The Microlife BodyGem RMR indirect calorimeter system can determine metabolic rate for your client in 5-10 minutes.
Metabolic testing provides a precise measurement of your clients RMR, which can account for up to 75% of their total calorie needs.
Metabolism testing is superior to estimation equations, such as
the Harris-Benedict formula and Katch-McArdle formula.
Compass Nutrition Uses The BodyGem indirect calorimeter for metabolic rate testing.
We provide the best care for you through our wide-range of nutrition services for individuals, groups and businesses.
Weight loss looks different for each person and can cause frustration when you do not know what works for you.
Many factors can affect weight loss like eating habits, physical activity, sleep patterns, alcohol intake, food quality (i.e. take-out, restaurants, home cooking), hydration or metabolism.
Your metabolism converts food and stored fat into energy that your body can use to stay warm, move around, keep vital organs functioning, and even think. Metabolism can be measured in calories.
The Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) is the number of calories your body burns at rest (which means if you did nothing but lay in bed all day).
Testing your RMR using a device called the BodyGem® can give our RDNs an accurate measurement of your calorie needs.
With your RMR, our RDNs have the details to create a plan for your metabolism and body composition.
For some individuals, you may need to increase your exercise to lose weight. For others, you may need to adjust your nutrition. The BodyGem® helps us discover the difference.
