Interesting report conducted by the Department of Defense
"Some early pioneering work on the physical capabilities of
men during periods of underfeeding were done by Henschel
et aP and Keys et al"* in which they placed men on a semistarvation
diet for 24 weeks. This ealorie restrietion produeed
signifieant reductions in body mass (-24%) and fat tnass
after 24 weeks. They also demonstrated a decline in muscle
strength (-30%) and maximal oxygen consutnption (-23%).
Reminiseent of this early work, studies eondueted by the U.S.
