“The Science behind Successful Weight Loss and Weight Management”

 fitmate

An excess energy intake of just 250 kcal/day will cause body weight to increase 1 pound in 14 days. In 1 year you will have gained 14 pounds!! Knowing what your metabolic rate is essential for any weight loss or weight management program.

 

FACT: Most diets fail because the extreme dietary restrictions cause your body to lose both muscle and fat mass. When your body loses muscle, your daily caloric requirement drops. Due to this drop in caloric requirement it makes it increasingly hard to keep the weight off when you stop the “diet”.

 

What is Metabolic Testing?

Medpoint uses the innovative technology of COSMEDs Fitmate Pro to determine your personal Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) through indirect calorimetry. RMR is simply the number of calories that your body needs to maintain vital body functions.

Why is knowing my Resting Metabolic Rate so important for weight loss?

Knowing your actual RMR allows you to decrease caloric intake to a level that optimizes fat loss. Consuming less calories than your RMR creates a biological response in your body that decreases your metabolism— which means that your body will require less calories to function, thus promoting storage of fat and muscle break down. 

What does the test consist of?

The test is very easy! All you have to do is relax and breathe into the Fitmate machine for approximately 15 minutes. Expired air is analyzed determine your RMR. Once the test is complete our Exercise Physiologist will review your results with you.
