I've been into fitness and nutrition for 15+ years and have spent a lot of time testing, tweaking and adjusting my diet and the type of exercise I do. Even with that level of investment, I still felt stuck - I was doing all of the "right" things but wasn't seeing results. I was excited to see the Kahm Clinic here in Burlington because they have technology that allows you to measure your metabolism and pair that with expert advice. I suspected the reason I was stuck had something to do with calorie intake. Even with 15 or so years of trial in error, you can't get any better than hard data. Turns out I was eating significantly less than I should have been. After working with Bret, my at-rest metabolism improved by SEVEN HUNDRED calories in about 6 months. I'm adding muscle and burning fat, finally getting my metabolism going. The time and energy spent on guesswork without data and without Bret coaching you will cost more than booking an appointment today. Go do it!Read More
“I’ve had an outstanding and enlightening experience with the Kahm Clinic. I met with Elaina, their dietician, who tested my metabolic rate and body composition. I went in with little expectations but came out with more than I could have imagined! Elaina taught me so much about myself and my eating habits and every time I leave her office, I feel more and more informed and excited to make small changes. In the past, I’ve always eaten relatively healthy, but didn’t realize I wasn’t eating the RIGHT type of healthy foods. There were so many things I wasn’t eating in an effort to be “healthy” that I was actually setting my body up to fail and slowing my metabolism way down. Elaina explains everything in way that is understandable and makes you feel empowered to want to make a positive change – that is actually achievable. She has totally changed the way I think about nutrition and exercise. I have more energy, get a workout in almost everyday, and moreover, feel like I am consciously fueling my body instead of just eating because I have to. Highly recommend the Kahm Clinic!”Read More
“Karen and the Kahm Clinic are highly recommended! I have a complicated medical history and I felt confident in the care and advice I was receiving from an expert in her field. The clinic is a perfect balance of custom designed individual programs and a state-of-the-art diagnostics. Go see for yourself!”
“I have been going to the Kahm clinic now for a few months and it is absolutely wonderful! I have been working with Karen Newman, a world class athlete, on my general nutrition. She is super enthusiastic and makes the experience fun! My muscles have never been so big, I have never felt so strong and my back, that was chronically in pain, is no longer in pain! If you are at all interested in nutrition and having a health coach, I highly recommend the Kahm clinic. Well worth the wait to get in.”Read More
“I've been coming to the Kahm Clinic to work with my nutritionist, Bret, for a few weeks and already feel such a difference in my overall health. Bret does a fantastic job helping me with my nutrition and goals as an athlete, and the metabolic test and body composition analysis have truly made me understand my body and learn how to properly fuel it. I'm so grateful for all the help!”
”After 20 years of unhealthy eating habits and a very unhealthy relationship with food, The Kahm clinic has changed all of that for me. I meet with Elaina, who is encouraging, real, and knowledgeable. I’ve learned so much about my body and how it functions now, in a way I’ve never known. And I studied nutrition for a year! They are the best. :)”Read More
"Both the Body Composition Analysis and the Metabolic Test made a world of difference in the perception of my body and my health. Looking at a number on a scale can only indicate so much about how your body is operating.
What I didn’t know was that my hunger was so silent that eating according to my hunger meant eating well beneath my needs. I now eat without fear or anxiety because I know if my body is hungry, it needs energy, and it’s my job to respond.
No matter how incredibly little I ate, down to 1000 kcal/day, I was still gaining weight. Once I understood what was happening to my body as a result of years of restricting, my motivation became one of health. I wanted to be the strongest person I could be."
“Working with Elaina has been such an unbelievably positive experience. Her advice has shifted my eating habits significantly (for the better) and I have been able to implement her recommendations through the various stages of my life from pregnancy, to nursing, and just as my regular old self. I look forward to every visit, she’s basically my therapist. The metabolic testing has been so eye opening, it took so much of the guesswork out. Previously I was always taking shots in the dark about how much I should be eating, this eliminates that entirely. So relieved to have found Elaina and the Kahm Clinic.”Read More
"If not for the use of Metabolic Testing and Body Composition Analysis approach to compel our daughter to persevere, she would not be completely healed, and instead prone to chronic anorexia."
"These were the first tests that ever indicated that there was something wrong. My bloodwork was always normal despite that I might purge as many as ten times per day."
