Before we begin discussing exercise and weight loss, let us first make clear that exercise, whether through strenuous running or light walking, produces many positive effects. These include a lower risk for many diseases, improved mental health and cognitive ability, alleviation of many chronic pains and improved utilisation of oxygen by the cells. However exercise has long been considered an integral component of weight management, but available evidence suggests that exercise alone is not an effective way to lose weight.
How we respond to diet and exercise is determined by our metabolism and, understanding this can lead to greater progress and long-term health improvements.
The following article explores the reasons behind why some people slog it out in the gym day in day out yet get zero results .
If you're trying to lose weight but struggle – the answer could lie in a simple breath test.

Last week 7 News Perth and Sunrise featured our lead technology ECAL in a news piece about weight loss.
The news article which was even trailed during the weekend’s footy, featured Brendan, one of our MHS Baldivis clients who was interviewed about his weight loss and how the information from ECAL testing had helped him to keep the weight off, by understanding what to eat and when to exercise. What the film did not cover however, was that during this journey with MHS, Brendan’s liver function which had been poor and required regular monitoring for nearly 10 years, was now normal, a fact commented on by his GP!
The article also featured Perth GP Dr Joe Kosterich and Dietitian Dr Nicola Lowth. Nicola has now used ECAL in clinical practice for more than two years. Both health professionals explained how relevant data from devices like ECAL can help achieve quicker and better patient outcomes.
