Energy metabolism is the most integral body function, and, as any functional activity, it has an effect on energy expenditure. Body energy expenditures are composed of three unequal parts: basal metabolism, energy supply of functional activity and energy expenditure on growth, development and the adaptive processes. The proportion of these expenditures is determined by the stage of individual development and specific life conditions. Basal metabolism (the minimum level of energy production in… CONTINUE READING
