While the tools for measuring anthropometry, body composition, and energy expenditure have become more accessible to researchers and clinicians alike, there is a lack of basic data on these parameters in healthy populations, and their relationships with health outcomes. This Special Issue will publish papers detailing anthropometric and energy expenditure data for free-living populations and their role in health outcomes, as well as nutritional studies and trials that examine any measured differences or changes in these parameters.
