Table 2 BMR values in yoga and non-yoga groups with their Mean predicted values

From: The effect of long term combined yoga practice on the basal metabolic rate of healthy adults

  Yoga n = 55 Non Yoga n = 49
BMR (Kcal/d) 1197.6 ± 238.3 **,+ 1420.2 ± 251.2
BMR 20.6 ± 3.6 ** 23.6 ± 4.6
Predicted BMR (Kcal/d) 1388.2 ± 169.9 1423.1 ± 151.5
  1. Mean ± 1 SD
  2. ** P < 0.001, yoga group compared with non yoga group
  3. + P < 0.001 BMR of subjects in each group compared with their predicted values
  4. Adjusted for body weight
