Short- and long-term reductions in physical activity attenuate the rate of weight loss during dietary energy restriction in women with overweight and obesity

Casanova Nuno , Beaulieu Kristine , Oustric Pauline , Gibbons Catherine , Finlayson Graham , Hopkins Mark

Background: Changes in body composition following energy restriction are highly variable between individuals, but whether adaptations in biological (resting metabolic rate; RMR) or behavioural (physical activity; PA) components of total energy expenditure (TEE) underlie this variability remains unclear. This study examined if changes in TEE and its components were associated with the rate of weight loss (WL) in women during energy restriction.Methods: 46...

Exploring the effect of weight loss on food reward at the individual level

Oustric Pauline , Beaulieu Kristine , Casanova Nuno , Husson Francois , Gibbons Catherine , Hopkins Marc , Blundell John , Finlayson Graham

Background: Contrary to the idea that compensatory increases in food reward occur after weight loss (WL), a systematic review has shown that liking (L) and implicit wanting (W) decrease after WL interventions. However, there is a large individual variability in WL-induced changes in food reward, with potential implications for weight regain. The aim of this multivariate analysis was to summarize the changes in L&W during WL at the individual level.Me...

The association between resting metabolic rate and free-living daily energy intake is moderated by body fat percentage and is stronger in lean women than women with overweight and obesity

Casanova Nuno , Beaulieu Kristine , Oustric Pauline , O'Connor Dominic , Gibbons Catherine , Finlayson Graham , Blundell John , Hopkins Mark

Background: Previous research suggests that resting metabolic rate (RMR) is a determinant of self-selected meal size and 24-hour energy intake (EI) under laboratory and free-living conditions. However, whether the accumulation of adipose tissue weakens the coupling between RMR and EI has yet to be examined. The aim of this study was to examine if body fat percentage moderated the association between RMR and 24-hour EI in women across a range of body mass index (BMI).<p cla...
