Do you need to know your rate of metabolism and your daily caloric needs in order to lose or gain weight? With a simple test, which lasts 12 minutes, we can determine your rate of metabolism and daily caloric needs. Using the results from your  RMR test, you can determine how many calories per day you need to lose or gain weight.

Determining your daily caloric needs also comes in handy for endurance athletes or those who play sports so you know not only your daily caloric needs but how many added calories you need to fuel your sport and recover well. This would include determining calories needed during the pre-race carb loading phase before a marathon, ultra marathon or long distance triathlon.

No matter what your current fitness level,  determining your Resting Metabolic Rate can help you get a better feel for exactly how many calories you should be eating and fueling up with every day.

How can I benefit from a Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) Test?
Your RMR or resting metabolic rate (also know as basal metabolic rate) represents the calories your body uses to maintain vital body functions (heart rate, brain function, breathing). In simple terms, it is the number of calories a person would burn if awake, but at rest, all day without any activity or exercise.

The RMR test is a simple test lasting 12 minutes which involves breathing into an airtight mask while your oxygen consumption is measured. The higher your resting metabolic rate, the more calories you burn. This test is a great way to measure the effectiveness of your current nutrition and exercise program. No more averages or guessing about how many calories you should consume each day to hit your goal weight.

Your results are immediate and include the following:

 How many calories you burn at rest.

 Rating of your metabolism (ability to burn calories) as normal, slow, or fast.

 How your current metabolism rate compares to with others your gender and age.

 Guidelines to assist you in reaching your goal weight based on daily caloric needs.
