High energetic demands have been demonstrated in professional athletes and our athletes presented TDEE compatible with that of endurance athletes (Noakes, 2006).
Although TDEE was much higher than caloric intake, CHO and protein intakes were within Sports Nutrition recommendations (5-11 [g.kg.sup.-1] and 1.2-1.7 [g.kg.sup.-1], respectively) in contrast to fat intake, which was higher than recommended (0.4-1.1 [g.kg.sup.-1]).
We have examined professional athletes with a very high TDEE and found that they seemed to replicate the lack of compensatory response of appetite to exercise, which may facilitate the development of a negative energy balance (Edwards et al., 1993; Fudge et al., 2006).
The completed dietary intake forms were used to analyze the average daily caloric and macronutrient consumption, not including the additional daily calories ingested from the respective supplements, along with calculating TDEE (Table 1).
Furthermore, our data provide insight into the issue that, in regard to total daily calories, a greater macronutrient intake relative to one's TDEE with protein and/or carbohydrate supplementation does not appear to preferentially increase muscle strength and mass.
strong correlations were reported between TDEE (r = 0.80), sedentary
significantly underestimated TDEE by 13.3%, sedentary daily EE by 6.8%,

Indirect calorimetry was used to measure resting energy expenditure (REE), and energy expenditure related to physical activity was calculated by subtracting REE and a 10% fraction of TDEE (to account for the thermic effect of feeding) from total TDEE.
"There were significant sex-group interactions for TDEE, PAEE, and PAEE/TEE," said Dr.
In comparison to the 1-2% variation in TDEE contributed by EAT, NEAT varies enormously between individuals and has been shown to play an important role in the maintenance of body weight (Levine et al., 2005).
Theoretically, manipulating a child's living environment to enhance NEAT, and create a positive gain in TDEE, could lead to the prevention of excess fat-mass.
