RMR - RESTING METABOLIC RATE basic
The Resting Metabolic Rate test is a 20 minute test, which
requires you to lie down whilst we analyse your breath.
RESTING METABOLIC RATE TEST(RMR): This test
provides accurate data to the exact amount of calories
you use at rest, and how efficiently your body burns fat
and carbohydrate whilst at rest.
