ABSTRACT
The article presents a study that examines the validity of published equations for resting energy expenditure (REE) compared with indirect calorimetry in overweight and obese adolescents. The study compared the predictive equations based on weight, height, sex, age, fat-free mass (FFM), and fat mass with measured REE. It suggests that alorimetry remains the method of choice for REE in overweight and obese adolescents.
