The importance of metabolic testing for weight loss

Losing weight in Nassau County can be a difficult and stressful process for many people and your metabolism is a large part of it. Metabolism is the chemical processes that happen within a living organism in order to maintain life. When attempting to lose weight, it is important to learn as much as you possibly can about your body before beginning the process.

It would be very difficult to try and lose weight without being aware of the amount of calories you consume and burn every day. Metabolic testing is one crucial tool that should be used when trying to maintain your weight and for people that try and lose weight without this test, they may end up with inaccurate estimations. Metabolic testing determines how many calories your body burns while at rest, which will help to figure out how many calories you need to consume every day to lose weight. Without a metabolic test, almost 100% of people who succeed in losing their weight, end up gaining it all back because they never had a guideline to follow.

There are multiple factors involved with losing weight and actually being able to keep the weight off. Dr. Druz of Long Island has a program to help! This program is called “Fit in your GENES.” GENES stands for Genome, Environment, Nutrition, Exercise, and Supplements, and each of these are used to help the patient in their weight-loss process. It is a weight-loss program aimed at patients who do not have heart or cardiac disease risk factors as far as they are aware and it consists of testing for all different types of genetic markers that could be responsible for macronutrient metabolism, sensitivity to different kinds of exercise, and response to supplements.

This program’s goal is to accomplish a continual weight loss of at least 10% of pre-program body weight, reduction in visceral fat and an increase in muscle mass. The program is between 12-24 weeks and you are under physician supervision until the completion of the program. The program provides meal selections daily and those are provided electronically. Losing weight doesn’t have to be such a stressful process, and metabolic testing is one, big way to help.
