Downingtown Nutrition & Weight Management Center’s founder and dietitian, Jennifer Barr, empowers clients to improve personal-health knowledge and exercise know-how with precise metabolic-testing and body-fat analyses. The body-fat analysis assesses fatty-tissue percentage based on height, current weight, and average hours spent eating sticks of butter. Next, metabolic levels are charted with a MedGem scanner, an FDA-cleared medical device that rates resting oxygen-consumption levels to decipher one’s resting metabolic rate and thus determine one’s caloric needs. This is used in conjunction with the body-fat analysis to draft a nutritional or weight-loss plan more individualized than the fingerprints on a snowflake. Jennifer and the client finish the session by reviewing the test results during a consultation.
