Effective training and nutrition strategies based on precise measurements
The metabolicscan uses the oxygen concentration and carbon dioxide output of your breath to derive highly effective training and nutrition programs. The oxygen values provide information about the limiting factors of oxygen storage capacity that can be affected by exercise. These include your muscles, the largest store of oxygen, and the formation of capillaries during basic endurance training. A high carbon dioxide output indicates too high a carbohydrate intake and serves as an indicator of a balanced diet in terms of carbohydrates.
The results of your current metabolic state are presented in a simple and understandable way. You find out whether you are in a fat or carbohydrate burning mode and how your resting energy metabolic rate compares to the normal value.
Activate fat burning
Effective fat burning requires your body to have optimal oxygen uptake capacity. The lower your CO2 output, the more efficiently your metabolism will function. A diet too rich in carbohydrates can lead to permanently elevated CO2 levels and block the supply of energy from fat metabolism.
