Whether you’re trying to lose weight or to maintain weight, Foothills Weight Loss Specialists now offers a customized way to gauge the number of calories you should consume in order to achieve success.
The simple fact of dieting is this: In order to lose weight, you take in fewer calories than you burn. The number of calories you burn, however, depends on your individual metabolic rate. Now, determining your individual metabolic rate through the ReeVue indirect calorimeter is easy, quick, painless, inexpensive and covered by most insurance.
The ReeVue metabolic test takes only 10 minutes. During the test, you simply sit back and breathe into the device, which analyzes the gas that you exhale to determine how much oxygen your body consumes while at rest. That information is used to establish your resting metabolic rate and the number of calories you would burn if you were sedentary all day.
Using your resting metabolic rate, we calculate how many calories you are likely to burn through ordinary daily living and how many calories you would burn during 30 minutes of moderate exercise. With this knowledge, we are able to tell you exactly how many calories you should eat and the amount of exercise you will need in order to maintain your current weight or to lose weight – no more guesswork or relying on one-size-fits-all calorie recommendations that aren’t specific to you.
Following testing, you will receive information regarding your body’s energy usage as well as three caloric zones – one for weight maintenance, one for weight loss and one for medically supervised weight loss.

You needn’t be one of our surgical patients to be tested.
