PURPOSE We established accelerometer count ranges for the Computer Science and Applications, Inc. (CSA) activity monitor corresponding to commonly employed MET categories. METHODS Data were… Expand
Commercially available pedometers: considerations for accurate step counting.
BACKGROUND Many commercially available pedometers undercount, especially at slower speeds. We examined the effects of age, obesity, and self-selected walking speed on pedometer accuracy. We also… Expand
Validity of the Computer Science and Applications, Inc. (CSA) activity monitor.
The validity of the Computer Science and Applications, Inc. (CSA) accelerometer in assessing physical activity was assessed during treadmill walking and running at three different grades. Energy… Expand
The effect of endurance training on resting heart rate variability in sedentary adult males
Abstract. Eleven previously sedentary adult males, serving as the experimental (EXP) group [mean (SE) age 36.6 (1.7) years, body mass 87.2 (4.3) kg, body mass index, BMI, 28.4 (1.5) kg·m–2]… Expand
Effect of calcium from dairy and dietary supplements on faecal fat excretion: a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials.

Observational studies have found that dietary calcium intake is inversely related to body weight and body fat mass. One explanatory mechanism is that dietary calcium increases faecal fat excretion.… Expand

Sleep has been proposed to be a physiological adaptation to conserve energy, but little research has examined this proposed function of sleep in humans. We quantified effects of sleep, sleep… Expand
Physical activity assessment: a review of methods.
In order to determine the actual threshold level of habitual physical activity necessary to obtain protective effects against degenerative diseases, valid, reliable, nonreactive, and precise… Expand

Purpose of reviewTo review factors contributing to variation in total daily energy expenditure and its primary components: (1) resting metabolic rate; (2) diet-induced thermogenesis; and (3) activity… Expand
Overview of the determinants of overweight and obesity: current evidence and research issues.
PURPOSE The prevalence of obesity has reached epidemic proportions in many countries around the world. However, the genetic and environmental factors contributing to obesity are incompletely… Expand
