Purpose of Review Validated thermodynamic energy balance models that predict weight change are ever more in use today. Delivery of model predictions using web-based applets and/or smart phones has transformed these models into viable clinical tools. Here, we provide the general framework for thermodynamic energy balance model derivation and highlight differences between thermodynamic energy balance models using four representatives.

Abstract We read the recent article in Psychology of Sport and Exercise by Liu et al. (“A randomized controlled trial of coordination exercise on cognitive function in obese adolescents”) with great interest. Our interest in the article stemmed from the extraordinary differences in obesity-related outcomes reported in response to a rope-jumping intervention. We requested the raw data from the authors to confirm the results and, after the journal editors reinforced our request, the authors gracio...

Abstract Skeletal muscle is recognized as a tissue with high metabolic capacity given its key roles in glucose and lipid metabolism. Although low muscle mass has been associated with metabolic disorders in adults, it is not clear if this body composition phenotype is related to metabolic health status earlier in life. In this review, we aim to clarify whether having low muscle mass is associated with increased risk of metabolic dysregulation in the pediatric population. Fifteen original articles...
Summary Skeletal muscle plays major roles in metabolism and overall health across the lifecycle. Emerging evidence indicates that prenatal (maternal diet during pregnancy and genetic defects) and postnatal factors (physical activity, hormones, dietary protein, and obesity) influence muscle mass acquisition and strength early in life. As a consequence, low muscle mass and strength contributes to several adverse health outcomes during childhood. Specifically, studies demonstrated inverse associati...
