Diet and Metabolic rate

Balanced diet

  • Carbohydrates
  • Protein
  • Fat
  • Vitamins and minerals

Metabolic rate = time in which reactions take place in your body

How much energy?

  • How much muscle - (high muscle, high metabolism, need more energy)
  • How active - (active, more energy needed, high metabolism)
  • Inherited factors - (Genes, Low metabolical rate less energy cause obesity don't burn as much energy)
  • Cholesterol level - (fatty substance in cells, inherited increase blood cholesterol, risk of heart disease)

Unbalanced diet

  • Too much - overweight, diabetes
  • Too little - underweight, deficiency


  • Exercise increases energy, less body fat, builds up muscle high metabolism, no obesity
