Where did Cronometer get the coefficients for calculating the Thermic Effect of Food (TEF) calories?
I am very much interested in the Thermic Effect of Food (TEF) feature, because up till now, I have been myself adding a custom "exercise" to add a burn of 0.1912 kcal per gram of consumed fat, and 0.8126 kcal per gram of consumed protein (none for carbohydrate), which are the values from Geoffrey Livesey, Review article: A perspective on food energy standards for nutrition labelling, British Journal of Nutrition (2001), 85, page 274, which I post the relevant screenshot from below:
Note the values in the above table are in kJ, so I divided them by 4.184 to obtain values in kcal (food calories). The coefficient is the difference between NME and ME in the above table.
So for fat:
(37.4 − 36.6) / 4.184 ≈ 0.1912 kcal/g
And for protein:
(16.7 − 13.3) / 4.184 ≈ 0.8126 kcal/g
With Cronometer TEF if I add a 1000 grams of pure fat to an empty diary day, it only adds 15.7 kcal TEF, while from Livesey it should be 191.2 kcal, why is the value Cronometer adds 12.2 times lower then I was using?
If I add 1000 grams of pure protein, Cronometer adds 253.8 kcal TEF, and from Livesey's data it should be 812.6 kcal, so Cronometer seems to add 3.2 times less.
Where did Cronometer get the coefficients used, which seem 12.2 x lower (for fat) and 3.2 x lower (for protein) then the coefficients quoted by Livesey?
