The present study determined the intra-individual variation of BMR measurements, using a standard out-patient protocol, with the subjects transporting themselves to the laboratory for the BMR measurements after spending the night at home. The effect of a non-fasting state and variation in daily habitual physical activity the day before testing was(More)
Human eating behavior may be influenced non-homeostatically by the rewarding value of foods, i.e. 'liking' (pleasure/palatability) and 'wanting' (incentive motivation). The objectives of this study were to validate a computer test for assessment of rewarding value of food, and to assess how rewarding value of food is affected by eating a dessert-specific(More)
The shape of the cumulative food intake curve of normal weight and obese women was studied during solid food lunches, artificially prolonged meals, and energetically enriched meals eaten in a laboratory setting. Subjects (86 normal weight, 50 obese) displayed consistent eating behaviour over 3-6 repeated meals, with marked differences between individuals.(More)
The largest component of daily energy expenditure is resting energy expenditure as reflected in overnight metabolic rate (OMR) and sleeping metabolic rate (SMR). Here, we determined the variation in OMR (24:00-6:00 h) and SMR values (3 h intervals) as affected by physical activity (PA) during the day and the night. Subjects were 32 females and 17 males, age(More)
BACKGROUND Sleep has been associated with the regulation of energy balance, yet the relation between sleep stages and energy expenditure remains unclear. OBJECTIVE The objective was to investigate the relation between sleep stages and energy expenditure, with sleep stage and overnight energy expenditure patterns taken into account.
