Resting Metabolic Rate
The traditionally recommended intake of 2,000 calories per day for the average American is not backed by science and is nearly always incorrect.
Metabolism, which is affected by a variety of factors, including activity level, age, lean muscle mass, and genetics, varies considerably from individual to individual.
The only way to appropriately know how many calories one should consume per day is by measuring Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR).
"What gets measured gets managed
...and what gets managed gets improved."
Using clinical-grade lab equipment, rates of the body’s gas exchange (oxygen and carbon dioxide), our non-invasive Resting Metabolic Rate Test provides a precise measurement of basal metabolism, the number of calories needed by the body to sustain essential life function.
The Resting Metabolic Rate Test provides each client with their bioindividual metabolic profile. This profile is used to determine, with the highest levels of accuracy, not only how many calories are needed per day, but the breakdown of macronutrient levels, for any goal -- from weight loss and fat loss, to increasing muscle and lean body mass, or improve performance for a specific sport or goal.
Our Resting Metabolic Rate Test is conducted by a Nutritionist, who will explain test results and turn this data into a customized nutrition plan specific to a client’s needs and goals.
Our Body Composition Analysis is the perfect compliment to the Resting Metabolic Rate test, which, together, provides a complete matrix of nutrition-dependent weight loss, fat loss, performance and health data.
