It’s All About Physiology
Resting Metabolic Rate
Metabolic rate is a measure of how much food, or fat, is converted to energy in a day. Resting metabolic rate (RMR) is the measurement of how much food, or energy, is required to maintain basic body functions such as heartbeat, breathing, and maintenance of body heat while you are in a state of rest. That energy is expressed in calories per day. So an RMR test shows how many calories you burn at rest, doing nothing more than sitting in a chair
A VO2 Max Test is a measurement that reflects a person’s ability to perform sustained exercise. It is generally considered the best indicator of cardiovascular fitness and aerobic endurance. The actual measurement is “milliliters of oxygen used in one minute per kilogram of body weight.” It is suitable for a wide range of individuals, from the sedentary to elite athletes.
“I started working with Dr. Lassiter and saw results quickly. I am almost 50, I am happy, energetic, I don’t pay much attention to my diet, I retain muscle and I enjoy hard work. I can now squat 500 lbs. and I can pick up 600 lbs. off the floor. Lonnie is an unbelievably great coach; he changed my life!!”Bruce S.
“I have tried many different programs before, but Dr. Lassiter’s program has helped me lose weight and keep it off. I now know how to be healthy and keep the weight off. I never have to buy another program and I love my new way of eating and living”Cheryl B.
