Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR)Test
Why an RMR will help you breakthrough to nutritional success.
Metabolism is the process of converting food (calories) into energy. The efficiency with which your body does this is referred to as your metabolic rate. A resting metabolic rate test (RMR) will identify how many calories your unique physiology burns at rest which accounts for approximately 70% of your daily calories. Based on your RMR and gas exchange from your breathing, our state of the art KORR machine can estimate your specific calorie burn during daily activities and exercise. Your gas exchange from your breath also helps to identify how much sugar or fat your body burns for fuel and in what ratios. With that information, you can craft a very prescriptive nutrition and exercise plan to define and achieve your goals. Real data, real plans and real results.
What are the key benefits of an RMR test?
Eliminate the guessing game
Take the guesswork out of your dieting and exercise – specific caloric guidelines based on your unique physiology.
Set Effective Goals
Set specific calorie goals to safely and effectively move towards your where you want to be
Precision and Accuracy
Redefine or validate your nutritional guidelines and adjust your requirements accordingly
With the information you gain from an RMR test, you can eliminate the guesswork of dieting and exercise. You can set daily calorie targets to increase, maintain or decrease your total body mass. You’ll know what your nutritional requirements are as well as how much and how long to exercise.
How it works and How to Prepare
The RMR test requires you to sit as comfortably and quietly as possible for 15-20 minutes while breathing into a tube. Your breath will have a unique signature from the percentage of carbohydrates and fat you’re burning while at rest. So it’s a tremendous amount of really useful information and all you need to do is sit and breath! Here’s what you need to know:
Make an appointment and show up on time
Make sure you’ve followed the pre-test protocol of:
Avoid eating or drinking anything other than water for at least 4 hours before the test
Avoid exercise prior to the test
Avoid the use of stimulants including caffeine
- For the test you’ll recline in a chair with your eyes closed and breath steadily into a tube
Immediately review and discuss your results with the lab technician

An RMR test is an incredible tool in your arsenal for optimizing your health. When you combine it with a DEXA scan and VO2 test, it creates a powerful combination of health, nutrition and exercise information that’s completely based on your unique physiology. You’ll understand where your body composition is starting from, what the caloric impact of your nutrition and exercise choices are, and the exact zones/intensities you should be working out at.
