Using accurate metabolic data from the PNOE gas analysis unit to guide your nutrition consultation

One to one nutritional consultations are offered on request.  I emphasis the importance of understanding how the body manages different diets and the importance of timing when it comes to dining.  Once understood, you will be in a position to make better more informed dietary decisions.  We use the portable metabolic gas analysis device called PNOE to give us insight into the your resting metabolic rate, and also find out the required calories to lose weight, and more importantly, it will tell us the preferred fuel source that your body is using to provide energy for day to day activities. If weight loss is your goal, then it is vital to have fat as the predominant energy fuel in this case. Once we know this ratio of fat to carbohydrate as the preferred energy source, we can adapt the diet and training plan to positively change this ratio if required ratio of fat to carbohydrate as the preferred energy source, we can adapt the diet and training plan to positively change this ratio if required.  More info on the PNOE metabolic gas analyser here

What's involved?

The initial session is one hour in length.  You can have your height, weight and body fat percentage measured here at this session.  The session will go over the pre-nutrition assessment questionnaire and we will introduce the important nutritional points regarding blood sugar control and appetite control in an easy-to-understand fashion.  We can use the portable metabolic gas analyser to get an accurate insight into what fuel your body prefers to use and also find out what your basic calorie requirements are.  This information allows for a much more individualised approach whatever your goal may be.  Read more about the gas analyser here.
