Metabolic testing is becoming more popular because of its focus on using data to manage health and fitness. Historically, these tests were difficult, costly, and only available to athletes or by medical referral. Track Your Max of Webster, Texas deploys modern, cutting-edge technology and diagnostics to empower our patients to measure and manage their health and weight in a personalized way. Dr. Priyanka Gauravi and Dr. Smriti Choudhary specializes in health management and provides accurate and affordable RMR testing to Houston and the surrounding communities to support your wellness goals.
What is an RMR Test?
RMR stands for Resting Metabolic Rate. RMR tests are highly accurate measurements of the calories we burn while resting, the speed or slowness of our metabolism, and the percentage of calories we burn that are from fat or carbohydrate. This test has benefits for individuals who are attempting to lose weight healthily, for early detection or confirmation of a metabolic disorder, and for athletes who want to stay at the forefront of nutrition and training in order to maximize performance.
3 Reasons to Do Metabolic Testing
Reason 1: Establishing Your Baseline
Most people have a very clear image of what they want to look like or what their goal weight is, but many do not know what the process is to get there. If you don’t know where you are starting from, it’s hard to know where to go. An RMR test will establish a baseline from which you can track your progress. Tracking your progress helps keep you motivated, but even more importantly, it can help you find the most effective and efficient exercise and dieting program. With regular RMR tests, you are taking your body’s feedback into account when making wellness decisions.
Reason 2: Wellness, Efficiency, and Limitation Tracking
Simply stated, metabolic testing allows you to track your wellness & performance progress. The test results show your body’s response to your nutrition and exercise efforts. The RMR test can also give you a broad overview of how your heart, lungs, and other organs are functioning at rest.
After adopting changes to your lifestyle, your results can show if there are potential health issues that are affecting your progress. Metabolic disorders like diabetes or hormonal imbalances can be playing a role in your body composition and resting metabolic rate. If identified, those issues and limitations can be addressed and a more fitting nutrition and exercise plan can be introduced. This will lead to more efficient efforts to improve your performance and well-being.
Reason 3: Personalized Training Programs
30-Day challenges and fad diets are tempting to jump into with high hopes, but each person’s goals and starting point are different. Finding the right balance will yield the best results and reduce and prevent injuries, decreased performance, energy imbalance, and a number of other unwanted results. RMR testing provides an objective and systematic approach that places checks and balances in our training choices to avoid wasting time and money.
A sluggish metabolism or a lack of fat burning from eating too little or overtraining require different changes. A cardiovascular limitation should be addressed differently than a respiratory, or metabolic limitation. You can only manage what we measure.
Metabolic testing is one of the most effective ways to utilize our personal data to calibrate our nutrition and fitness endeavors and direct us in the proper direction. This testing is now more accessible, and as a result, it can be repeated to adjust your course of action as limitations and goals evolve.
Metabolic testing is a reliable, accurate, and insightful method of discovering yourself. It allows you to determine the exact degree to which all of your organ systems are in sync. It assists you in understanding your internal workings and identifying if anything is out of tune and disrupting our internal harmony. This allows you to specifically and uniquely alter your nutrition and training and adjust as many times as necessary to achieve your health, fitness, and performance goals. Track Your Max doesn’t want you to waste time, effort, and money following Instagram “experts” when the technology used by elite athletes is only a few minutes away.
