Metabolism varies based on age, weight, hormones, gender, muscle mass, medications and illness/disease. This is why the test is beneficial. It will tell you EXACTLY how many calories you need to eat in a day to maintain/lose or gain weight. It’s proven to be more accurate than online or app calorie calculators.
Who needs metabolic testing?
Anyone interested in losing weight, maintaining weight or improving overall health and fitness. We highly recommend it for anyone who has followed a calorie count for weight loss in the past and not seen results. Your frustration likely lies in the calorie level.
Is the test painful? How long does it take?
It’s not painful in any way. You come into our office, sit relaxed for about ten minutes as you breath into the BodyGem device. Your nose is clamped during the test but otherwise there is no discomfort.
How much does it cost?
If you have BCBS or Aetna they may part for a portion of your visit. Otherwise, contact us to find out your specific cost.
After I get my results, then what?
Your metabolic test results can then be used by Registered Dietitian Kelly Diamond to plan your daily intake in a way that facilitates maximum results. To achieve this, we recommend you work with Kelly at least 6 weeks.
