  1. Basal metabolic rate (BMR)
    The energy required by the body at complete mental and physical rest to stay functioning
  2. Ingestion of food stimulates metabolism equal to
    10% of the food consumed (ex. 2000 cal meal = energy utilized is 200 cal)
  3. How does exercise influence BMR
    Athletes show 5% increase in BMR
  4. What are the different classes of activity and their relation to the BMR
    • Sedentary - BMR x 20% = cal use from activity/day
    • Very light - BMR x 30%
    • Moderate - BMR x 40%
    • Heavy - BMR x 50%
  5. How does the BMR of women compare to men
    Women, do to their naturally higher fat percentile have a 5-10% lower metabolic rate then men of the same weight and height
  6. How does sleep effect BMR
    It decreases it by 10%
  7. How does pregnancy and lactating effect BMR
    Increases it
  8. How does temperature effect the BMR
    Temperatures greater then 86 degrees Fahrenheit increase BMR 5%
  9. What is the calculation for males and females to determine their BMR
    • Males - 1 cal x Kg(wt) x hr
    • Famales - .9 cal x Kg(wt) x hr
    • (ex. 1cal x 68Kg x 24hrs = 1,656 cal utilized)
  10. What are considered the six nutrients

    • Protein
    • Fats
    • Vitamins

  13. How many calories are there per gram of carbohydrates
    4 calories per gram of carbohydrates
  14. What happens if someone is deficient in carbohydrates intake
    The body turns to breaking down muscles for proteins

    Fats are unable to be used effectively for energy because carbohydrates are necessary for effective fat metabolism, Ketosis results
  15. How many grams of carbohydrates are needed a day to avoid Ketosis and breaking down of proteins in muscle for energy
    100 grams a day (400 cal)

    • Bone demineralization
    • Enhanced decline in kidney function in the elderly
