Resting Metabolism Assessment

We all know someone whose metabolism allows them to eat whatever they want and never gain an ounce.  Others may have a very low metabolic rate.  Things such as age, gender and genetics that determine metabolism cannot be changed.  

We can however change our activity level and lean mass.  'Muscle' is metabolically active.  The more of it you have, the higher your metabolism.  Alternately, extreme diets and excessive exercise tear down lean mass, which will lower your metabolism.  One simple fact; food is energy.  You use it or store it!  At the end of the day, calories in vs. calories out determine your weight.

With our Resting Energy Expenditure Analysis, you will know exactly how many calories your body expends at rest in a 24 hr. period.  Your numbers, not an estimate.  We use a medical grade gas analyzer, not an inexpensive, hand held 'gem' or 'meta-checking' device.  Your assessment results are provided to you in a detailed report and will include substrate utilization (Fat vs. Carbs burned at rest).  Are you a carb burner or a fat burner?

 

Couple this test with our VO2 testing and the Polar M400 to know *accurately* how many calories you burn during exercise.  A total program that can eliminate the guesswork for your caloric needs.
