Rate of Metabolism

Boost Your MetabolismQuiz: Rate Your Metabolism

Your metabolism is essentially the key to your health however it is probably the most underestimated and misunderstood concept. Most of my clients seek my services because they want to lose weight. This is a wonderful goal to work toward, especially since being overweight is a precursor to many different types of chronic ailments. However, my goal for each client is to go one step further and determine explanations for why their metabolism has slowed and their health has deteriorated. If you are able to heal your metabolism, you will no longer need to diet or count calories in order to maintain a healthy weight. In order to optimize your metabolism, I focus on three main factors: detoxification, digestion, and hormonal balance.

Answer this brief questionnaire to evaluate your nutrition and lifestyle habits that relate to these essential factors and rate your metabolism to determine the outlook of your future.
