Sleuthing for Your Metabolic Fingerprints
Because each person’s resting metabolism rate is unique, the people at Healthetech emphasize that knowing your “metabolic fingerprint” is the key to achieving and maintaining healthy lifestyle goals—particularly when it’s medically necessary to monitor diet and exercise.
“Diabetics in particular have specific dietary needs,” says HealtheTech. “Knowing their metabolic fingerprint and using it to form a healthy eating and fitness plan will help diabetics monitor essential nutrients.”
To accomplish this goal, HealtheTech offers BalanceLog software that bases the user’s goals on his or her resting metabolism rate and other important factors.
“With BalanceLog, users can monitor intake of carbohydrates, cholesterol, fiber and other dietary elements as well as overall diet and exercise,” says HealtheTech, “essentially creating a personal recommended daily allowance.”
