CBS4 TV from Boston, recently featured a story about the Body Gem resting metabolic rate analyzer from HealtheTech, Inc., a company out of Golden, Colorado.
The device can be a great aid in a weight management process (everyone’s favorite past time, even if it is only in the head!):
The BodyGem® metabolic measurement device by HealtheTech is a handheld and portable unit that measures resting metabolic rate (RMR), the number of calories your body burns at rest each day.
BodyGem measures your unique Metabolic Fingerprint™ – the missing link to personalizing weight, nutrition and overall fitness programs for optimal results.
A successful weight and nutrition management program is just a matter of having the right information and balancing calories “in” with calories “out”. RMR comprises a majority of the total calories an individual burns each day, so knowing your Metabolic Fingerprint™ is vital to success. This information has historically been estimated, which may not be accurate for everyone, and is often the cause of frustrating weight plateaus.
