n, pl -ries
(Units) a unit of heat, equal to 4.1868 joules (International Table calorie): formerly defined as the quantity of heat required to raise the temperature of 1 gram of water by 1°C under standard conditions. It has now largely been replaced by the joule for scientific purposes. Abbreviation: cal Also called: gram calorie or small calorie Compare Calorie

a. Also called gram calorie, small calorie. an amount of heat exactly equal to 4.1840 joules.Abbr.: cal
b. (usu. cap.) kilocalorie. Abbr.: Cal
2.
a. a unit equal to the kilocalorie, expressing the heat output of an organism and the energy value of food.
b. a quantity of food capable of producing such an amount of energy.
[1800–10; < French < Latin calor heat]

cal·o·rie

(kăl′ə-rē)
1. A unit of heat equal to the amount of heat needed to raise the temperature of one gram of water by one degree Celsius. Also called small calorie.
2.
a. A unit of heat equal to the amount of heat needed to raise the temperature of 1,000 grams of water by one degree Celsius. Also called kilocalorie, large calorie.
b. This unit used as a measure of the amount of heat energy released by food as it is digested by the body.

Calorie

1. A calorie is the amount of heat needed to raise the temperature of a gram of water by 1°C. A Calorie (kilocalorie) is 1000 calories.
2. (cal) A measure of heat energy representing the amount of heat needed to raise the temperature 1 g of water by 1°C. Also called “small calorie”: 1000 cal = 1 kcal or Cal. See joule, kilocalorie.
3. A calorie (c) is the amount of heat needed to raise the temperature of 1 gram of water by 1°C. A Calorie (C) is a kilocalorie, or 1000 calories (c). The energy content of foods is usually given in Calories (kilocalories).

Our findings suggest that activation of each of these two populations of neurons should powerfully suppress appetite or promote energy expenditure," he said.
The contract includes the one hand, supply, installation, testing, commissioning of a system of polymodal measure energy expenditure (by indirect calorimetry) and circadian activity in mice (2 lots) and on the other hand, the training of operators and maintenance during the warranty period.
An international team of scientists working with primates in zoos, sanctuaries, and in the wild examined daily energy expenditure in 17 primate species, from gorillas to mouse lemurs, to test whether primates' slow pace of life results from a slow metabolism.
Researchers measured resting energy expenditure (primary outcome) as well as total energy expenditure, hormone levels, and metabolic syndrome components.
The primary aim of this retrospective investigation was to compare two previous studies that utilized non-steady state methods of energy expenditure estimation: one where a single set of lifting was completed before muscle fatigue took place (10), the other where muscular failure was the end point of the set (11).
The energy cost of each dance class was measured using the BodyMedia SenseWear Sensor and total daily energy expenditure was evaluated using a 3-day recording of physical activity.
As soon as food becomes available and we start eating, the action of the AGRP neurons is interrupted and our energy expenditure goes back up again to normal levels.
The research showed a weak but measurable effect of physical activity on daily energy expenditure.
Schools can request funding for energy projects by submitting an Energy Expenditure Plan application for either one year or multiple years to the Energy Commission.
Experiment 1 was conducted to observe how light and dark can affect the energy expenditure and behavior of the chickens exposed to an alternating light (240 lux) and dark (0 lux) cycle, each photoperiod for every 2 h and lasted for 12 h per day (thus 6 cycles of light and dark period per day).
Binns said that her team looked at the effects of protein consumption alone on total energy expenditure and protein consumption combined with exercise, and found that with exercise, there is a trend for a continued increase in caloric expenditure with higher protein consumption.
