Impact of Protein Supplementation to Mother Milk on Resting Energy Expenditure (REE) in Growing Healthy Preterm Infants.

Resting Energy Expenditure is the amount of energy, usually expressed in Kcal required for a 24 hour period by the body during resting conditions. It is closely related to, but not identical to, basal metabolic rate. According to the ESPGHAN committee guidelines on enteral nutrient supply for preterm infants, which were published in 2010, the daily protein intake of extremely low birth weight infants shall be 4.5 g/kg/day, and for those above 1000g, 4 g/kg/day. In order to mee...

Physiological and Perceptual Effects of Music on Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR)

The objective of the study is to determine whether music has any effect on resting metabolic rate (RMR), which is the amount of energy expended at rest. There is currently conflicting research on how music affects RMR. One problem with RMR testing is that participants often fall asleep during the test. There can be a 5-10% difference in the metabolic rate between rest and sleep. If no change in RMR is observed, playing music during an RMR test could be a potential strategy to p...

Metabolic Effects of Differential Organ Growth Rates

Young children have a high resting energy expenditure (REE) relative to their body weight and metabolically active compartment, fat-free mass (FFM). Both body weight and FFM are, however, metabolically heterogeneous and include organs and tissues varying widely in specific metabolic rate (i.e., organ REE/kg/d). One prevailing hypothesis is that most, if not all, of the higher REE observed in young animals and children compared to adults can be accounted for by a larger proporti...

Effects of Caffeine and Coffee on Resting Metabolic Rate, Comparing Normal Weight Men to Obese Men

Background. The prevalence of obesity has increased in the last two decades. To maintain body weight energy expenditure (EE) should be equal to energy intake (EI). A low EE predisposes individuals to weight gain and to obesity that can also results from low resting metabolic rate (RMR). Caffeine (Caf) is an active food ingredient and is widely consumed globally, and has an important impact on energy balance. Caf reduces appetite (EI) and increases EE, thus, Caf has a potential ...
