  • 2-150 Differences between predicted (WHO formula28) and measured REE significant (paired t test, p < 0.05). Other differences between measured and predicted values were not significant.

  • EAR, estimated average requirement; REE, resting energy expenditure; TDEE, total daily energy expenditure.
