Methods: An analysis of physical activity energy expenditure...

    Background:The doubly labelled water (DLW) method is the technique of choice for measurement of free-living total energy expenditure (TEE) in humans. A major constraint on the clinical applicability of the method has been the expense of the 18O isotope.Method:We have used a reduced-dose...

    Weight changes in response to a change in energy intake are smaller than calculated from the excess or deficit of energy intake. Digestion efficiency is not affected by intake level when consuming the same diet. Over- or underfeeding induces an increase or decrease in energy expenditure....

    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...

    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...

    Background: Overweight develops gradually as a result of a long term surplus on the balance between energy intake and energy expenditure. Aim of this study was to quantify the positive energy balance responsible for excess body weight gain (energy gap) in young overweight children. Methods:...
