METABOLIC TESTING AT MERCY
Wouldn’t it be great to know exactly how many calories you need each day to achieve your weight loss goals? A resting metabolic test given at Mercy Weight Management Center can tell you instantly.*
Taking the test is simple: all you do is sit back, relax and close your eyes during the test. You will breathe through a tube for approximately 10 minutes while we measure your resting metabolic rate (RMR), the number of calories your body would burn if you sat in a chair all day.
Afterward, we’ll factor in your age, weight and activity level to determine if your metabolism is low, normal or high. Then we’ll give you a detailed printout listing your unique Target Caloric Zones. These zones are important because they give you the exact number of calories you need to lose, maintain or even gain weight. After you know the target number you’re shooting for, then it’s just a matter of calories in and calories out!*
IT TAKES THE GUESSWORK OUT OF LOSING WEIGHT
Many people think that simply cutting calories will help them lose weight, when in fact they may need to be eating more calories to speed up their metabolism. Metabolic testing at Mercy is useful because you leave your appointment knowing the maximum number of calories you can take in every day and still lose weight.* We call it "eating to your metabolism." It helps your body feel more full and satisfied, and it actually raises you RMR over time, so your body naturally burns more calories each day.*
If you’re ready to tailor your weight loss plan to your own unique metabolism, now’s the time to get tested. For more information or to schedule your test, call Mercy Weight Management Center
*Each person’s weight loss challenges are different.There is no guarantee of results and vary for each individual.
