Calories: The balancing act

Your resting metabolic rate indicates the amount of energy, or calories, you burn at rest. By measuring this, we can determine how many additional calories you need to account for your daily activities and exercise, and how to adjust these if you want to gain or lose weight.

The easy, non-invasive assessment includes a complete report and recommendations to help you achieve your goals. Appointments take just 30 minutes. Your appointment will be in Room 114 Gifford.

Fees

  • $75 general public
  • $37.50 CSU students and employees

Payment is required before your appointment.

The metabolism process

Metabolism describes the physical and chemical processes that happen naturally in our bodies in order to sustain life. This process also provides the energy we need for tissue repair, digestion, breathing, thinking, laughing, activity, etc.

During this process, some of the nutrients we consume are broken down and moved around the body to provide energy and some are combined (synthesized) to help build new cells.

Metabolism is generally measured in calories. There are some average calorie requirements based upon a person's body weight and activity level, but every person's metabolism is different.

In order to manage body weight and have enough energy for exercise, it's helpful to understand your unique daily caloric requirements.
