Wonder how many calories your body burns?
Have you ever wondered how many calories your body burns (basal metabolic rate or BMR)? Would you like a good approximation of your daily caloric expenditure? Dr. Dan Carey of the Health and Human Performance Department is conducting a study of the reliability of BMR.
If you want to participate, come to the Health and Human Performance lab, Room 211, Physical Education Building, St. Paul campus, on two separate mornings (either 7:30 or 8 a.m.) within a one-week period. The test only requires you to lay on a table in a dark room for 20 minutes. You will have a mouthpiece and noseclip in place. Subjects cannot be taking either prescription or over the counter medications. To register or for more information, call Carey at (651) 962-5972.
