What is Metabolism?
Metabolism is all of the chemical reactions and physiological processes that keep us alive. All of these processes require energy which is produced by burning, or oxidising, fuels that we eat, which are carbohydrates, fat and protein. Like when burning any fuel, oxygen is consumed and carbon dioxide is produced. By measuring the amount of oxygen breathed in and carbon dioxide expired (gas exchange) we can calculate the amount of energy your body is using, and also the type of fuel that is running it.
Resting Metabolic Rate
We look at your metabolism in two different states: resting and exercising. Your resting metabolic rate (RMR) represents 60-75% of your total daily energy expenditure. When measuring metabolic rate in a fasted state, e.g. before breakfast, your body will either be burning fat or carbohydrate, in the form of glucose. Ideally, the majority of your energy at rest would be produced by burning fat, reserving your carbohydrate stores for when your energy demands are higher. Unfortunately, factors such as diet, lifestyle and genetics can impact your ability to burn fat and make it difficult to maintain a healthy weight.
