METABOLIC TESTING

Metabolic testing is a simple procedure. You are seated in a comfortable chair and asked to breathe into a machine for 15 minutes. The metabolic unit will measure your breath and determine the amount of oxygen your body used. This number is then converted into something you really understand - calories!
The test will tell us how many calories your body burns at rest and if your metabolism is fast, normal, or slow.
You’ll get the results of the test when you come back to our nutrition class. The class will cover how to use the results of the test and some basic, easy to understand guidelines on improving your current nutrition intake.

What are the Benefits?

  • Your Resting Metabolic Rate will be actually measured, not calculated or estimated.
  • You will know exactly how many calories your body needs each day to maintain basic body functions...breathing, temperature regulation, everyday activity, etc
  • You will learn how activity and lifestyle play a role in calculating daily caloric needs.
  • You will understand the role of exercise and the importance of maintaining lean muscle mass in terms of caloric expenditure and weight management.
  • You will learn how to balance the number of calories you eat with the number of calories you burn.
  • If you do not have certain medical conditions (which we will ask you before the test) you will receive a meal planner in your Weight Loss Zone to help you reach your goal weight.
