We utilize a high tech device known as a metabolic testing unit to determine the Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) or the amount of food the client needs in order to achieve his/her specific goals. The test is non-invasive and requires the client to simply sit comfortably. The client wears a mask which is similar to an oxygen mask. The unit measures the amount of oxygen the individual consumes over a period of fifteen minutes.
Then a report is printed out that shows the number of calories that individual needs per day at rest. This information is then used along with another form to determine specific caloric requirements.
