Body Composition: Projecting 3D Results for Personalized Weight Management

Advice for those aiming to lose weight has traditionally been, “cut calories.” The idea that one must expend more energy than he or she consumes in order to lose weight has been accepted for many years; however, recent studies by Logan University’s own Robert Davidson, PhD, suggest that balancing energy may not be the most important factor in managing bodyweight.

According to Dr. Davidson, director of the Master’s in Nutrition & Human Performance program at Logan, the most influential contributor to weight management and the related obesity epidemic is diet composition—the makeup of the calories one consumes.

“A calorie is still a calorie, but it doesn’t take much to change body composition with macronutrient consumption changes,” he explains. "Macronutrients include fats, carbohydrates and proteins.” 

Capitalizing on the impact diet composition has on body composition, Dr. Davidson and his team have developed technology that accurately measures a person’s body composition and projects an image of what the person’s body will look like in the future based on either current or planned inputs such as dietary habits, physical activity levels and current bodyweight and shape. 

For example, if someone desires to lose weight and plans to follow a specific diet and exercise plan, he or she can scan their body in the software with a 3-D scanner, input his or her diet and exercise plans and select the duration of the plans. Then the software produces a projected image of the person’s post weight-loss body. The resulting projection details his or her weight loss in pounds as well as the number of inches he or she can expect to lose from each specific area of the body...and up to five years in the future. 

“Right now, we can provide all the data required for this technology—predicting weight and inches lost and making diet and training recommendations,” said Dr. Davidson. “No one else is doing anything like this.” 

Dr. Davidson and his team have garnered a significant amount of interest in their project. They are seeking additional funding to develop the software for the 3-D modeling and mobile application for users.

“I’m thrilled to be a part of Logan’s development as one of the first nutrition programs to elevate technology for changing body composition,” he said. “And what’s more – making it accessible to the public.”
