BACKGROUND When the resting energy expenditure (REE) of overweight and obese adolescents cannot be measured by indirect calorimetry, it has to be predicted with an equation. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to examine the validity of published equations for REE compared with indirect calorimetry in overweight and obese adolescents. DESIGN Predictive equations based on weight, height, sex, age, fat-free mass (FFM), and fat mass were compared with measured REE. REE was measured by indirect… CONTINUE READING
