Objectives: The aims of this study were: (a) to generate regression equations for predicting the resting metabolic rate (RMR) of 18 to 30-y-old Australian males from age, height, mass and fat-free mass (FFM); and (b) cross-validate RMR prediction equations, which are frequently used in Australia, against our measured and predicted values.Design: A power analysis demonstrated that 38 subjects would enable us to detect (α=0.05, power=0.80) statistically and physiologically significant differences… CONTINUE READING
