Metabolic Testing

Metabolism, quite simply, is the conversion of food to energy.

Metabolic rate is a measure of how much food, or fat, is converted to energy in a day. Resting metabolic rate (RMR) is the measurement of how much food, or energy, is required to maintain basic body functions such as heartbeat, breathing, and maintenance of body heat while you are in a state of rest. That energy is expressed in calories per day. So an RMR test shows how many calories you burn at rest, doing nothing more than sitting in a chair.

Philosophy Nutrition & Fitness works to design nutrition plans that provide the most calories possible while still enabling you to lose weight at a healthy and satisfying rate. Advanced metabolic testing equipment from Korr Medical Technologies helps your Registered Dietitian determine Resting Metabolic Rates and establish individual daily caloric requirements.

For accurate testing results, Metabolic Testing is conducted during the waking hours. Participants must adhere to the following protocol:

  • Fast for 12 hours overnight (only water is allowed)
  • Refrain from strenuous exercise for 24 hours
  • Refrain from smoking for 24 hours
  • Travel to the testing site by motor vehicle
  • Continue medications as per usual

Metabolic Testing – $180
