No consistent evidence of a disproportionately low resting energy expenditure in long-term successful weight-loss maintainers

Conclusions

We found no consistent evidence of a significantly lower REE than predicted in a sample of long-term WLMs based on predictive equations developed from NCs and OCs as well as 3 standard predictive equations. Results suggest that sustained weight loss may not always result in a substantial, disproportionately low REE.

I feel so much better now.
