Basal metabolic rate (BMR) has been reported to decrease during semistarvation and during hypocaloric treatment of obesity. However, it remains controversial whether the decrease is due to change in body composition, or if it represents a downregulation in cellular metabolism. To examine this relationship, we reviewed studies of BMR in children, adolescents, adults, semistarved non-obese, anorexics, and weight-reducing obese. The relationship between BMR and fat-free mass (FFM) of children… CONTINUE READING
