Metabolic Testing

What Is Metabolic Testing?

     In order to lose weight you must burn more calories than you consume. Metabolic testing is a process that allows you to discover what is the maximum amount of calories you can consume in a day and still lose weight! This easy test measures your RESTING METABOLIC RATE or RMR. Your RMR is the number of calories you would burn doing nothing but resting all day! The majority of all calories burned {about 70 to 80%} are burned at the resting level. Finally the answer to pain FREE weight loss! No more starvation diets that leave you tired, frustrated, and ultimately unsuccessful! The real key to weight loss is knowing precisely what your body needs!

What is metabolism?
     Metabolism is the biochemical process of combining nutrients with oxygen to release the energy needed to function. Metabolism is typically measured in calories. Total metabolic rate represents the calories needed for maintaining body functions, daily activity, and purposeful exercise.

How Does It Work?

     The advantages of Metabolic Testing over conventional stress tests are that Metabolic Testing measures several parameters during exercise including: the electrocardiogram, the amount of oxygen consumed, and the amount of carbon dioxide produced. It can evaluate a defect in the pulmonary system, the cardiovascular system or a defect simply secondary to obesity or de-conditioning, and it can “pinpoint” the weak link in the chain of exercise intolerance. Conventional stress tests only look at a patient’s electrocardiogram during exercise. The results of Metabolic analysis are highly accurate. Metabolic testing has been in use for 10 years at centers throughout the country, and accurately determines the source of exercise limitation in most patients.

Recommendations To Obtain Optimum Results?

     Come to your metabolic test session without having exercised or eaten in the four hours prior to the test. Sessions are 30 minutes in length, easy to do, and require about 10 minutes of actual testing. Your testing session will give you an opportunity to meet with a qualified nutrition professional one-on-one.


     Your metabolic rate is how many calories your body burns in a day-how fast your body uses energy. In order to manage your weight, you need to have an energy balance. When food is absorbed into your body, it must either be burned as energy or stored as fat. Calories measure the energy in the food we eat and the energy our body uses. The trick is to balance the calories you eat with the energy needs of your metabolism. Measuring your metabolic rate is how we determine the correct number of calories for your body, or rather for your metabolism. Knowing your metabolic rate helps you to balance what you eat with what you burn.
