Table 2 Derived equations that were utilized to adjust infant metabolic data for body size and composition

From: Lower energy expenditures in infants from obese biological mothers

Equations R2 SE P
24-h Energy expenditure = [-340.2 + (157.9 × Kg FFM*) + (23.4 × AGE* in months) + (-1.7 × % body fat)] 0.90 62.8 <0.001
Sleeping metabolic rate = [-192.2 + (74.7 × Kg FFM*) + (20.1 × AGE* in months) + (6.1 × % body fat*)] 0.93 34.1 <0.001
  1. * = Coefficient a significant predictor (p < 0.05)
