Advanced Report: 110EUR
The resting metabolic rate test is used to determine an accurate calorie intake required for a client’s basic requirements, from which a suitable daily calorie intake can be determined.
People looking to lose weight need to maintain a healthy calorie deficit. The target calorie amount will be identified by the RMR test. The RMR test will also reveal the client’s rate of metabolism. Increasing your metabolic rate is one of the important factors associated with successful and lasting weight loss.
The diet and exercise plan can be manipulated to increase the rate of metabolism and also bring about a calorie deficit.
Each resting metabolic rate test will take 10mins. Clients can combine this test with a nutrition consultation to complete the picture. If combining this test with a nutrition consultation, you will be asked to record a five-day food diary. The food diary and RMR test results are used during the nutrition consultation to help steer you in the right direction for your desired goal.
The Advanced report goes into a lot more detail including a breakdown of your macronutrient ratios depending on your goals. Click the below link to download an example Advanced RMR report.

What to expect
Every test needs a retest
The real benefit to all of this is making the necessary changes based on your initial RMR test and then undergoing a retest in 8 weeks to examine the improvements and to suggest further changes to ensure ongoing success. The ratio of fats:carbs can be positively altered by increasing the volume of low intensity exercise with the inclusion of short intervals of high intensity combined with dietary changes. This ratio will be monitored at the retest to ensure it is going in the right direction. With regards to metabolic rate, this can be enhanced with a resistance exercise program, or increasing caloric intake if previously too low.
Initial and follow up RMR : €155
Initial plus follow up at 8 weeks and again at 16 weeks : €210
