Abstract

Aim: To evaluate the accuracy of predictive equations for basal metabolic rate (BMR). Subjects: 66 women, 31 young women = Y (18-30 yrs; 58.7 ± 7.2 kg), 17 young adults = YA (31-40 yrs; 60.0 ± 5.1 kg) and 18 adults = A (41-50 yrs; 61.4 ± 7.2 kg). Methods: BMR measured by indirect calorimetry or predicted with the equations of Harris-Benedict and Schofield. Results: For the Harris-Benedict equation the predictive-measured differences were significantly different between groups and tended to be higher in comparison to Schofield's. For both equations the agreement range, including 95% of predictive-measured differences, was > 500 kcal/d for Y and about 400 kcal/d for YA and A. The predicted-measured differences for the Harris-Benedict significantly correlated with age, weight and body mass index. Mean predicted-measured differences between the two equations were small (but significant), with agreement range <150 kcal/d, and correlated with age and body mass index. Conclusion: In women aged 18-50 years the Schofield equation seems to be at least as accurate as the Harris-Benedict equation.
