METABOLIC EFFICIENCY TESTING
Nutrition is not about “weight management”; it’s about learning how to manage your metabolism.
The Metabolic Efficiency Assessment is a personalized, comprehensive evaluation for metabolism, nutrition, and exercise. We provide a toolkit to support nutrition and exercise challenges for all patients.
HOW DOES THE METABOLIC EFFICIENCY PROGRAM WORK?
The Metabolic Efficiency Program is a 3-month comprehensive nutrition and exercise program. The first two sessions are in person, each lasting about an hour. In the first session, we review your intake forms: foods, behaviors, exercise, as well as measure your resting metabolic rate (RMR). Your RMR changes as we age and is affected by disease processes and lean tissue loss. You may also have concerns about other chronic diseases or ailments that have been bothering you or recommendations from your physician. The second session is a report or “toolkit” with meal plans, nutrition information to improve your health outcomes and an exercise plan designed with your needs and limitations. The 3rd and 4th session are at 6 and 12 weeks and include either a phone contact or a virtual session to assess any further nutrition and exercise instruction which may need to be adjusted based on your original “Plan of Action”. The Metabolic Efficiency program is $200.00. This is not covered by insurance, but many clients are using their HSA or FSA because of the behavioral indices which are covered within our program: nutrition and exercise to prevent further disease process.
METABOLIC EFFICIENCY ASSESSMENT
The Metabolic Efficiency Assessment is a personalized, comprehensive evaluation for metabolism, nutrition, and exercise. We provide a toolkit to support nutrition and exercise challenges for all patients. The Metabolic Efficiency Assessment consists of four sessions over a three-month period:
includes basal metabolic rate measurement using our MEDGEM, three-day food record, review of health conditions and notes from primary care physician, and exercise assessment for limitations and functional abilities.
includes comprehensive evaluation of the patient’s metabolism, nutritional analysis, and exercise evaluation and programming. The patient will receive a toolkit to include
• Assessment of food record including all macro and micro nutrients, meal planning, and shopping strategies
• Food recommendations to address vitamin and mineral deficiencies.
• Explanation of basal metabolic rate and how it relates to weight management.
• Exercise recommendations including structured functional aerobic and anaerobic fitness plans, strength training schedule, and exercise guide via MedBridge.
• Continue your progress with our team through weekly emails and phone calls.
Sessions 3 and 4 at week 6 and 12 are milestones in your program and include a scheduled phone call to assess your progress or any needed adjustments to nutritional intake or further exercise information.
