The fastest way to lose fat without the guess work!
WHAT OUR METABOLIC MACHINE MEASURES:
WHAT IS METABOLIC TESTING?
At Body Measure we have a research grade metabolic device.
Metabolic Testing, through Indirect Calorimetry is the accurate, reliable measurement of your metabolism. The machine, by measuring both OXYGEN and CARBON DIOXIDE as you inhale and exhale, at rest, calculates total calories your body needs for either weight loss or for your maintenance zone.
In this way, all the guess work is removed, giving you the fastest and most reliable way of getting to your ideal body composition.
*Metabolic testing is best paired with a MACRO ratios consult or an appointment with a dietitian/ nutritionist.
WHAT IS YOUR RESTING METABOLIC RATE?
This is the amount of calories your body needs to burn whilst at rest to live, i.e. the calories needed to beat your heart, move your diaphragm, maintain your body temperature etc. From this, science has determined the amount of calories one would need to eat to achieve their ideal body composition.
Your Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) is a measure of how many calories you burn at rest in 24 hours.
Body Measure will directly measure your metabolism using research grade technology which will give you an accurate personalised measurement rather than using a generic formula which is an estimate.
This means that you can now determine exactly how many calories you need to eat in a day to successfully lose weight and reach your body composition goals.
IT IS A SIMPLE AND EASY TEST AND ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS:

WHY METABOLIC FORMULAS DON’T WORK
Until now we have had to use predictive metabolism formulas. This is where you enter your weight, height, sex and age into a calculator and your metabolism is estimated. The problem is that these formulas are inaccurate and can vary considerably from test to test.
There are 4 main metabolic testing formulas that exist and if you put in your details into each of these formulas there is whopping 200 calories a day in variation! Eating 200 calories above you maintenance would cause you to gain a staggering 9kg in a year!
It’s fairly obvious that these predictive formulas are a best guess. For example if two people had the same height, weight and sex, and one was an elite athlete, the other an overweight couch potato, they would not have the same metabolisms. The predictive formulas would show that their metabolisms were the same!
Our Metabolic test is state of the art and completely individualized to each client.
It’s a research grade machine that measures your metabolism through O2 and Co2 direct measurement.
So there is no guess work. Get your unique metabolism measured and know the exact amount of calories you need to lose fat fast.
WHY DEXA SCANS CANNOT WORK OUT YOUR METABOLIC RATE
Using DEXA scans to measure metabolic rate is also unfortunately inaccurate.
DEXA scans still use a predictive formula. But rather than being based on height, weight and sex, it is based on the recorded lean tissue mass. But being a formula it is still open to great inaccuracies.
