Find out how many calories you burn!
Do you “eat right” and still have trouble losing or gaining weight?
With the BodyGem device, we can quickly and easily learn exactly how many calories your body burns at rest. By multiplying this number by an activity factor, we will determine how many calories you burn each day, and thus reveal your specific metabolism. (Metabolism is influenced by age, sex, weight, muscle mass, hormones, medications, and illness.) This could be the key to achieving your target weight!
The measurement itself only takes 5-10 minutes, however a 30-minute appointment is necessary to allow for resting upon arrival, evaluation and explanation of the results.
The day of your BodyGem measurement:
- Do not eat anything for at least 4 hours prior to your appointment
- You may drink water before your appointment
- Do not exercise for at least 4 hours prior to your appointment
- Do not consume any caffeine (coffee, tea, chocolate, soda, weight loss pills, some pain relievers, energy water, guarana, certain mints and gums, SumSeeds, etc.) for 4 hours prior to your scheduled appointment
- Do not take supplements containing ephedra, Ma Huang or pseudoephedrine for at least 4 hours before your appointment
- Do not use nicotine for at least 1 hour prior to your appointment
- You may take your prescribed medications
- Please reschedule if you develop an acute illness
