How Your Resting Metabolic Rate Can Unlock the Secrets of Successful Weight Loss

So many of us have struggled to reach our goal weights again and again, only to fail. Program after program, we gather ourselves anew and tell ourselves ‘this time I’ll make it, this is the program for me,’ only to fall short by a little - or a lot. The problem with so many of these programs is that they’re formulaic, one-size-fits-all and we simply are not. Look in the mirror. Do you look exactly like your sister? Your best friend? Your neighbor down the street? No, you are a beautiful, unique individual right down to the very core and that includes your dietary needs.
 
Weight gain and weight loss is a very complicated process. It's a combination of genetic makeup, hormonal controls, diet composition and your lifestyle, including sleep, physical activity, stress and more. The reason so many ‘off the shelf’ programs fail is that they seek to overly simplify the process, with most reducing it to a “calories in < calories out” equation. While that is a large part of the equation, all of the previously mentioned variables factor in to skew it various ways for which many programs don’t account.
 
Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) evaluations and nutritional consultations address the very uniqueness of you to build a program unlike any other that you’ve experienced. At Windham Pilates, we offer a Resting Metabolic Rate evaluation and nutritional consultation that provides data specific for your needs so that you can build a diet and exercise plan tailored to your unique body chemistry. In addition to measuring your RMR, you also receive custom nutritional counseling with our fantastic Registered Dietician, Noreen Gallo, who will help you understand what your RMR means and the changes you can make to meet your weight loss goal.
