Nothing is more frustrating than the dreaded weight-loss plateau! When you're exercising regularly and eating clean yet the scale just won't budge, it can make you want to chuck it all and go back to the comforting arms of Little Debbie and reality TV, especially when we're repeatedly reminded that weight loss is as simple as "calories in, calories out."
our metabolic test is ideal for anyone who is actively managing their weight using a calorie controlled diet. To lose weight, you need to be in “negative energy”, or in plain English, burn more calories than you consume. It’s essential to know exactly how many calories you actually burn. The metabolic test measures your metabolic rate and identifies whether you have a fast or slow metabolism. After the test, you will know exactly how many calories to eat in order to lose weight. You’ll get tips and tricks to speed up your metabolism to get your body working with you, rather than against you.
The test is conducted wearing normal clothes, seated or reclined in a chair and lasts between 13-20 minutes. You should be as comfortable and relaxed as possible . you blow into a tube to catch and analyse your breath, allowing the accurate measurement of calories burned.
The most important thing you need to do is to ensure you do not eat or drink anything other than water 4 hours before the test. This is critically important. If you do eat or drink anything before the test, there is a strong likelihood that the test may have to be postponed to another time. If you smoke, do not smoke at least 4 hours before the test. Try to avoid any strenuous activity at least 3 hours before your test. We would not advise working out or going to the gym until after your assessment, contact us for more information.
