BACKGROUND Individual energy requirements of overweight and obese adults can often not be measured by indirect calorimetry. OBJECTIVE The objective was to analyze which resting energy expenditure (REE) predictive equation was the best alternative to indirect calorimetry in US and Dutch adults aged 18-65 y with a body mass index (in kg/m(2)) of 25 to 40… (More)
