87. Body Re-composition with Lauren Moss

87. What is Body Recomposition with RD Lauren Moss Podcast Image

In This Episode

Our favorite registered dietitian, Lauren Moss, is here with us again.  In addition to being a part of the EA Coaching team, she is also a single mom to her son and works full-time in a clinical setting.

Body composition can seem pretty confusing when you’re starting out on your weight loss journey.  

There are a lot of different metrics out there, but when it comes down to it, the goals and priorities that mean the most are based on regular, everyday things like wanting to feel comfortable in our clothes or being able to go shopping and not end up in tears in the dressing room.

We want to make it to the end of the day, playing with our kids and not yelling at them because we’re tired and achy and sore and irritable. We want to have the energy to get through our workday.

We want to enjoy our lives.

If your goal, like most of us, is to look and feel good and move without pain and have energy, then that’s not really riding on a specific number.

It’s also why we talk so much about non-scale victories.  Maybe you’ve experienced a period of time where you aren’t seeing results on the scale, but you know that your clothes fit better.  

This is what body recomposition is all about. It means changing the ratio of lean mass to fat mass in your body.

In this episode, Lauren and I discuss the approach to weight loss that emphasizes the importance of not only losing fat, but also gaining muscle.

We also touch on how changes in your body composition look differently at different stages of your weight loss journey, non-scale methods of tracking your progress and common myths and misconceptions about body composition.
