What is RMR Testing?
Your Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) is essentially the amount of calories it takes for you to maintain basic bodily functions and it represents the approximate amount of calories you would burn if you were to lie in bed all day for 24 hours doing absolutely nothing. RMR Testing reveals your Resting Metabolic Rate.
Why Is It Important to Know Your RMR?
It is important to know what your RMR is especially if your goal is weight loss, because it can estimate how many calories you need to consume and not exceed to reach that specific weight goal.
Is the Test Easy?
Yes. All you have to do is sit in a chair and relax for about 10 minutes. Breathe in and breathe out. That’s it. We use a machine called the Core Cardio Coach to measure how much oxygen you take in and expel during a 10 minute period and then determine how much this equals over a 24 hour period. It is the most precise method out there for determining RMR.
