Don’t Just Blame Your Metabolism

Don’t Just Blame Your Metabolism

Your resting metabolic rate (RMR) is the number of calories (energy) that your body uses at rest. At rest, your body still needs to support basic functions, such as heartbeat, breathing and maintaining body temperature.

But unlike other ways of estimating your RMR, we measure your individual metabolism directly. Our metabolic cart measures your caloric needs by assessing the amount of oxygen inhaled and carbon dioxide exhaled, which determines calories expended. Once we know this, we can set specific daily calorie targets for weight loss.
