What is Metabolic Analysis?

KX Health


At KX, we rely on Metabolic Analysis to measure our client’s success. Our clients lose on average of 0.5-1% body fat per week with customized exercise and nutritional programs.

Metabolic Analysis is used to assess body fat in specific areas of the body to determine how fat stores relate to hormonal imbalances

Many individuals’ stubborn problem areas are caused by imbalances in their body biochemistry, notably hormones. Metabolic Analysis, developed by world-renowned strength coach Charles Poliquin, is a method of assessing body fat percentage using 12 body fat sites that can quickly and accurately test using a quality calliper. The main difference between underwater weighing, electrical impedance and Metabolic Analysis, is that Metabolic can precisely determine the amount per millimetre of fat for each fat sites.

Most clients store excessive fat in just one area, while other people may have several different areas. Using this data, our Metabolic Practitioner will set out an individualized protocol of diet, exercise and supplementation to resolve this issue. For example if caliper test reveals an excessive amount of fat on the client’s lower thighs, relative to other sites, this suggests there might be a problem with high estrogen levels. If fat is stored in the lower back, the problem may be insulin levels.


Use Metabolic Analysis to customize exercise and nutritional protocols

Here at Kx, we use Metabolic Analysis to monitor clients’ progress. We use this tool to identify their baseline before they start any exercise or nutritional protocol. Reassessments are scheduled biweekly to ensure monitor progress and to implement new changes to speed up the rate of fat loss.
