My resting metabolism looks low. What’s going on ?
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, a low 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.
On the other hand, if you feel strong resistance while breathing into the tracker’s mouthpiece/T-joint assembly, this may cause you to breathe slower than usual, affecting your measurement. Make sure the green valves in the tracker’s mouthpiece/T-joint assembly are opening and closing smoothly when you breathe in and out. If the valves seem to be malfunctioning, we recommend you disassemble the mouthpiece/T-joint assembly, clean the components, and re-assemble. Make sure the mouthpiece and T-joint are correctly assembled before attaching it to the Breezing Tracker.
To establish a normal breathing pattern, try breathing using “pushes” of air. Try not to regulate or control your breathing—breathe in and out as naturally as you can.
