BodyGem RMR Testing And The New USDA Food Plate

by David on July 6, 2011

The BodyGem allows you to create an individualized nutrition plan with the New Food Plate.

As you may already know, the U.S. Department of Agriculture swapped out the food pyramid for the plate icon.

The new standard is now a plate and is geared towards portion size.

This will help individuals consume fewer calories with an individualized nutrition plan.

When formulating a nutrition plan, it’s important that your patients or clients know how many calories they consume to stay within their daily budget!

How do you determine their range to begin with?

The MedGem™ and BodyGem™   indirect calorimeter measures resting metabolic rate (RMR) – the amount of calories your body burns at rest during a 24 hour period.  RMR is a critical component in creating an effective nutrition plan to help control their weight.
