Total energy expenditure (TEE) and basal metabolic rate (BMR) in the free-living state were measured in healthy south Indians, by the doubly labelled water (DLW) method. From these measurements, estimates of physical activity level (PAL) could be calculated. A total of 18 subjects were studied in 3 groups of 6 subjects each: Group I (urban controls), Group II (urban slum, chronically undernourished) and Group III (rural). The urban slum recruits were chronically energy deficient (CED), and had… CONTINUE READING
