Table 1 Estimated energy requirement equations

From: Genomic determinants of long-term cardiometabolic complications in childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia survivors

Group Equation EER (kcal/d)
Boys 3-8 y 88.5 - (61.9 × age [y]) + PA × {(26.7 × weight [kg] + 903 × height [m])} + 20
Boys 9-18 y 88.5 - (61.9 × age [y]) + PA × {(26.7 × weight [kg] + 903 × height [m])} + 25
Men ≥19 y 662 - (9.53 × age [y]) + PA × {(15.91 × weight [kg]) + (539.6 × height [m])}
Girls 3-8 y 135.3 - (30.8 × age [y]) + PA × {(10.0 × weight [kg]) + (934 × height [m])} + 20
Girls 9-18 y 135.3 - (30.8 × age [y]) + PA × {(10.0 × weight [kg]) + (934 × height [m])} + 25
Women ≥19 y 354 - (6.91 × age [y]) + PA × {(9.36 × weight [kg]) + (726 × height [m])}
