Understand your calorie-burning capacity
PNOÉ testing is a comprehensive metabolic assessment at AdvancedYOU Superhuman BioHacking in Dallas that provides detailed information about a person’s aerobic (during exercise) and anaerobic (at rest) fitness levels, fat and carbohydrate metabolism, and calorie-burning capacity. The PNOÉ test can be performed at rest or during exercise, and the main difference between the two types of tests is the level of intensity involved.
During a PNOÉ test at rest, the individual is typically required to sit or lie down while breathing through a mouthpiece connected to a metabolic analyzer. The individual is asked to avoid exercise 24 hours before the test and fast for at least 8 hours for accurate results. The metabolic analyzer measures the amount of oxygen consumed and carbon dioxide produced, providing information about the individual’s resting metabolic rate, respiratory quotient (RQ), and substrate utilization (fat versus carbohydrate metabolism). This type of test is primarily used to determine an individual’s basal metabolic rate (BMR) and to identify any underlying metabolic abnormalities. It also guides our team at AdvancedYOU Superhuman BioHacking in Dallas in developing a customized nutrition plan based on how your body utilizes the food you eat at rest or during moderately lower levels of activity.
On the other hand, during a PNOÉ exercise test at AdvancedYOU Superhuman BioHacking in Dallas, the individual performs physical activity while wearing a mask or mouthpiece connected to the metabolic analyzer. The level of intensity is progressively increased, and the metabolic analyzer measures the amount of oxygen consumed and carbon dioxide produced during the activity. This type of test is used to assess an individual’s aerobic fitness level, maximum oxygen uptake (VO2 max), anaerobic threshold, lactate threshold, and calorie-burning capacity. The results can be used to tailor an individual’s exercise program to optimize their training and achieve their fitness goals. We can also use this test to assess changes in fitness levels after prescribed exercise programs or using superhuman protocol or ARX fit.
