Resting Metabolic Rate test

Trying to lose body fat, but unsure how many calories you should be consuming?

The Resting Metabolic Rate test (RMR) determines the amount of energy (calories) your body is using to perform the essential body functions when your body is at rest. These essential functions include things like breathing, liver function, maintaining lean mass, circulating blood or basic brain functions. This measurement is made by analysing the amount of oxygen your body uses and the amount of carbon dioxide your body produces. The results will provide caloric targets for weight loss SPECIFIC TO YOU.

The Resting Metabolic Rate test (RMR)

Everyone’s resting metabolic rate is different. Factors that affect your resting metabolic rate include your weight, gender, age and body composition. For example, someone who is very large and muscular needs more energy (more calories) to maintain his body at rest than someone who is very small. This information can be used to determine the amount of calories YOU need to eat each day to maintain or lose weight. To measure the amount of oxygen your body is using and carbon dioxide it is producing, you will be asked to wear a face mask that covers your mouth and nose. Vigorous activities and the consumption of food and drink may influence your metabolic rate and should be avoided for at least two hours before taking the test. You will be wearing a heart rate monitor during the test, so be sure to wear clothing that allows access to your chest.
