2. What is the purpose of a basal metabolic rate analysis?

In order to determine the energy consumption while at rest, the resting metabolic rate should be measured individually. This measurement gives the exact amount of fuel (energy by way of food) a person needs. Preceding the first treatment, a test is carried out to determine the basic values of your metabolism. The doctor will then be able to calculate your daily nutrition. If the doctor observes any deviations in the course of the treatment, repeated tests may be needed.

At the start of the phase in which you should stabilize your new weight, another test will be carried out. The outcome of this test will help you to make the right decisions when it comes to choosing your daily nutrition. This way you will stay in control over your body weight.
