- The doubly-labelled water method for measuring energy expenditure. Technical recommendations for use in humans. A consensus report by the International Dietary Energy Consultancy Group (IAEA-NAHRES-4, Vienna 1990): The content of this report is still relevant and valid, although it was prepared in 1990. Only the details of the IRMS instrumentation in chapter 3 are out of date, but the principles remain the same.
