The constancy of basal metabolic rate in free-living male subjects.

The object of this work was to investigate the constancy of basal metabolic rate (BMR) over time. The BMR was measured in a group of healthy free-living adult men on three separate occasions over some 2 years. Analysis of variance showed that the coefficient of variation within subjects was 4 per cent and between subjects 8 per cent. The results are… (More)
