  1. Values are expressed as mean ± SD. The experimental meal was ad libitum on the first session, but consumed in the same amount than in the first session on the second session. CHO, carbohydrate. % of TDEE, percentage of total daily energy expenditure calculated using the Harris & Benedict equation for resting metabolic rate (RMR) corrected for moderate activities (RMR × 1.4).
