Your resting metabolism is unique. This means that your resting metabolism might not fall within the range indicated as “Normal”. “Normal” range comes from a population average, but each individual is different.
However, an abnormally high resting metabolism may be a sign to consult a health professional.
If you have followed the recommendations as described, take additional measurements to determine the range of values for your resting metabolism and to discover how dynamic your resting metabolism is. In this way, you can collect more information for yourself and/or your health professional.

  • Check for conditions that might produce rapid breathing. For instance, any strenuous or moderate physical activity right before the resting metabolism measurement will affect your results. Similar to how you’d assess your blood pressure, you need to stabilize your breathing and heart rate in a resting state first. Eating before the measurement can also lead to high values. Like a blood glucose measurement, it’s recommended that you wait to measure your resting metabolism at least 4 hours after a moderate meal, and ideally after fasting overnight.
  • Unlike blowing up a balloon (strained, forceful breaths), try to breathe normally.
  • To establish a normal breathing pattern, practice breathing into the tracker’s mouthpiece/T-joint assembly (without the Breezing Tracker. Try not to regulate or control your breathing—breathe in and out as naturally as you can.
  • Practice breathing into the mouthpiece/T-joint assembly wearing the nose clip, but without the Tracker, to get accustomed to breathing in these conditions.
  • Keep practicing until you are comfortable with breathing
  • Once you feel ready, take another measurement
