Metabolism Testing and Initial Nutrition Assessment
What is Metabolism Testing: Achieving your ideal weight begins with finding the right balance of exercise and caloric intake, but each person’s balance is unique. The cutting edge technology of the MedGem® enables our nutritionist to establish an accurate calorie budget specifically for YOU so you can successfully achieve your weight loss goals. The MedGem® RMR Tester is an FDA-cleared device that scientifically measures resting metabolism, or the number of calories a person burns at rest each day. Metabolism can vary greatly from person to person and whether an individual’s goals are weight loss, improved fitness, or even weight maintenance, an accurate metabolism reading is the key to success. The metabolism reading will help to determine how many calories you should be eating each day to maintain, gain or lose your weight.
What’s Included: A 90 minute metabolism assessment will include the MedGem® metabolic test. Our nutritionist will then assess your health history, diet intake and health goals to help you determine the amount of calories, carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins and minerals you need in your diet.
Note: The MedGem® metabolism measurement may be scheduled at any time but it is important to avoid caffeine and not eat, drink (water is OK) or exercise 4 hours before the test.
The Meal Plan Package Includes:
- 3 nutrition meetings including a 1 hour nutrition assessment and a thorough dietary analysis
- Metabolism Testing
- Meal Plan
- Two 45 minute follow-up nutrition appointments
Clients will meet with our nutritionist for a total of 3 sessions. The first session will be 90 minutes in length. During this time, our nutritionist will take your unique metabolic reading with the MedGem® metabolic test and will then assess your health history, diet intake and health goals. Our nutritionist will then help you determine the amount of calories, carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins and minerals you need in your diet. At the second 45 minute session you will receive your personalized meal plan. There will then be another 45 minute follow-up session to check your progress for a total of 3 nutritional meetings.
Follow-Up Nutrition Sessions
Following our metabolism testing or meal plan program, clients can meet with our nutritionist for 45 minute follow-up sessions as needed.
Weight Loss Program
Our weight loss program is a combination of nutrition counseling, real food and meal replacement products customized to meet your health and weight loss needs. Combining 2 or more of these three components have helped our patients lose more weight than other weight loss methods they have tried in the past, and have helped many become free of their blood pressure and adult onset diabetes medications. Our program is easy to follow, more cost effective than traditional nutrition counseling methods and our patients see immediate results without hunger.
What to expect: Our weight loss program includes an initial nutrition assessment and weekly nutrition sessions with our licensed nutritionist divided into 3 phases: weight loss, transition, and weight maintenance. Support meetings are optional.
Nutrition Assessment: At your nutrition assessment, our nutritionist will ask you a variety of health questions and design a weight loss program that is specific to your weight loss goals and health issues. Patients participating in our weight loss program receive complimentary metabolism testing at office visits.
