Personalized Nutrition and Fitness Program
This comprehensive program includes a resting metabolic rate test and provides you with personalized nutrition and fitness education. A registered dietitian and a certified personal trainer will guide you in the development of specific nutrition and fitness goals.
At Sharp Coronado Hospital's Sewall Healthy Living Center, a revolutionary handheld device is used for determining resting metabolic rate (RMR). We use a portable device that scientifically measures oxygen consumption. The test takes about 10 minutes and requires you to wear a nose clip and breathe through a mouthpiece similar to snorkeling.
When you meet with the registered dietitian, the critical RMR reading is explained to you and a weight and nutrition management program is developed. The session with the registered dietitian involves reviewing current eating habits and lifestyle factors to customize a nutrition plan. Nutrition and weight management goals are then planned to improve your health.
Successful weight management involves fitness; the next step is a consultation with a personal trainer. This consultation will focus on designing an individual exercise program. The personal trainer will guide you in the development of fitness goals.
