You might be surprised to learn that it is now possible to have your metabolic rate analyzed in an office setting! I currently provide metabolic testing and analysis using Korr metacheck metabolic analysis equipment (www.korr.com).
Metabolic testing gives you the exact measurements you need to succeed at weight loss. In order to design a weight loss (or gain) food plan, you must know the rate at which you burn energy. Plans that only highlight what you are eating are doomed to fail unless there is some way of insuring that you are eating less energy then you are burning each day. A simple 10 minute breath test is used to determine your target calorie zone for weight change.
Individualized Metabolic Typing
Individualized metabolic typing is the new frontier in food planning. My tools include Healthexcel, which facilitates comprehensive metabolic analysis and allow for customized food plans- all based on your particular metabolic type.
Metabolic type is determined through the analysis of a comprehensive survey filled out on-line. This questionnaire is analyzed through Healthexcel. I review the results and work to get your diet working for your metabolic type. Metabolic typing is useful for people who are struggling to make changes to their weight.
It is also extremely helpful for people who are struggling with over-all energy, mood maintenance, food cravings, eating that has become unmanageable, and a large variety of chronic health issues including diabetes, metabolic syndrome, chronic fatigue syndrome, depression, and many others.
If you are not eating foods that help to balance your metabolic type, you will struggle with weight . Sure an apple is a healthy food, but when it is eaten and taken into your metabolic processing, that apple may cause your system to become more acidic and thereby move you away from health and block weight change efforts. The food you choose to eat is only half the equation. The other half is how food reacts with your metabolic processes.
