The total daily energy expenditure (TEE) was estimated from continuous heart rate (HR) measurements.
Further, it appears that at least in Tunisian society moderate physical activity makes a greater contribution to the prevention of obesity than does intense activity, presumably because it occupies a larger fraction of the child's day, and thus contributes more to the total daily energy expenditure.
(2006) A simple method of measuring total daily energy expenditure and physical activity level from the heart rate in adult men.
However, in view of the fact that BMR makes a variable contribution to total daily energy expenditure, from 45% down to [approximately]27% (Kleiber 1961, Nagy 1987), and that, at least for one mammal, the marmot (Marmota flaviventris), a relatively low BMR does not translate into a reduced FMR (Salsbury and Armitage 1994), the coupling between BMR and metabolism in the field remains unclean As a result, the evolutionary and ecological significance of a diminution in BMR is still an unresolved problem, despite attempts to place variation in basal metabolism into an ecological framework (McNab 1980, 1984, 1986, Bennett 1988).
Evaluation of metabolism under laboratory conditions in combination with estimates of FMR as given [TABULAR DATA FOR TABLE 3 OMITTED] by DLW provide a useful tool for dissecting total daily energy expenditure into components (McNab 1989).
SAN DIEGO--Adults with high total daily energy expenditure
are not protected from holiday weight gain, results from a large study demonstrated.
Appreciating the role NEAT may play in the variation of total daily energy expenditure in children is a future challenge for physical activity research.
Total daily energy expenditure, activity thermogenesis and the prevention of excessive weight gain
Total daily energy expenditure was assessed using doubly-labelled water in 2 to 7 year olds, and activity thermongenesis and physical activity level calculated.
