What is Resting Metabolic Rate?
Resting metabolic rate (also called RMR) is the rate at which your body burns energy when it is at complete rest.
Have you ever seen the biggest loser reunion?.
Neither have I ..let me try to shake up your perception to successful weight loss, below are three major elements of the health & fitness triangle.
♻️ Rest & recovery.
When your keeping in mind all three of above, then you can expect to be getting somewhere near your fitness goals, if you haven't then "Losing weight" often means you find it again.
There is another significant factor that comes into play & its often forgotten..it’s your unique Metabolism, and this can & does change throughout your life.
You may probably be aware of the case of the contestants of "The Biggest Loser" the famous weight loss TV show which got people to lose hundreds of pounds in just a matter of months.
Nearly all contestants gained back the weight they lost and some even weigh more now.
Why did they gain the weight again after so much hard work?..how could this happen?.
Answer: The contestant's Metabolism slowed right down to dangerous levels.
So these quick fix “Getting rid of weight" reality shows are not such a healthy optio
Reality …not really let's look at it this way, you quit your job because it’s 90 days on a ranch away from your family and friends, you workout 3-4 hours every day with a personal trainer, ( caa-ching!!£$) what average person can do that?.
You got to think of the long term, not the short term, the promise of 6 minute Abs or "Wile E. Coyote" Acme® quick-fix products is inevitably going to backfire.
This frightening but amazing development led scientists to look into the underlying cause behind the contestants' aggressive tendency to re-gain weight.
The problem was inevitably related to the contestants' metabolism. After months of extreme dieting and exercise, their metabolic rate slowed down dramatically, and so did the number of calories their bodies burned.
My health tip to you if your overweight, get a six months to a full year Health plan in place, make it a S.M.A.R.T goal. take a good look at your lifestyle, without beating yourself up, what's empowering you that you can use as a springboard?.
Think about getting a Personal trainer for the first three months of that plan, break down that goal into quarterly targets.
Take your body fat measurements every two weeks, in @VirginActive we have a Boditrax scanner, I’ll post my results for this year later this week for you to see.
