Abstract

The energy expenditure of lower (group 1) and upper socioeconomic group females (group 2) from a marginal community in Guatemala City was determined by using the doubly labelled water method. Energy expenditure values were 1925 ± 66 (mean, SEM) kcal/d (group 1) and 2253 ± 145 kcal/d group 2 (p<0.03). About half of this difference can be attributed to size.
