I would have never thought that I could lose the fat. They tell you how and what to do to feel and look better. I would recommend this if you want to know what to do to feel like you did in your 20s.

Resting Metabolic Rate Testing

Your resting metabolic rate is how efficiently your body converts food into energy (often called your metabolism). Your metabolism can be affected by weight, age, body composition, hormone levels, gender, and more—making it a highly unique number that can change over time.

This makes knowing your resting metabolic rate extremely helpful whether you’re working to lose weight, achieve better athletic performance, or maintain a healthy lifestyle. 

  • Gain the insights needed to customize your weight loss or maintenance program around your body’s specific needs.
  • Screen for a slow metabolism that may explain frustrated attempts to lose weight.
  • Reveal changes in your metabolism during the weight loss process to troubleshoot a frustrating plateau.

Resting Metabolic Rate Testing Preparation:

  • No consumption of stimulants, such as caffeine or nicotine, 8-10 hours prior to your test.
