If you want your workouts to be 100% productive, and your nutrition tailored to your personal physiology, then all your health and fitness efforts should begin with metabolic analysis. Metabolic testing unlocks the secrets held in the individual physiology of each of our clients and is crucial to our success in helping people of all ages and abilities reach peak fitness and optimum body weight. This testing will allow us to help you too, because it allows us to accurately determine a key aspect of your physiology when it comes to achieving and maintaining good health and high levels of fitness, that is the exact number of calories you need daily in order to maintain, increase, or decrease your body weight.
Without this testing, all other exercise and nutrition programs are based on a guess when it comes to the calories you require each day to reach your goals.
The key to sustainable weight loss (as opposed to the “yoyo” weight loss and weight gain of trendy weight loss fads) is a high resting metabolic rate. Your resting metabolic rate, or the calories you burn throughout every minute of the day, is much more important for weight management than the calories you burn while exercising. The term “metabolic refers” to how your body makes energy. Your resting metabolic rate is the rate at which your body burns calories to run your bodily functions at rest.
Many clients come to us in frustration because they have reduced their calorie intake and increased their training, but are still unable to achieve the body they desire. At this point, they are consuming fewer calories than their body needs for basic systems function, forcing their metabolism to slow to an idle to conserve every calorie consumed. The result is a sluggish metabolism that stores fat instead of burning it for energy.
With the information gleaned from this test, we can accurately prescribe for you the quantity of calories you need in order to keep your metabolism revving all day long. And the right amount of protein to help build lean muscle. The result is less body fat and more energy.
Whats about Active Metabolic Rate
Take your RMR and use a multiplier based on your activity level. To lose weight, consume 250-500 fewer calories than your active metabolic rate, using the Herbalife Meal Replacement Programme. The aim is lose weight and body fat but without losing lean muscle. Ideally increasing your lean muscle so you can burn more calories every day
Do include a strength training element into your programme, that is 3 times a week for 30 minutes using the 24Fit DVD’s. Do include a recovery shake such as Rebuild Strength. Don’t skip your protein shake after you exercise and think that you’ll save calories! A protein shake after training accelerates lean muscle growth, which in turn revs your metabolism and burns more fat, and speeds up recovery. It also can prevent you from feeling deeply ravenous and overeating later on. Exercise and nutrition working together to get the best results. Thats #24fit.
