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.
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.
Curiously enough, a higher body fat was observed when energy balance was adequate, which is probably related with the dramatic drop in TDEE at TT.
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.

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.
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.
Recently Lanningham-Foster and colleagues (2005) validated the PAMS for use in children, which promises future evidence of the primary predictors of NEAT in children, as well as an understanding of the role NEAT may play in the variation in TDEE in youngsters.
