Working out, cooking meals, and living an active lifestyle requires energy. Sometimes it can seem like this energy is impossible to grasp, so you slug through these tasks and eventually lose hope. Despite your best efforts at weight loss, a low metabolism might impede you every step of the way. As your medical weight loss doctors in Layton, Dr. Rigby and our other Providers can help determine whether your body’s metabolism is making an active lifestyle more of a challenge.
Metabolism, simply put, is the energy your body creates when it consumes food and beverages. This biochemical process determines everything from breathing to circulating blood to repairing cells. People with a high metabolism might find it easier to wake at 5am, run 5K, cook breakfast, work for 8 hours, and then cook dinner.
Several factors are at play in determining a person’s metabolic rate, including sex, age, and muscle mass. To properly asses your metabolism and its corresponding health factors, our Providers use the ReeVue Resting Metabolic Rates system at the Layton clinic.
Metabolic testing (ReeVue) – a system that measures your metabolic activity via your respirations.
How ReeVue Works
Metabolism is an oxygen-based process combined with food and beverage nutrients to create energy. The ReeVue metabolic testing system measures the body’s oxygen consumption levels to calculate a person’s Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR). Some patients may have an abnormally low RMR, which will require a custom treatment approach to medical weight loss.
The best way to overcome a slow metabolism is a multi-tiered approach to complex body processes like building muscles and absorbing anti-oxidants. Using a custom weight loss solution including an exercise regimen and certain supplements, Our Providers can help Layton area patients accomplish medical weight loss and a healthy lifestyle.
