Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) Testing

Metabolic Rate is a measure of how much food, or fat, is converted to energy in a day. Resting metabolic rate (RMR) is the measurement of how much food, or energy, is required to maintain basic body functions such as heartbeat, breathing and maintenance of body heart while in a state of rest. That energy is expressed in calories per day. A RMR test shows how many calories a person burns at rest, doing nothing more than sitting in a chair.

To achieve/maintain a healthy weight for optimal cardiovascular health, this information is important to pinpoint a caloric weight loss zone, stabilize weight loss achieved, assess effects of weight loss on metabolism and assist in the detection and diagnosis of hypo-metabolism.
