Notes: In 20 young adult women, aged 29 +- 2.8 years, resting
metabolic rate (RMR) and the energy cost of some household activities were
measured. The best fit was found in the correlation between RMR and body weight
(W): RMR (kJ/min) = 2.80 + 0.023 W. r = 0.75. The net energy cost of a
standardized activity (treadmill, 3.9 km/in) could best be predicted by body
weight: E(kJ/min) = 3.04 + 0.12 W. r = 0.75. The energy cost of moderate
household activities was less than could be expected from the literature, but
the energy cost of strenuous activities was higher than values mentioned in the
literature. However, this made little difference to total daily energy
expenditure/day as seen in a comparable group of
