Energy balance is defined as the state achieved when the energy intake equals energy expenditure. Although an imbalance in energy consumption and expenditure are required to promote inappropriate weight gain, the relative contributions of each to obesity remain in dispute. Obesity is often considered to be a result of either excessive food intake or insufficient physical activity, although there is a great debate about which behavior deserves the most responsibility. However, it is more believed at present that weight gain/obesity can best be viewed in terms of energy balance. Efforts to develop effective strategies to reduce obesity rates can benefit from an understanding of how energy balance is achieved by the body.
This issue will include reviews, new methodologies, and surveys focused on energy balance and its components and, within this scope, new scientific-based evidence describing the interplay among energy intake, energy expenditure, and body energy stores, and how an understanding of energy balance can further the development of strategies at either individual or population levels.Prof. Dr. Gregorio Varela Moreiras
