DLW and Energy Intake
Examination of the history of DLW in man suggests that there was an expectation that much would be learned in relation to the development of obesity as an outcome of identified long-term positive energy balance. Certainly in the initial phases of its use in human studies in the late 1980s, experimental protocols were most often designed to measure as accurately as possible the differences between energy intake and energy expenditure, but the findings from these experiments invariably exposed the limitations of energy intake measurements. Probably because the DLW concepts were then somewhat alien to conventional nutrition, the notion that intake measurements were more often than not inaccurate and underestimates was not at first easily accepted, but the most recent of several reviews records a very convincing body of evidence (Figure 6).
