RESTING METABOLIC RATE TESTING
Ready to discover the key to understanding your body's unique metabolic function? Introducing the game-changing RMR Test, your passport to unlocking the secrets of your metabolism in less than 15 minutes!
An RMR test, also known as a Resting Metabolic Rate test, is a way to measure how many calories your body burns when you're at rest. Put another way, it helps us understand how much energy your body needs to function while you're not doing any physical activity. Knowing your resting metabolic rate can be useful for a few reasons. First, it gives you a better idea of how many calories your body needs to maintain your current weight. This information can help you make more informed decisions about your diet and exercise routine. For example, if you want to lose weight, you can adjust your calorie intake and physical activity based on your RMR. It also helps you set realistic goals for weight management and provides guidance for creating a personalized plan.
Here's how it works:
During the test, you'll need to sit or lie down comfortably and relax. You'll breathe into a special machine called a metabolic analyzer, which measures the amount of oxygen you take in and the amount of carbon dioxide you breathe out. Based on these measurements, the machine can estimate how many calories your body is using.
For optimal results, we recommend following a few simple guidelines.
To ensure the most accurate assessment, it's best to avoid caffeine, alcohol, nicotine, and other stimulating drugs prior to the test. Additionally, we ask that you refrain from exercising before the test. We want to examine your resting metabolic rate in its purest form, unaffected by physical exertion. And lastly, no eating or drinking prior to the test. By doing so, we obtain an accurate baseline measurement, free from the influence of digestion. Following any specific instructions provided by the clinician or healthcare professional conducting the test is crucial to ensure accuracy.
