I just had my RMR measured and the result basically came back as being around 5 times the value of my current consumption in food (or 3 times the value if I include an overestimate of my daily calorie intake with alcohol included).
I don't understand this. If my body is burning x calories per day but I am only eating 1/5x or 1/3x then are the results wrong? (Incidentally, I wasn't told to fast on the day of the test which some have suggested I should have been, so I ate a 40 kcal breakfast that day) If not, where is it getting these other calories? My weight has been stable over the last 6 years so it's not coming from excess fat.
