The Nutrition Center at Paoli Hospital can help you meet your
weight-loss goals with a variety of services.
MedGem: The Metabolism Reader
Our nutrition specialists can determine your personal metabolism with a
device called the MedGem®. You will know how many calories your body
burns each day, allowing the dietitians to provide you with the number
of calories your body needs so you can lose or gain weight.
Your unique metabolism can be hundreds of calories different from other
people of the same age, sex and body weight, which is why a
1,500-calorie diet doesn't work for everyone.
MedGem is a handheld portable device that measures resting metabolic
rate (RMR) to accurately determine an individualized nutritional program
appropriate for your needs. Having your metabolism measured allows the
dietitians to develop an accurate calorie budget that will help you
reach your goals. The importance of exercise will be discussed.
Medical Nutrition Therapy
A registered dietitian will develop your personalized meal plan based on
your RMR and your goals. Instruction will include a meal plan,
BalanceLog software, and advice on daily exercise.
Follow up appointments are suggested after 6 to 8 weeks. Fees are based
on 15-minute increments. Prices are subject to change. Please call for a
current fee schedule.
