Resting Metabolic Rate Testing

Your Resting Metabolic Rate (also known as Basal Metabolic Rate) is the amount of calories your body burns at rest, simply in order to function. The RMR test involves measuring your breathing in order to determine your energy consumption. While there are formulas and methods to estimate your RMR, this test is significantly more accurate than any of those methods.
