Expert Solution
Summary Introduction

To determine: The energy requirement based on an individual’s current age, weight, and activity level.

Concept introduction:

The estimate energy requirement (EER) is the nutritional energy intake that is required to keep energy balance in healthy individuals of particular age, weight, gender, and physical activity.

### Explanation of Solution

Assume an individual is an active 30 year old male, who is 5.5 inches (1.65m) tall and weighs 90 kg.

The equation of EER for men is given below:

EER = [662-(9.53×age)] + PA × [(15.91×wt) + (539.6×ht)]                              .…. (1)

Here

wt = Weight of the person.

ht = Height of the person.

PA = Physical activity.

Refer Table 8-1, “physical activity (PA) factors for EER equation” given in the textbook. The PA value for an active man is 1.25.

By substituting the value of wt, ht, and PA in Equation (1), the estimated energy requirement can be calculated as follows:

EER=[662-(9
