The impact of rate of weight loss on body composition and compensatory mechanisms during weight reduction: A randomized control trial.

Abstract

BACKGROUND & AIMS Rapid weight loss (WL) has been associated with a larger loss of fat free mass and a disproportional reduction in resting metabolic rate (RMR), but the evidence is inconclusive. We aimed to evaluate the impact of WL rate on body composition and compensatory mechanisms activated with WL (reduced RMR, increased exercise efficiency (ExEff… (More)
