  title={Predicting the resting metabolic rate of 30–60-year-old Australian males},
  author={G E van der Ploeg and R S Withers},
  journal={European Journal of Clinical Nutrition},
Objectives: This study: (a) generated regression equations for predicting the resting metabolic rate (RMR) of 30–60-y-old Australian males from age, height, mass and fat-free mass (FFM); and (b) cross-validated RMR prediction equations which are currently used in Australia against our measured and predicted values.Design: A power analysis demonstrated that 41 subjects would enable the detection of (α=0.05, power=0.80) statistically and physiologically significant differences of 8% between… CONTINUE READING
