Predictive equations proposed in this study using age, gender, BMI, height, and body weight variables.

Equations Standard
Deviation

Age (years)REE = 2250 − (7.9 × A)0.020.16
Gender (1 = ♂ and 0 = ♀)REE = 1675.2 + (453.2 × G)0.30<0.01353.2
BMIREE = 809.7 + (33.8 × BMI)0.18<0.01381.7
Height (cm)REE = −2192.1 + (24.8 × H)0.45<0.01311.4
Weight (kg)REE = 368.9 + (17.4 × W)0.60<0.01267.3
Weight + GenderREE = 475.3 + (14.9 × W) + (235.8 × G)0.67<0.01245.3
Weight + Gender + HeightREE = −245.3 + (13.6 × W) + (165.8 × G) + (5.3 × H)0.67<0.01244.6
Weight + Gender + Height + AgeREE = −795.9 + (14.5 × W) + (127.3 × G) + (6.5 × H) + (6.1 × A)0.68<0.01241.7

W = weight (kg), H = height (cm), A = age (years), G = gender in which 1 = male and 0 = female, BMI = Body Mass Index.
