Resting Metabolic Rate

Resting Metabolic Rate: 

Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) assessment calculates an individuals energy (calorie) use at rest. Testing is done with a metabolic cart, which measures the oxygen use and carbon dioxide production. This assessment provides an estimate of an individual's baseline caloric needs, as well as substrate utilization (i.e., proportion of carbohydrate to fat being burned) at rest.
