Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR)


What is a Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) Test?

The resting metabolic rate (RMR) test provides how many calories your body burns at rest in order to perform the most basic functions (respiration, circulation, body temperature, muscular activity, and other important functions of your body). Your resting metabolic rate changes based on your gender, body size, and diet.
