RMR Metabolic Health Test
Each and every person’s metabolic rate is unique. So it makes sense that individuals have a different level of efficiency at which their body converts food into energy. Factors that contribute to this efficiency can include a person’s weight, age, body composition, hormone levels, and gender. Due to the uniqueness of this number, it can be nearly impossible to calculate your metabolic rate all on your own. There is no cause to worry because DexaFit offers the comprehensive resting metabolic rate test, which is far more accurate than any and all formula-based RMR/BMR estimates that are out there.
What is the Resting Metabolic Rate Test?
The RMR test is a 15 to 20 minute breath test that is administered while you are simply sitting or even lying comfortably in a chair at your local DexaFit Lab. At your appointment, you will be breathing into a mask where the air that you breathe out is analyzed to discover the amount of oxygen and CO2 it takes for your body to consume and expend, as well as how many calories you are burning.
The entire RMR testing process is incredibly simple and will not interrupt your day in the slightest. The only protocol necessary involves fasting (with the exception of water) for five hours and avoiding any and all exercise or caffeine prior to the RMR analysis. Once the test has started, all you have to do is sit and breathe for 10 minutes, and the rest is up to DexaFit’s efficient and accurate technology. After about 15 minutes, you will have the answers you’ve been looking for when it comes to your body and what is best for it.
Why the Resting Metabolic Rate Test is Important
Learning your metabolic rate is a huge step in creating a weight loss plan that is specifically unique to you and your body. Whether or not you have large or small weight loss goals, this newfound knowledge is exactly what you need in order to reach them and be a healthier version of yourself. With the resting metabolic rate test, you’ll have a better understanding of what your body is capable of. You will learn if you have a slow, normal, or fast metabolism, whether you’re a fat burner or sugar burner, how many calories you burn at a resting heart rate, and any additional metabolic health risks that you should be wary of. Ultimately, knowing your body’s strengths and weaknesses will help you live a happier and healthier lifestyle.
