TEAL Program Mission: Through education, follow-up and support, the TEAL Nutrition Program provides nutrition counseling and education in a compassionate and confidential manner to promote healthier habits across the lifespan.
Nutrition counseling using Diet Analysis Plus software and body composition analysis using the InBody 570 machine are both provided by the student lab assistants.
The Diet Analysis Plus software provides nutrition information to adjust your diet and to gain a better understanding of how nutrition relates to your personal health goals.
The InBody 570 test uses electrical impedance of three different frequencies to test five body segments and has been scientifically verified to be 98 percent as accurate as DEXA (Dual-Energy X-Ray Absorptiometry) without any exposure to radiation. The InBody 570 analyses an individual's body composition in terms of water, fat, protein, muscle and bone minerals. The device is also accurate in terms of the lean muscle in each limb, the amount and percentage of body fat, and bone mineral content. Testing time is less than one minute.
