The MetaCheck was developed by Korr and is the gold standard device for measuring resting metabolic rate (RMR). Using indirect calorimetry, this equipment determines actual metabolic rate (precisely how many calories your body needs to maintain and/or lose or gain weight).
Sample Results Sheet:
This is a sample results page that can help you understand how your specific metabolism works and how to make metabolic adjustments in your favor to optimize health and weight.
What to know prior to testing:
It is desirable to measure a person’s metabolic rate at a true resting level. To ensure one is at rest, we recommend the following preparation:
- Avoid eating a meal 4 hours before the test.
- Avoid exercising on the day of testing.
- If possible, avoid the use of stimulants such as caffeine prior to testing.
