Basal metabolic rate and physical activity in the elderly

, : Basal metabolic rate and physical activity in the elderly. Nippon Eiyo Shokuryo Gakkaishi = Journal of the Japanese Society of Nutrition and Food Science 46(6): 451-458

The effect of physical activity and aerobic capacity (VO2 max) on basal metabolic rate (BMR) was studied in 10 men and 15 women, 65 to 90 years old in a home for the elderly. Mean and maximal heart rates, energy expenditure and estimated VO2 max were significantly lower in subjects >=80 years old than in subjects 65 to 79 years old. Average BMR for the 2 age groups, respectively, was 15.7+or-1.3 and 19.7+or-2.6 for men and 19.2+or-2.3 and 21.1+or-4.2 kcal/kg for women.

Energy expenditure, and therefore energy requirement, generally decreases with advancing age because of a decrease in basal metabolic rate (BMR) and physical activity. The aim of the present study was to measure total energy expenditure (EE) and a...

Spontaneous physical activity (SPA) represents an important component of daily energy expenditures in animals and humans. Intra-specific variation in SPA may be related to the susceptibility to metabolic disease or obesity. In particular, reduced...
