Background:Differences in energy metabolism and physical activity (PA) may contribute to the long-term regulation of body weight (BW).Objective:To examine the associations between metabolic determinants, energy expenditure and objectively measured components of PA with change in BW and fat mass (FM).Design:Prospective (4 years.), case–control study in obese (n=13) and normal weight (n=15) young adults.Measurements:At baseline, we measured resting metabolic rate, substrate oxidation, movement… CONTINUE READING
