Resting Metabolic Rate Test (RMR)
Resting metabolism is the energy required by your body to perform the most basic functions when your body is at rest. These essential functions include things like breathing, circulating blood or basic brain functions. This test will measure your metabolic rate with a non-invasive breath test. The test will require an early morning appointment, prior to eating food, consuming caffeine, or exercising. Our Registered Dietitian can help you sort the results into meaningful changes that you can make to meet your weight loss or weight gain goals. You can request an RMR test here. In this online form, please request a Nutrition Consult and mention your desire for the RMR testing in the comments box. We will follow up with you to schedule your appointment.

We have programs to choose from depending on your need and level of interaction you are seeking.
