In brief: Check metabolic rate

The formal medical method to calculate one's metabolic rate is to use a breath test that can measure the amount of calories that one is using up in a resting state.
(known as the resting metabolic rate). This may determine whether your metabolism has changed over time. The results of the test can predict how many calories used at rest, at moderate exercise, intense exercises, etc.
