the increases associated with growth ( Torun, 2005 ). Despite this, it is important to acknowledge that resting metabolic rate is higher in adolescent athletes than adults, and standard predictive equations often underestimate resting metabolic rate compared with measured (up to 300 kcal/day) rate in

-intensity activities, and vigorous-intensity activities. Each type of activity was weighted by its energy requirements as defined in METs (METs are multiples of the resting metabolic rate) to yield a score in MET minutes. Walking has a MET score of 3.3 METs, moderate activity 4.0 METs, and vigorous activity 8.0 METs

These following values were used for the analysis of IPAQ data: walking = 3.3 METs, moderate physical activity = 4.0 METs; vigorous physical activity = 8.0 METs. The Baecke

In addition, and not withstanding differences across body sizes and pubertal age, it is noted that an EA of 30 kcal/kg/FFM roughly equates to the average resting metabolic rate (RMR) ( Loucks et al., 2011 ). Because LEA has proven robust
