What is external energy?
- In the environment, the ultimate source
- of energy is the sun and its vest nuclear reactions.
What is internal energy?
- When people eat plant and animals
- foods, the stored energy changes into body fuels-glucose and fatty
- acids- and cycles them into various other energy form to serve body
Basal Metabolic Rate
What is Basal Metabolic Rate(BMR) also
RMR Resting Metabolic Rate
What does Basal Metabolic Rate
Sum of all internal working activitiesof the body at rest and is expressed in kilocalories per day about60-75% of total kcal. (RMR)
What does energy out mean?
The necessary activities to sustainlife, such as normal body functions, regulation of body temperature,and the processes of tissue growth and repair, use energy from foodand body reserves.
What does energy in mean?
The total energy balance within thebody depends on he energy intake in relation to the energy output.
How does energy get balanced?
It is determined on resting energyexpenditure, physical activity and the thermic effect of food is allsummed up together.
What is the thermic effect of food?
After eating, food stimulatesmetabolism and requires extra energy for digestion, absorption, andtransportation of nutrients to the cells. About 10% of kcal
What is Physical Activity?
Exercise about 15-30% of kcal.
What are the three sources of stored
Glycogen, Adipose Tissue, and MuscleMass
When is Glycogen used up?
First to get depleted in energy. Itsstored in the liver and muscles.
When is adipose tissue used as energy?
Its an additional energy resource itprovides more kcal than any other energy.
When is muscle mass used as energy?
Long periods of fasting or starvation.
What is a calorie?
A measure of heat. Kcal
What is kilocalorie?
1000 calories The calorie used innutrition science and the study of metabolism.
What is basal energy expenditure? And
The amount of energy in kcal needed bythe body for maintenance of life when a person is at total rest.(10-12hrs after eating, 12-18hrs afterphysical activities, and measured immediately after walking.
A test to “indicate”(test) BMR?
Thyroid Function test.
What hormone regulates metabolism?
A small food that has a highconcentrated material.
