What is Metabolism?
The energy cost to keep all cellular processes of the body going over a 24hr period. Your metabolism is the total number of calories your body burns each day.
Why would I want my metabolism measured?
A metabolic measurement will determine how many calories your body needs to meet your goals. Your metabolism along with your daily physical activity determines how many calories your body burns each day. If you are trying to lose weight, have hormonal irregularities, or trying to break through a plateau this is an essential piece of the puzzle.
How is my metabolism measured?
A simple breath test is administered using the MedGem which is a class II, FDA approved device. The test is administered in about 10 minutes. It measures the oxygen utilization of your body to calculate an extremely accurate metabolic rate.
