Calgary Metabolic Testing: What is a Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) Assessment?

The ReeVue Medical Metabolic Rate Analysis System is an FDA-approved test for to measure resting metabolic rate, which is the amount of energy (calories) that your body uses at rest.

Because we all burn energy at a different rate, this direct measurement will allow us to personalize a program unique to you!

 

This is a simple 10-minute breath test which provides an accurate metabolic rate measurement, rather than an estimation to help customize a program that is unique to you. Since almost all of the energy your body produces is created through oxygen-utilizing biochemical metabolism, we measure this by analyzing the amount of oxygen your body consumes and the amount of carbon dioxide your body produces. The ReeVue provides a detailed printout with results and interpretations in just 10 to 20 minutes!

One 30-minute Registered Dietitian consult included.

Body Composition Calgary: Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA)

Body Composition Analysis measures the amount and percentages of muscle mass, fat mass and water throughout the body. By applying two low-energy X-rays to determine bone mass and soft tissue mass, a segmental analysis of 5 regions of the body is conducted.

In less than 60 seconds, an accurate and detailed analysis is performed to provide you with information you need to understand how your diet, exercise and lifestyle influence your body composition. We can gather insight as to what’s working well for you, so we can help you target and reach your goals.

Calgary Genetic Testing for Personalized Nutrition: What is Nutrigenomics?

Nutrigenomics is the scientific study of the interaction of nutrition and genes (DNA), especially with regard to the prevention or treatment of disease.

We now know that specific variations in our genes can explain how we will respond to the foods, beverages and supplements we consume.

The 45-Gene Test by Nutrigenomix provides actionable information for nutrient metabolism, heart health, weight management, food intolerances, eating habits and physical activity. It involves a quick, non-invasive saliva test with reports delivered in 2-4 weeks.

Two 30-minute Registered Dietitian nutrition consults included.
