What Is Metabolic Testing?

A Metabolic Test will determine the following:

    • The exact calories you should consume in order to achieve weight loss.
    • An exact measurement of calories that are burned during 30 minutes of physical exercise.
    • A targeted caloric intake number to maintain your weight.

What to expect at your Metabolic Testing Appointment:

  • You will be invited to sit or recline in a comfortable position while a nose clip is placed on your nose.
  • You will be given a MetaBreather mouth piece to breathe into. You’ll breathe in fresh air from the room, but the gas that you breathe out will go through a tube into a metabolic analyzer to measure your metabolic rate.
  • Relax! After about 10 minutes the device will beep, indicating it is finished.
  • When preparing for your Metabolic test, arrive at your appointment 15 minutes early and be prepared to rest.
  • No exercise or food 4 hours prior to your appointment, which includes no stimulants such as coffee and cold medications.
  • Prescription medications should be taken according to your schedule.
