  • *: calculated by subtracting the first measurement from a second taken 7 weeks later

  • #: of mean difference

  • Significance was tested using paired t‐tests

  • ICC: intraclass correlation coefficient

  • DEXA: dual energy X‐ray absorptiometry

  • BIA: bioelectric impedance analysis

  • SFA: skinfield anthropometry
