The article discusses the practice of using body weight as a denominator in determining energy balance to overestimate the role of energy expenditure in both lean and obese patients with diabetes. It references related studies on neuroendocrine factors that regulate fod intake. It addresses the problem in the interpretation of energy expenditure data. It presents some recommendations when calculating energy expenditure from oxygen consumption.

    Globally, bodyweight and obesity are rising in both the developing and developed world. To maintain a stable bodyweight, energy intake must, over time, exactly equal energy expenditure, a state known as energy balance. An understanding of the physiologic control of energy balance may be useful...
