  1. Values are expressed as correlation coefficients
  2. signifies change in the corresponding quantity
  3. %fat, fat mass/weight × 100
  4. %LBM, lean body mass/weight ×100
  5. BMI body mass index, HOMA-IR homeostasis model assessment-insulin resistance, SFA subcutaneous fat area, VFA visceral fat area, VO2 oxygen consumption
