The estimated energy requirement is important for adequate nutritional management in athletes. The energy requirement can be estimated from the basal metabolic rate (BMR). However, there is little data regarding the BMR of Japanese athletes. This study measured the BMR and body composition of 81 elite Japanese male athletes in different sports categories:(More)
SUMMARY It is unclear whether the rate of body mass (BM) reduction affects the body composition with an equivalent BM reduction and whether this is influenced by the intensity of BM reduction. To elucidate this, two experiments (Exp.) were conducted. In Exp. 1, the rats fasted for 3 days to decrease BM rapidly (R3); energy was restricted at 85% of their(More)
Whether the speed of body mass (BM) reduction influences the body composition is uncertain. To investigate the effects of rapid vs slow body mass reduction on body composition, rats were divided into three groups; fed ad libitum for 16-day (Control, C); received restricted food intake during 16-day to decrease BM slowly (Slow, S); or fed ad libitum for(More)
SUMMARY We previously observed that digestive tract mass decreased more in rats experiencing rapid body mass (BM) reduction than in those undergoing slow BM reduction. To determine if BM reduction speed influences body composition after refeeding, rats were assigned to three groups. The control group (C) ate ad libitum, the slow group (S) received(More)
