Metabolic testing

Knowing your metabolic needs is the key to your weight loss success!

What is metabolic testing?

Testing a person's metabolic rate will determine exactly how many calories you need to eat to lose weight.

Retesting over time will reveal if your metabolism has been affected by dieting and exercise.

The only way to really know if someone is burning fat is to test their metabolism. A weight loss plan must be individualized.

When it comes to weight loss, there is no such thing as "one size fits all." Each person's metabolism is different based on genetics, eating habits, and fitness level.

Each person gains weight for a variety of physical, emotional, and environmental factors. Charts and averages are not always an effective ways to construct a diet plan.

The Assessment

1. Relax: Cardiocoach measures resting metabolic rate. It is important that you be able to reach a resting state during your test. You should avoid activities such as exercise or stressful situations that will prevent you from relaxing for at least two hours prior to your test.

Digesting a large meal, as well as taking stimulants, such as caffeine, can raise your metabolic rate and should also be avoided prior to your test.

2. Sit: Once you arrive, you will be able to sit comfortably while being tested. The technician will then place a nose clip on your nose, and you will be given a disposable mouthpiece to breathe through.

This will measure how much oxygen you are breathing out. It is very important that you breathe only through the mouthpiece so this measurement will be correct. The mouthpiece is a sterile item that will be used only for you.

3. Breathe:
Finally, you just sit back and breathe. Our machine will indicate when it has calculated your metabolic rate. This takes anywhere from 10-12 minutes.

The more relaxed and even your breathing, the quicker it will be able to determine your resting metabolic rate. Using specific software we will enter all your data from the test and you will get a print out your results.

Once you have established what your body requires it's time to get a personalized eating plan.
