Losing weight has never been so easy…and scientific!
What is RMR?
This is your resting metabolic rate – the speed of your metabolism. A higher number means your metabolism is faster, burning more calories each day. A lower number means your metabolism is slower, burning fewer calories. Your metabolism is 100% unique to you. To lose, gain, or maintain weight, measuring your resting metabolism is the first step.
What does this test tell me?
- Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR)
- Daily Calorie Goal for weight loss
- Daily Exercise Goal
- Target Date to achieve desired weight
- Energy Source – This comes from your Respiratory Quotient (RQ), which tells you whether your body is burning carbohydrates, fats, or a mix of both. Your Energy Source gives a better picture about the food you’re metabolizing, so you know how it affects your overall weight, mood, and health. After all, you are what you eat.
- Metabolic History – Metabolism changes. When you exercise to build muscle, your resting metabolism can rise. When you lose muscle from dieting or as you age, your resting metabolism can drop. What’s important is that you know. Make sure your metabolism is on track with your weight, activity, and dieting goals. Knowledge is power. Re-test as your body changes.
