Metabolic Breath Test
The Center for Advanced Weight Loss offers metabolic testing, a ten minute breath test which establishes a person’s unique metabolic rate. Your metabolic rate is the number of calories an individual burns in a day at rest.

It is important to know what your metabolic rate is because it can provide statistics to manage caloric intake for successful weight loss. “During the test, the air you breathe out is analyzed to determine exactly how much oxygen the body consumes. This is how your metabolic rate is measured,” explained B.J. Jacobson, BSN, RN, CHPN, Program Coordinator, Center for Advanced Weight Loss. Immediately after the test, the patient will know if their metabolism is low, normal or high. The test also determines exactly how many calories a person needs to maintain, lose, or even gain weight. From there, it is a simple math equation of calories in-calories out.

Many times patients have no idea how many calories they should be eating to lose weight or improve the quality of their diet. This test will provide objective information to help design a personalized plan including specific examples of what and how to eat.

The fee for the test is $75.00 which includes a guest pass to the Hunterdon Health & Wellness Centers or $250.00, which includes the test, three visits with a registered dietitian and three guest passes to the Hunterdon Health & Wellness Centers. The test is available at the Center for Advanced Weight Loss which is located at the Clinton Health Campus, 1738 Route 31 North, Suite 214 in Clinton, NJ.
