Metabolic Testing

metabolic testingSimple 10-minute Metabolic Testing

The metabolic test shows how much you burn all day every day.

During the test, the air you breathe out is analyzed to determine exactly how much oxygen your body has consumed. This is how your metabolic rate is meatured. Once completed, your metabolic rate will be used to calcualte your Target Caloric Zones. These Zones provide powerful information to help you lose weight.*

Your zones will show you how to eath the maximum amount of food and still lose weight. Your body will be healthy, happy and satisfied.

Resting Metabolic Rate

Metabolic rate is a measure of how much food, or fat, is converted to energy in a day. Resting metabolic rate (RMR) is the measurement of how much food, or energy, is required to maintain basic body functions such as heartbeat, breathing, and maintenance of body heat while you are in a state of rest. That energy is expressed in calories per day. So an RMR test shows how many calories you burn at rest, doing nothing more than sitting in a chair.
