What is an RMR?
RMR stands for Resting Metabolic Rate.
Why should I care about my RMR?
Because it can tell you how many calories you need to lose weight. You can't manage what you don't measure.
How does the RMR test work?
Easy! Lie down on your back and breath into a tube. The machine will then measure what's called your gas exchange. Basically, this is the amount of oxygen that your body draws in, relative to the amount of C02 your body releases.
What will the RMR test do for me?
After this test is complete, you will know exactly how many calories your body burns at rest. You will then be able to develop a nutritional plan that is specific to your needs. Having a manageable caloric intake will ultimately help you drop body fat.
Who would have thought that breathing into a little tube would make reaching your racing goals that much easier :)
