Provide insight to your overall fat burning at rest!

The Resting Metabolic Rate test (RMR) determines the amount of energy (calories) your body is using at rest. This measurement is made by analyzing the amount of oxygen your body uses and the amount of carbon dioxide your body produces. Almost all of the energy your body produces is created through aerobic (oxygen utilizing) metabolism. The oxygen is combined with carbohydrates and fats to make energy in your body’s tissues. This energy is used to keep your organs and tissues working properly. When carbohydrates and fats are broken down to make energy carbon dioxide is produced. The percentage of the energy created from carbohydrates and fats can be determined by measuring the carbon dioxide your body produces.

What can a Resting Metabolic Rate test tell me?
The results of a Resting Metabolic Rate test can tell you if your body primarily uses fats or carbohydrates for energy. This information can be used to determine the amount of calories you need to eat each day to maintain or lose weight. Metabolic Health Coaches and Dieticians often use this information when designing daily nutrition plans for clients. The results may also indicate that you have a medical condition affecting your metabolism. Diabetes, under or over active thyroid, COPD, heart disease, mitochondrial disorders, and obesity are some common conditions that may alter your metabolism. Doctors may use the RMR to determine if certain medications are influencing your metabolic rate or if medical nutrition therapy is needed to improve your metabolism.
