Eat and drink normally. Exercise as normal but avoid any extreme exercise sessions on the day prior to scan.
After the scan we will send you a link to download a free app where you can access your scan results. The App also has explanatory notes and videos. With review scans, all your body composition data can be tracked in comparative tables so you get a complete picture of progress. .
After your scan we will explain scan results including body composition data and energy and macronutrient suggestions..
It is best to have the scan in a rested and fasted state eg. no food, fluid or exercise before hand. If you forget and have something eg coffee then do the same for any subsequent scans.
Where practically possible, avoid exercise on the day of the scan before the scan. Save exercise session for afterwards.
Keep a record of food and fluid intake and repeat for any subsequent scans. Cease eating and drinking at least 4 hours prior to scan unless medically required.
Where loose, light clothing. If you do not have this available, we will provide a disposable gown for you to wear.
