At Live Lean Rx Houston, we understand that your body is as unique as your journey to your health and fitness goals. Managing your weight is a math problem. If you create a calorie deficit by burning more calories than you consume then you’ll lose weight. If you create a calorie surplus by consuming more calories than you burn then you’ll lose weight. With the right nutrition and exercise plans you, you’ll do more than just gain or lose weight. You’ll burn body fat or gain lean muscle mass to create a healthier you.
We also understand that, although the math problem is simple, the variables at play are complex. The number of calories you use in one day depends on things like your activity level, height, weight, body composition, gender, and even hormones. The health and fitness industry offers widely accepted ways to estimate the calories you need but our goal at Live Lean Rx Houston is to equip you with accurate information about your body so you don’t have to estimate anymore. We take the guesswork out of your nutrition by using DEXA body composition scanning and Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) testing to understand precisely what your body needs.
If you’ve already completed your DEXA scan and your RMR test, then you’ll be able to use the LLRx Macro Calculator to create customized macronutrient ratios and tailor a nutrition plan to fit your goals. If you haven’t yet completed your RMR test, then the calculator will use a standard equation based on the lean mass measurement from your DEXA scan report to estimate your energy requirements so you can also create a customized plan.
We also offer Nutrition Services to help you further refine your macros, to create personalized nutrition plans, or to coach you towards your specific goals.
