Metabolic testing is the fastest way to lose fat without the guess work!
WHAT OUR METABOLIC MACHINE MEASURES:
- If your metabolism is slow, normal or fast
- Exact calories to eat on workout days
- Exact calories to eat on rest days
- What to do if you have a food blowout day
- Exact calories to eat once goals are achieved
WHAT IS METABOLIC TESTING?
At Body Measure we have a research grade metabolic device.
Metabolic Testing 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.
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.
FIND OUT HOW TO EAT TO SUIT YOUR METABOLISM
Losing weight is difficult for most people. We see many clients who try to lose weight by dramatically under eating. This over time can make the body enter famine mode, which can cause your metabolism to slow down.
Things like Yo Yo dieting, long term calorie restriction, overtraining, stress, certain medical conditions and just ageing can all slow down your metabolism.
Also we see the situation where clients are training really hard but not replenishing their body with the right amount of calories. This can lead to muscle loss, fatigue and injury.
Knowing the right amount of calories to eat on training days and non-training days gives the body enough energy to recovery from training whilst allowing for fast and safe fat loss.
You may be training really hard but not replenishing your body with the right amount of calories and this can lead muscle loss, fatigue, injury and possibly weight gain.
IT IS A SIMPLE AND EASY TEST AND ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS:
- No food or coffee for 4 hours prior to your test
- Don’t exercise before your test
- Relax and breath into an individual sterilized tube for 10 minutes
- Receive your calorie plan that day!
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 METABOLISM
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.
