In the process of losing weight, gaining muscle, and achieving your fitness goals, understanding you individual metabolic rate is essential and very beneficial information. Measuring your resting metabolic rate with the BodyGem technology is an advanced more accurate mechanism in gathering your metabolic rate in comparison to a calculation which is not specific to your body composition. The BodyGem analyzer measures your individual metabolic rate based on your body composition, taking into account your lean body mass and fat tissue. The resting metabolic rate will then provide each individual a more accurate calculation of caloric needs as well as protein, carbohydrate and fat grams needed to achieve weight and or body composition goals.
Within 24-48hrs of your test, you will a receive a patient profile document that will provide you with an explanation of you RMR reading as well as the estimated daily caloric needs based on your goals. This document will also provide you with a breakdown of your estimated carbohydrate, protein and fat goals based on your specific weight and or body composition goals which will be discussed with the Registered Dietitian prior to your test.
