Resting Metabolic Rate Analysis
Conducted using CardioCoachCO2 equipment our RMR analysis uses an established protocol to determine your
energy expenditure at rest. This provides a baseline of your nutritional requirements.
The Resting Metabolic Rate Test determines the amount of energy (calories) your body utilises at rest by measuring O2 uptake and CO2 output. The test identifies: the heart rates where most bodyfat is burned; the calories burned at rest and the type of fuel (fats c.f. carbohydrates) burned; how many calories to eat to put on weight whilst avoiding putting on bodyfat or to lose weight without going into starvation mode.
It is advisable not to eat or drink (save water) for 8-12 hours before and exercise should be avoided the day before. You will relax in a chair, wearing a face mask and heart rate monitor, whilst your O2 uptake, CO2 output, and heart rate are taken for 15-20 mins. It is very important that you remain as relaxed as possible to get the most accurate results.
