Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) or Indirect Calorimeter is a VITAL SIGN for treating Unhealthy Weight
A simple 10-minute RMR test can accurately pinpoint how many calories a patient needs to consume to lose weight.
In 2006, the Northwestern Comprehensive Center on Obesity tested the RMR of 76 of their female patients. 17% of them would not have lost weight on the standard “1200-calorie a day” diet. In fact, they probably would have gained from 5 to 32 pounds in one year. Yet there were no other indicators that set them apart from those who could lose weight on that same diet.
It is desirable to measure a person’s metabolic rate at a true resting level. To ensure one is at rest, we recommend the following preparation prior to your test:
- Avoid eating a meal 4 hours before the test.
- Avoid exercising on the day of testing.
- If possible, avoid the use of stimulants such as caffeine prior to testing.
During the test
- It will be important to get into a comfortable position and relax as much as possible.
- Keep lips sealed lightly around the mouthpiece. It is important that all the air breathed out is analyzed.
