Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR)
A RMR is a gas chamber analysis that measures expired CO2 in order to determine your metabolic rate.
A RMR will tell you the amount of calories your body burns at rest, in a 24-hour period. This value is used to program your daily calories and macronutrients to achieve your goals.
Prep instructions are emailed prior to your appointment and below.
- Avoid eating or drinking (except water) for a minimum of 6 hours before the test.
- Avoid exercising on the day of testing.
- Avoid the use of stimulants such as caffeine prior to testing.
- Wear comfortable clothing as you will be reclined and in a relaxed state.
- Optimal testing time is in the morning.
Your appointment is scheduled for 30 minutes. Your RMR will take 15 minutes.
You will be in a seated or reclined position and hold as still as possible (“at rest”) for the duration of the RMR. You will breathe into a tube and have your nose clamped. New breathing tubes are used for each client and disposed of after use.
