RMR is the number of calories your body burns at rest over the course of 24 hours. The rate at which your body burns calories is unique to you.
This takes the guesswork out of dieting by determining the daily amount of calories you burn at complete rest. This is ideal for individuals who want to lose, gain, or maintain weight. By knowing your metabolic rate, you are able to determine the right number of calories needed for your body and metabolism.
Once your metabolic test is completed, the information will be used to calculate your Target Caloric Zones. With these zones, you can learn what it means to “eat your metabolism.” You will be able to eat the maximum possible and still lose weight.
Your body will be happy, healthy and satisfied. The pounds will melt off! And keeping the weight off is no longer a struggle, because you can implement a customized plan that fits your body’s precise caloric expenditures.
CO2 testing can be ran alongside an RMR test. This analysis will determine what percentage of carbohydrates and fats your body uses. The more fats our bodies use as fuel the more fat loss will occur. When our bodies use carbohydrates, it can pull them from muscle, depleting the muscle.
The human body naturally burns more calories each day to maintain a pound of muscle than it does to maintain a pound of fat. Therefore, the more muscle you build, the more calories your body will naturally burn each day at rest.
Which means, by building and maintaining muscle, you’ll increase your metabolism and turn your body into a fat burning machine versus a carbohydrate burning machine. You can see your percentages gravitate towards more favorable balances through multiple testing as you tweak your eating and fitness regimes.
