Weight loss and changes in body composition are recognized phenomena associated with high-altitude mountaineering expeditions. Attempts to partition the weight loss between fat mass (FM) and fat-free mass (FFM) have been inconclusive. Therefore, five male subjects, average age 40.0 +/- 5.5 years, were studied prior to, during, and following a 21-day expedition between 2200 m and 4300 m on Mt. McKinley, Alaska. Pre- to postexpedition body composition changes were determined by densitometry… CONTINUE READING
