Metabolic and Body Composition Testing; Why is it important? Understanding your body's unique metabolic rate enables your Dietitian to personalize your weight loss, weight gain, body composition, or maintenance program to align with your goals. Testing your metabolic rate can help identify a metabolism that might explain unsuccessful attempts at losing weight. It can also reveal any changes, in metabolism during the weight loss journey that can assist in troubleshooting plateaus. Once you achieve your desired goal measuring Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) will provide you with recommendations for maintenance ensuring you can sustain your target weight effectively. How does the testing process work? The KORR Metabolic Analyzers employ technology for ICU metabolic testing. Since every calorie consumed requires an amount of oxygen for energy conversion the KORR Analyzer measures the oxygen intake to calculate calories burned. To accurately measure oxygen consumption all exhaled air from the patient is collected. The KORR Meta Breather incorporates two one-way valves that allow air inhalation while directing all exhaled gas through the hose and, into the machine. A nose clip ensures analysis of all exhaled air. 100% Personalized Meal Plans We will collaborate closely with you to create a customized nutrition plan tailored to meet your health and lifestyle objectives.
