Metabolism Test

Riverfront Nutrition Associates provides a test that will calculate your Resting Metabolic Rate.

 

Have you always wondered what your metabolism is?

 

Until recently there was no convenient or affordable way to measure your metabolism. Now, at now at Riverfront Nutrition Associations, you can easily and quickly learn your metabolic rate with a simple test that takes 10 minutes or less using the Medgem® system.

 

What is metabolism and why should you have it measured?

 

Metabolism is the rate at which you burn calories. If you are eating more calories than you burn, you will gain weight. If you are eating less calories than you burn, you will lose weight. Think of your metabolic rate as a fingerprint, it is unique to you. It can be your key to managing your weight. You will leave the test knowing EXACTLY how many calories you should be eating in a day in order to achieve your goals.

 

Metabolism Test Instructions:

 

  1. No food or drink (water is OK) for 4 hours prior to the test.
  2. No caffeine for at least 4 hours prior to the test.
  3. No exercise for at least 4 hours prior to the test.
  4. No nutritional supplements or medications containing ephedra, Ma Huang or pseudoephedrine for at least 4 hours prior to the test.
  5. No smoking or using nicotine for at least 1 hour prior to the test.

The test involves relaxed breathing into a handheld device for approximately 5-10 minutes while sitting comfortably.
