What is the Effect of Low Energy Availability (EA) Achieved by Diet or Exercise on Bone Turnover Markers in Active, Eumenorrheic Women?

Research Paper Title Bone metabolic responses to low energy availability achieved by diet or exercise in active eumenorrheic women. Background The researchers aimed to explore the effects of low energy availability (EA)[15 kcal·kg lean body mass (LBM)-1·d-1] achieved by diet or exercise on bone turnover markers in active, eumenorrheic women. Methods By using a crossover design,… Read More

‘Socially Desirable Strangulation’: The Effect of Neckties!

Research Paper Title Should you stop wearing neckties? – wearing a tight necktie reduces cerebral blood flow. Background Negative cerebrovascular effects can be expected by compressing jugular veins and carotids by a necktie. It has already been demonstrated that a necktie increases intraocular pressure. In many professions, a special dress code including a necktie and… Read More

Is Greater Total Negative Energy Balance Associated with Declines in Lower-body Performance during Military Operations?

Research Paper Title Threshold of Energy Deficit and Lower-Body Performance Declines in Military Personnel: A Meta-Regression. Background Negative energy balance (EB) is common during military operations, diminishing body mass and physical performance. However, the magnitude of negative EB where performance would still be maintained is not well defined. The objective of the research was to… Read More

Weight Management Studies: Comparing DLW with TEE

Research Paper Title Establishing energy requirements for body weight maintenance: validation of an intake-balance method. Background Experimentally establishing a group’s body weight maintenance energy requirement is an important component of metabolism research. At present, the reference approach for measuring the metabolizable energy intake (MEI) from foods required for body weight maintenance in non-confined subjects is… Read More

Calories for Work…

“Approximately 3,200 kcal could meet the daily energy requirements for physical exercise for a 70 kg person whereas 2,600 calories was sufficient for simple office work. The metabolism of a farm worker during harvesting would require 4,300 kcal. The peak values of the daily calorie consumption for lumberjacks would amount to approximately 6,000 kcal for a 70 kg person. Long-distance racing cyclists,… Read More

What Happens to Energy Balance & Body Composition during US Army SF Training?

Research Paper Title Energy Balance and Body Composition during US Army Special Forces Training. Background Small Unit Tactics (SUT) is a 64-day phase of the Special Forces Qualification Course designed to simulate real-world combat operations. Assessing the metabolic and physiological responses of such intense training allows greater insights into nutritional requirements of soldiers during combat.… Read More
