understand your visceral fat in a noninvasive, low-cost, and radiation-free manner. An InBody test, one of the professional BIA tests, can help you understand your visceral fat and take the first step toward changing your lifestyle for the better.

How to lose visceral fat as a diabetics?

According to the study, a combination of diet and exercise can result in a 12.8% reduction in visceral fat and a 16% decrease in fasting glucose levels in people with type 2 diabetes. It also matters what kind of exercise is most effective to lose visceral fat and improve diabetes control.

Furthermore, take your medication as prescribed by your doctor and monitor your blood glucose levels and visceral fat on a regular basis. If you learn that reducing visceral fat is beneficial to your blood glucose condition as a diabetic, this may keep you motivated to lead a healthier life.

Can tea help with fat loss?

Can tea help with fat-burning?

By Press

Tea is a beverage that has been enjoyed for centuries in various countries and cultures around the world. This flavorful beverage had been promoted for its various health benefits, including its fat-burning effect. 

Can tea help with fat loss?

Is this a myth or a real magical remedy that can help us lose fat? 

This exciting fat-burning effects had been shown through a research to occur in humans. In this study, 30 Taiwaneses showed fat loss of 0.82 kg after 6 weeks of drinking catechin-rich green tea with inulin. Surprisingly, the fat mass loss sustained even they stopped the consumption for two weeks.

What is the mysterious health effect ingredient in your tea cup? 

Tea’s main health-promoting substance are polyphenols, specifically catechins and epicatechins. According to laboratory and animal studies, these molecules have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. These health benefits could even protect you from increased risk for diabetes and cardiovascular disease according to the large group studies conducted by Harvard University.

How tea helps in fat-burning? 

So, what exactly is fat-burning? Does it mean to literally burn your fat cells with fire? That appears to be quite intimidating. Instead, fat-burning refers to the process of breaking down your body fat in order to use the energy released by your fat cells. 

Fat-burning

At this point, the tea’s caffeine kicks in. Your evening tea can actually stimulate lipolysis, or fat-burning. The caffeine in the tea could favors the breakdown of the fat cells in our bodies, which can then be used as energy. 

Meanwhile, the process to burn the fat requires energy too and the process of this burning effect are known as metabolism. This metabolism could be in a higher or lower rate depending on our diet, genes and body composition. The caffeine in our cup of tea and it may signal to our body to burn more calories. 

In fact, studies have demonstrated that this metabolism-stimulating effect occurs in people. In this study, caffeine in green tea stimulates metabolism to burn fat with 150 mg caffeine/600 mg catechins , or roughly 3 cups of tea, in a dose-dependent manner. 

Does the tea in my “boba” have a similar fat-burning effect? 

The majority of boba teas contain green tea or other types of tea extract, but they also commonly contain excessive amounts of sweetener syrup and creamer, which could negate the health benefits of the tea.  

Positive energy balance—the state in which we consume more calories than we need—is the key factor in why we gain body fat. The extra calories consequently will be stored as body fat in our bodies rather than being used as daily energy. 

When we drink boba tea, the high calorie beverage with a high sugar level contributes to a positive calorie energy balance, which outweighs the potential health effects of tea. 

A cup of oolong tea has a few calories on its own, but the alarmingly high sugar content of “boba” could certainly negate the tea’s ability to boost metabolism. 

To get the desired health benefits, how many cups of tea should I consume? 

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recommends a daily caffeine intake of up to 400 mg for healthy adults in order to be considered safe for consumption. However, it is advised that women who are pregnant, trying to get pregnant, or who are nursing should keep their daily caffeine intake to under 200 mg. This is a safe dosage that won’t harm the growing baby or the developing foetus in any way. Moreover, 100 mg of caffeine per day is the safest dose for teenagers between the ages of 12 and 18.

As the advantages of drinking tea are now clear to you. So remember to have 2-3 cup of green tea the following morning if you want to reduce your body fat, and perhaps even improve tomorrow’s gym session. 

How does InBody 970 assess if I’m burning body fat effectively?

It’s fascinating to learn and understand how consuming tea might aid in fat-burning. However, in order to comprehend how much fat is effectively lowered by consuming tea, you need an exact assessment to determine how much fat has been lost.

Does Weightlifting Causes Women To “Look Bulky” ?

By Press

Many women believe that resistance exercise causes weight gain and a “bulky appearance.” Yes, strength training can lead to weight gain. You can almost certainly count on that. That is, nevertheless, totally acceptable. If the gains you’re seeing are in Lean Body Mass, your weight may stay the same or even rise, but you’ll appear more lean and toned.

Muscle is denser than fat, meaning it takes up less space on your body. By losing fat and gaining muscle, you can stay the same weight–or even gain some–but actually, be slimmer than you were before. Think of weight training as an investment that pays serious dividends down the road. The more muscle you have, the more visceral fat in your body can burn over time.

“Healthy” is not a number on the scale—it’s how you look and feel. So don’t think in terms of what you want to lose and focus more on what you want to gain, both physically and emotionally. Etch this thought deep into your brain: as long as you’re noticing positive changes in how you look and feel, that arbitrary number on the scale doesn’t make a bit of difference. In fact, the number on the scale is likely to lead you astray.

The first step toward achieving a healthy level of lean body mass is to do a body composition analysis to determine how much you have. Click here to read more about the various types of BIA devices that analyse body composition.
