Staff`s nutritional program
The main objective this activity was launched was that any Caparrós Nature employee could know his/her body composition using an electric bioimpedence check. But after checking the results generated by the SPA and having a dietist in the company we thought that we could go further and apart from checking the body composition we could assess each person’s diet with precise objectives.
The procedure is as follows:
A preliminary interview is carried out to know the current eating habits of the employee. In order to do so we use tools such as reminder every 24 hours and a consumption questionnaire. An anthropometric check is conducted as well as an electric bioimpedence test. The data collected during this study were the following : • Weight • BMI • % body fat • % muscle mass• visceral fat index
With all the information gathered, our nutritionist creates a menu that has the food content based on the objectives set by the person during the interview.
After 15 days an examination is conducted, and again an anthropometric and bioimpedence test. After checking the changes in composition and weight, another menu is handed out with the necessary modifications in order not to be monotonous and thus helping to reach the goal set. Every 15 days the subject receives a new menu, we aim to give 3 menus per week containing several options and as varied as possible.
The person is given an appointment every two weeks and step II is repeated until the objectives are met.
The purpose of this activity is a bilateral scheme that not only implies the individual but also his/her familiar environment as the tools given by the company for this matter, are to be done at home mostly. Indirectly we are helping to improve our workers’health as well as their families. We record all the bioimpedence collected that contain charts to help visualising changes in weight, BMI, %fat, %muscle mass and visceral fat index in an easier way.
