Metabolic testing is used to measure the factors that contribute to your metabolism’s speed. In its simplest form, metabolism is a measurement of how much energy your body requires each day to perform the functions necessary for life.

When choosing metabolic testing services, clients will need to fast for four hours prior and breathe normally into a mouthpiece for a few minutes. After this simple process, we’ll provide you with a full report on your metabolism’s performance and set to work on developing a personalized nutrition plan to help you better manage your health goals.

I went in and had a metabolic test done which took about 10 minutes, all you really have to do is sit there and breath. From there my coach was able to determine by my height weight and bone density (just measures your wrist) how many calories I burn in a day. Then he asked about my diet and other lifestyle factors and from that he was able to produce a customized meal plan which uses an exchange – really great because I can pick my own meals each day. Bottom line it has been 3 weeks and I have lost 15 lbs – definitely recommend giving this a try!

I recently met with Chelsea and had a metabolic test done. She was very kind a knowledgeable. Knowing and understanding accurate data has enabled me to fuel my body better which has increased my energy as well as helped with my sleep. I highly recommend Chelsea and her services through NHW.

After testing my metabolism they set up and easy to follow meal plan which fit in with my schedule and removed the guesswork. I’m social on the weekends and they helped game plan what to do in certain situations and the accountability is what I needed!
