Bodygem Metabolism Test

$99.00 $75.00

An individual metabolism measurement is the most accurate method for determining your unique RMR, enabling us to determine the personalized calorie budget and exercise program just right for you.

Product Description

Details: We will conduct the Bodygem test at your home, workplace, or another convenient location. The test itself takes 10 minutes, but you should allow 30 minutes because it requires a 10-15 quiet rest period before starting.

Metabolism is the total number of calories your body burns each day. The Bodygem is a handheld device that accurately measures your Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) using the amount of oxygen you consume and expel into the Bodygem device during a 10-minute testing period. RMR is a number that represents the amount of calories you would need to consume daily in order to maintain your current weight, without any activity, and it accounts for up to 75% of your total daily metabolism. We will use your RMR as a starting point for providing the most accurate, individualized caloric level for your nutrition goals (i.e. maintenance, weight gain/loss) based on this equation:

Total metabolism = RMR + lifestyle/occupational activities + exercise

The two factors that have the largest influence on your RMR are: (1) Total body weight: if you weigh more, your body requires more calories to maintain your normal body functions and (2) Total muscle mass: if you have more muscle, your body burns more calories at rest.

Important note: Please do not eat, drink anything other than water, exercise, or use nicotine for at least 4 hours prior to your scheduled appointment. If this recommendation is not followed, the results of the measurement will be inaccurate.
