Indirect calorimetry in the assessment of the energy requirement in overweight and obese women.
A new study from the Polish Warsaw University of Life Sciences (WULS – SGGW) assesses the validity of Fitmate PRO in measuring energy expenditure at rest of obese women.
The aim of the analysis was to present the possibilities of using the Fitmate PRO monitor in the assessment of resting metabolic rate and basal energy expenditure with a method of indirect calorimetry in a group of 91 overweight and obese women in various age.
The study concludes that "The Fitmate PRO monitor may be a valuable tool in everyday dietetic practice to assess the basal energy expenditure with method of indirect calorimetry in a group of overweight and obese women".
