WHAT IS A RESTING METABOLIC RATE TEST?
THE SCIENCE BEHIND RMR TESTING
The gold standard for any health and fitness goal involving weight management, is the resting metabolic rate test or RMR, using an indirect calorimeter. During this RMR test, the air you exhale is analyzed to determine how efficiently your body converts food (calories) into energy. Because of the direct relationship between oxygen consumption and calories burned, the RMR test is an extremely valuable tool for weight management. After completing the test, an exact target calorie zone will be set to ensure weight loss, maintenance, or gain, depending on your goals. You will also be given personal strategies on how to maximize your metabolism, as well as a general health appraisal.
WHY TEST YOUR METABOLISM?
Measuring your resting metabolic rate allows your wellness practitioner to construct an effective eating strategy based on your body's individual caloric needs.
Resting metabolic rate testing can screen for a slowed metabolism that may explain frustrated attempts to lose weight in the past.
RMR testing can reveal changes in your metabolism during the weight loss process which can help troubleshoot a frustrating plateau.
Once you reach your goal, a resting metabolic rate test can give you the precise caloric prescription to help you sustain your goal weight.
