About the RMR Test
How does it work?
The human body consumes a fixed amount of oxygen per calorie burned
By measuring the amount of oxygen you exhale, the exact number of calories you are burning each day is determined
What happens during the test?
You simply sit back, relax and breathe…really.
During the test, the air you breathe out is analyzed to determine exactly how much oxygen your body consumed
The actual RMR test takes approximately 10 minutes
What do I get?
Once completed, your metabolic rate is used to calculate your Target Caloric Zones, complete with color charts and graphs explaining what you burn and how much you should eat
Your Zones will show you how to eat the maximum amount of food possible and still lose weight
The test also yields a comparison of how your metabolic rate matches up with others of your sex, age, height and weight
Preparing for the test
1. Do not eat 3 hour before the test
2. Avoid exercise on the day of your test
3. Avoid the intake of caffeine and other stimulants on the day of your test
During the test
Relax and breathe…that is really all there is to it.
