  1. REE resting energy expenditure estimated by Harris–Benedict (HB; [18]), Livingston–Kohlstadt (LK; [20]), and Mifflin–St. Jeor (MS; [21]) equations; MEI metabolizable energy intake; NA not applicable; TEE total energy expenditure by doubly-labeled water (DLW) and National Academy of Science (NAS) prediction equations (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Institute_of_Medicine_Equation)
  2. aIn brackets, ratio of MEI to measured or predicted energy expenditure. All energy term units are in kcal/day
  3. bR2 value for MEI versus measured or predicted energy expenditure. All, p < 001
