The Microlife BodyGem and MedGem indirect calorimeters determine RMR, to use with meal-planning software, such as DietMaster Pro.
It only takes 5-10 minutes for the BodyGem and Medgem to measure VO2 to determine RMR.
The Resting Metabolic Rate number is displayed on the LCD panel of the MedGem and BodyGem.
That RMR value can then be entered into DietMaster Pro Nutrition Software to calculate exact calorie requirements, and then recommend menu plans to meet specific health and disease prevention goals.
DietMaster Pro allows you to perform these primary dietary functions:
Perform dietary analysis of an individuals current eating habits to identify shortfalls, over-consumption and deficiencies in vitamins and minerals. This service typically justifies why the client should contract with a DietMaster Pro consultant to provide weight management services.
Build meal plans from scratch using foods from the database or new foods you have added into the system
Copy meal plans into the clients folder using the PhD approved meal plans. These save time, provide credibility and limit the liability of the weight management consultant.
Perform and evaluate fitness assessment tests. These include Cardiovascular, using simple step up or bike tests, Strength, using sit up or push ups, and Flexibility, using sit and reach method.
What Is The Consultation Process?
Typically the process begins with the dietary analysis. This provides the client with an “eye-opening” experience when they understand more about their eating habits. During this process two reports are generated. The first is the dietary analysis that compares the current intake of calories, protein, carbs and fats to the intake that DietMaster Pro has recommended (you can also override the systems recommendations of calories, ratios and RDAs).
The second report is the nutrient analysis that identifies deficiencies in vitamins and minerals from the clients current food intake. During the initial consultation body composition testing is performed, goals are set and body measurements are taken.
After the analysis work is completed the DietMaster Pro consultant can select the proper PhD meal plan template that best suits the clients dietary needs to meet their goals. The meal plan is copied into the clients folder and can be modified if desired. The consultant also has the ability to build meal plans from scratch. Meal plan reports and grocery lists are printed and given to the customer to follow for a period that averages 2-3 weeks.
Follow-ups are typically every 2-3 weeks and consist of updating the clients profile within DietMaster Pro, provide food alternatives using the exchange list, and visit the goals and tracking module to confirm that the rate of loss/gain is consistent with the goals set.
