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
Basal metabolic rate and physical activity in the elderly
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.
