Where can I get my RMR tested, and can I do this while I'm pregnant?

Or should I wait post partum. Thanks.

health-e-tech makes a device that tests it. I checked their site (healthetech.com) and found the link below. You should be able to type in your zip code and find a testing location.

It is just a machine you breathe into for five-10 minutes. I don't think this will be a problem for the pregnancy, but your RMR will probably be different after you have the baby, so you may need to get another test. Maybe look around on health-e-tech's website to see if they have any info.

the price varies.... you have to go to the website and call the testing centers near you. Make sure you ask what you get for the price - if they include any explanation of the test results, a diet plan to follow, etc.

Bod Pod

I got my RMR tested in a Bod Pod at Gold's Gym. You do not need to be a member there to make an appointment with the nutritionsit for the Bod Pod appointment. The Bod Pod analyzed my body fat and lean mass %'s, and gave me my RMR, plus caloric needs for various activity levels, sedentary through very active. I also received a consultation from the nutritionist on how to eat better. I paid $120.

I'm having my RMR tested on Friday, and the cost is $75 (I'm in Manhattan, so I reckon it will be less just about everywhere else...sigh). I rest quietly for 15 mins (not sure if I get to talk with the dietitian who conducts the test during that time), the test takes 10 mins, and then she will discuss the results with me for 5 mins -- meaning I'll get my RMR plus occupational and exercise factors. I will not be getting any diet/nutrition advice (an option for extra $).

Since you're pregnant, you should know that you can't exercise or eat or drink anything but water for 4 hours beforehand.

The objective is to help guide you towards a way of eating that will make it easier to lose weight, give you more energy and help you feel better. It is free, easy to follow, and a little unusual and controversial. Most of all it is working. This link will take you to a blog post where you can download a FREE copy of the Cheat System Diet Cookbook! The Cheat System has also been turned into a major book to be published May 6th, 2014. According to Srini Pillay, MD, Harvard Medical School: "It works in a real way with how human psychology works...I love that it relates closely to how the brain likes to function... without crazy effort and with significant short-term gains."
Here is a preview of the cover:
