caloric expenditure

caloric expenditure

, calorie expenditure
The number of kilocalories used during an activity or during a specific length of time. It increases with the difficulty of the activity (how many muscles are used and how hard they work) and with the duration of the activity.

Caloric expenditure is largely determined by your metabolism (Basal Metabolic Rate), which you have little control over.
We are also able to develop enjoyable and challenging programming that maximizes caloric expenditure and promotes the EPOC (extended period of post-exercise oxygen consumption) effect based upon this data to boost their basal/resting metabolic rate.
Failure to thrive is common in neonates and occurs most often due to inadequate caloric intake; however, it also can be caused by systemic disease associated with inadequate gastrointestinal absorption or increased caloric expenditure, such as congenital heart disease, renal disease (eg, renal tubular acidosis), chronic pulmonary disease (eg, cystic fibrosis), laryngomalacia, malignancy, immunodeficiency, or thyroid disease.
(14) work on the assumption that, from a conceptual viewpoint, frailty is a state of age-related multisystemic physiological vulnerability associated with an increased risk of adverse health outcomes, and propose that it be diagnosed by the presence of three or more of a total of five items: feeling of exhaustion, low handgrip strength, slowing gait speed, weight loss and low caloric expenditure. The presence of one or two items would point to a borderline, intermediate status between the robust and frail individual, named by these authors as pre-frailty.
It is known that physical exercise increases caloric expenditure generated by mechanical work and contributes to the reduction of body fat (Bombarda et al., 2009; Calvez et al., 2011).
Caloric expenditure and average RER was calculated from the respiratory gas data.
In the weight loss program trial, despite the dieters consistent efforts to reduce calorie intake, their increased appetite resulted in a progressive increase in calorie intake three times stronger than the changes in caloric expenditure that typically accompany weight loss and weight loss plateau.
For instance, the quantification of total [??][O.sub.2] does not provide a valid representation of anaerobic EE component (i.e., heavy and severe exercises) and may lead to an underestimation of the caloric expenditure and therefore, of the exercise volume (26).
But the MET value of standing versus sitting does not rise to a difference in caloric expenditure that would seem to lead to weight loss, if that is your goal.
Binns said that her team looked at the effects of protein consumption alone on total energy expenditure and protein consumption combined with exercise, and found that with exercise, there is a trend for a continued increase in caloric expenditure with higher protein consumption.
The purpose of this study was to use the Report Card as a guide to quantify and compare: 1) the number of calories an average Canadian school-aged child (6-11 years of age) expends to meet the Report Card benchmarks for active play and the organized forms of PA, and 2) the expected increase in caloric expenditure when averaged across the entire school-aged population should the proportion meeting the benchmarks increase.
It ensures the upper and lower limbs act in coordination for maximum caloric expenditure.
