The REE is measured with an Indirect calorimetry. Indirect calorimetry is a noninvasive, reliable, and valuable tool in assessing energy expenditure and fuel utilization by the body. Scientists from multiple disciplines have used it to measure energy expenditure, establish nutrient requirements, measure physical fitness, and evaluate macronutrient utilization during exercise and rest.
