The ‘Nutri Path’ aims to assess body composition, analyze and delve into dietary habits to gain awareness of one’s dietary choices, improve them, and establish a personalized diet based on specific needs (health, weight loss, muscle mass gain, special diets).
On day 1, the Body Composition Check + Metabolic Check are performed; the following day, the food diary compilation begins; on day 7, the diary is submitted, followed by a nutritional visit and the establishment of a personalized diet. This pattern repeats monthly for the three months following the initial appointment.
The purpose of body composition assessment is to detect, monitor over time, and potentially correct, body composition and dietary habits in order to take preventive or corrective actions, leading to an improvement in quality of life.
Body composition assessment is a simple, fast, non-invasive test that includes a preliminary investigation of dietary habits, anthropometric measurements, and the use of a bioimpedance scale for body weight measurement and body composition analysis.
Overweight and obesity, distinguished by the biometric data BMI, are defined by the World Health Organization as conditions of abnormal or excessive accumulation of body fat that pose a health risk.
Excess weight is caused by an imbalance between calorie intake and energy expenditure, with a preference for the former, leading to both short-term and long-term health consequences. Genetic, endocrine-metabolic, environmental factors, and the use of certain medications should also be considered.
Obesity and overweight are conditions associated with high mortality rates and are significant risk factors for major chronic diseases, including cardiovascular diseases (especially heart attacks and strokes), hypertension, type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and some forms of cancer.
In males, android or apple-shaped obesity prevails (excess fat concentrated in the face, neck, shoulders, and especially in the abdomen above the navel). This predisposes to an increased incidence of conditions such as diabetes, hypertriglyceridemia, and hypertension.
In females, gynoid or pear-shaped obesity prevails (excess fat concentrated in the hips, buttocks, thighs, and abdomen below the navel). This predisposes to a higher incidence of venous insufficiency, knee osteoarthritis, and cellulite.
Metabolic Check is a non-invasive quantitative test that allows the measurement of parameters such as blood pressure, blood glucose, total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, and cardiovascular risk within a few minutes.
To prevent the onset of conditions such as diabetes and cerebro/cardiovascular diseases or monitor their progression over time.
The test is performed through a capillary blood sample.
Result time: 45 seconds – 2 minutes
A food diary is a tool that allows you to daily record every single food item, mealtime, the quantities consumed, and any notes (e.g., emotional state) to be reported to the nutritionist.
In addition to increasing awareness of one’s dietary habits, a food diary serves as the starting point for establishing a personalized meal plan.
A nutritional consultation allows the specialist to assess a person’s lifestyle, dietary habits, overall health status, any medical conditions, and the goals to be achieved together through the preparation of a personalized nutrition plan. It is recommended after undergoing one of the tests in the nutritional area, particularly after completing a food diary.
