Table 7 Limits of agreement between REEm and REEe

From: Comparison of five equations for estimating resting energy expenditure in Chinese young, normal weight healthy adults

The equations for REEe Mean difference REEe-REEm (kcal/day) Limits of agreement (mean difference ±1.96SD) (kcal/day) Standard error for the limits of agreement (95% confidence interval for the bias) (kcal/day)

  1. aEnd of the predictive equations’ name plus ‘-s’ means that REE was calculated by ideal body weight, otherwise by current body weight. H-B, Harris-Benedict; REEe, estimated resting energy expenditure; REEm, measured resting energy expenditure; WHO, World Health Organization.
