Measured versus predicted total energy expenditure in visit 2. Measured TEE from DLW in the 2006 visit versus predicted TEE from the WHO predicted TEE equation and the DRI predicted TEE equation. The WHO predicted TEE was significantly higher than the measured TEE from DLW (p < 0.05). No differences were found between measured TEE and the DRI predicted TEE. Data presented as Mean ± SEE. * Denotes significant difference between measured and predicted TEE at p < 0.05. DLW = Doubly labeled water. DRI = Dietary Reference Intake. TEE = Total energy expenditure. WHO = World Health Organization.
