Do alternatives to metabolism measurements actually work?
Are there other ways to know metabolism without measuring it?
Dr. Sachiko St. Jeor, co-creator of the Mifflin St. Jeor calculator, reveals differences between a calculation and an actual measurement can be as much as hundreds of calories. Check out the poster here.
Meanwhile, a team of researchers, led by Banner Health’s Dr. Soto, demonstrate the major pitfalls of using a body composition analyzer to estimate metabolism for patients undergoing bariatric surgery. You can read the details here.
Success Story: Dennis
We love to hear about the experiences of our Breezing users. This is Dennis’s inspiring success story, in his own words.
“My name is Dennis Bell. I am 67 years old in excellent physical condition and health but not too many years ago I couldn’t say that.
I remember returning to my hometown of Knoxville Tennessee over 4 years ago after spending almost 3 years in Washington State on my last consulting engineer assignment before retiring at age 62. Although I was elated to return to my hometown, I had let my weight get out of hand. I weighed 289 lbs.

Success Story: Jessica and Andrew
Just in time for Valentine’s Day – the story of one couple who lost weight together.
Tucson, Arizona. Breezing users since June 2014
I’ve struggled with weight loss for the better part of my adult life and I wanted to figure out a way to control it. I realized I was getting older and I wanted to be healthy as I grew older – to decrease my risk of stroke and cardiovascular disease.
In the past, I’ve done Weight Watchers twice – and even though I was successful both times, the weight came back on again. I’ve also tried the high protein diet – twice. Of course, everyone tries the high protein diet, but eventually, you have to eat carbs again, so then the diet fails. I’ve also done the tried-and-true: old-fashioned exercise and watching what you eat – not carefully counting calories, just watching what you eat. I’ve probably made between 5 and 7 attempts in the last 12 years or so.
What was different about losing weight this time?
