What can I expect with The Customized Plan?
Your 60-minute initial assessment will include analysis of your body composition (fat mass versus lean mass), Body Mass Index (BMI) and Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) to determine your current condition and daily caloric requirement. We will analyze your RMR utilizing a simple 10-minute breathing test. We will also discuss your health status, review your most recent blood work and ask questions to assess your current relationship to food. From this assessment appointment we will learn about your eating habits and the goals you want to achieve through our nutrition program.
A second meeting will provide valuable information and tools, including menus, restaurant guides, shopping lists, and more, that will help you successfully navigate most food situations. We will continue to be with you every step of the way with regular meetings that assess your progress, address any obstacles you are facing, and more.
What is RMR?
Your Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) is the amount of energy expended while at rest. This represents the energy requirements for maintaining life, such as maintenance of temperature, heart rate, breathing and nerve transmission. This continual work makes up about 60-70% of the calories each of us burns each and every day.
Why do you measure RMR?
Eliminating the guesswork translates into maximum calorie consumption while achieving faster results. We all know that there is no magic bullet or pill for weight loss. We must take in fewer calories than we burn. But do you know how many calories you burn in a day? Do you know how much energy you need for efficient fat loss? Whether youâ€™re trying to lose fat, gain muscle or maintain your ideal weight, you can now eat the right amount of calories to achieve and maintain your ideal body composition.
