Resting Metabolic Rate Test and RMR Metabolic Testing at Live Lean Rx
The Key to Your Nutritional Success
A Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) test should be the foundation of any sensible eating and overall nutritional strategy. The number of calories your body burns at rest accounts for roughly 70% of your total caloric burn throughout the day. By knowing your RMR, we can determine a calorie target that is specific to your unique physiology, and appropriate for your health and fitness goals.
How many calories do you burn at rest? The Live Lean Rx Resting Metabolic Rate Test (RMR) helps you identify precisely how many calories your body requires to simply exist; breath, carry out subconscious metabolic processes, etc. Accounting for approximately 70% of the calories you burn daily, now you can get an even better idea of target calories to burn during your daily activity and exercise.
Eliminate the guesswork. An individual’s requirement for energy and how they burn that energy is different for everyone and depends on their exercise regimens. If you are unaware of how many calories you bring in or burn during a 24 hour period, accomplishing your health, fitness, and physique goals can be quite daunting.
Fine tune your exercise and nutrition programs. By understanding your RMR you now have the ability to tighten up your specific nutritional requirements based on the type of exercises you do, how long you do them and how often. We will also help you identify your Physical Activity Level (PAL), which will help us help you in determining your daily caloric intake. Pair this test with one of our Food Allery Tests and you are equipped with some seriously beneficial information!
How It Works
It’s a quick, comfortable 10 – 15-minute breath-by-breath analysis test conducted at rest. We capture the number of calories that you are capable of burning while in a rested state and provide you with an actionable report that you can use to improve your exercise and nutritional regimens. Additionally, you will learn what % of carbohydrates vs. fats you are using while at rest.
What We Measure
At Live Lean Rx we deploy precision-based breath-by-breath testing to measure the number of calories that you burn at rest while simultaneously determining what % of carbohydrates vs. fats you are capable of burning.
- Metabolic Rate (RMR)
Your metabolic rate (RMR) is the total number of calories your body is capable of burning while at rest. It represents the baseline number of calories you require to perform normal, every day and subconscious processes such as metabolic processes and breathing. It is also commonly known as the number of calories you need to maintain your lean muscle mass.
- Metabolism Comparison
Your LiveLeanRx RMR report enables to see how your metabolic rate compares to a typical person of similar sex, age, height, and weight. Do you have a slow, normal or fast metabolism?
- Lifestyle & Activity Calories
By determining your RMR, we are able to estimate the number of calories you burn while performing your daily tasks and activities such as working, engaging in your hobbies, walking, climbing stairs, etc. Your lifestyle and activity factors account for a considerable portion of the calories you burn daily.
- Caloric Target Zones
Everyone sets different goals and require different plans to get there. Either way, your metabolic rate report can also enable you to set targets and goals so you can better understand how to maintain your current weight, lose weight or be within a medically supervised zone. Keep in mind, these targets and zones are different for everyone. Get your RMR test and see what yours look like!
- Exercise Calories
Another estimation and projection we can assume based on your resting metabolic rate is the approximate number of calories you burn during exercise. Please keep in mind, this is considerably different for each person and depends on the type of exercises you do. In general, we estimate this based on the calories you would burn during 30 minutes of moderate exercise.
Resting Metabolic Rate Benefits
At Live Lean Rx, we prioritize your health, fitness and overall well-being by providing you with some of the best information available on the market. Our RMR testing is some of the most actionable data we can place at your fingertips.
- Customize your programs
Create a customized and fine-tuned approach to your workout and eating routines.
- Validate your preferred eating style
For example, you may prefer a ketogenic eating and nutritional style. By knowing the % of carbohydrates vs. fats you are capable of burning at rest, you can gain a better understanding of whether or not you are in or close to a ketogenic state while at rest.
- Minimize your frustration
Your metabolic speed or speed of your metabolism can provide insight into why you may have struggled to lose weight or effectively achieve your goals in the past.
- Track your metabolism over time
Many of our clients prefer to restest on a quarterly basis, every 90 days, during their weight loss journey, fitness journey or otherwise in order to understand how their efforts have changed their metabolic rate or speed of their metabolism.
- Overcome Plateaus
We all get stuck in a rut at times, which can be wildly discouraging. Know your RMR and metabolic rate can help you make the adjustments you need to overcome stagnant progress.
- Maintain with more ease
Once you have reached your goals, understanding your resting metabolic rate can help you efficiently and effectively maintain your current weight and fitness level.
