Is Metabolic Testing for you?
Your resting metabolic rate or RMR reflects the number of calories you burn when in a resting state (e.g. sitting in a chair). An awareness of your RMR can help in estimating your calorie requirements for everyday life. This caloric estimation can help by ensuring that you are nourishing your body adequately for exercise or for weight management. The MedGem™ device is the hand-held machine that measures your RMR and can be used anywhere to provide fast and accurate results. The test itself involves breathing normally into the device for 5 to 10 minutes. Your results are then available to you immediately.
Optimize is now offering a special program that can assess your RMR before and after a personalized nutrition and fitness program. It is known that an increase in your muscle mass can increase your RMR, in other words, gaining more muscle can give you a faster metabolism. This metabolic shift can make it easier for you to maintain an athletic physique.
