"use of foods"
represents the amount of food that a person's body must catabolize each hour in order to stay alive and awake
breakdown of food compounds
maintaining homeostasis of body temperature
synthesis of cells, the building up of cell tissues
lowers blood sugar
changes glucose to pyruvic acid
organic molecules needed in small quantites for normal metabolism
inorganic elements or salts found naturally with in the earth
transfer of heat energy to the skin and then to the external environment
transfer of heat energy to the air that is continually flowing away from the skin
Flow of heat waves away from the blood
absorption of heat by water (sweat) vaporation
carbohydrates, proteins, fats
What is the three basic food types req'd for proper nutrition?
the process that changes glucose to pyruvic acid
citric acid cycle
once glucose has been changed to pyruvic acid, the next process that changes pyruvic acid to carbon dioxide
A direct source of energy for doing cellular work
the only hormone that lowers blood glucose levels
When cells have inadequate amounts of glucose to catabolize they will catabolize what next?
Glycogen or Carbohydrate loading
What is it called when athletes consume large amounts of carbs 2-3 days before an athletic event to store glycogen in skeleton muscles? (hint.. use both terms)
Organic molecules needed in small amounts for normal metabolism.
what are two minerals necessary for nerve conduction and contraction of muscle fibers?
Rather than being transported to ATP during catabolism, food molecules are converted to what?
the total amount of energy used by the body per day
what is the normal glucose range when fasting between meals?
When your blood flow to the skin increases are you cooling or trying to warm?
When your core temperature increases is your body attempting to warm or cool?
Does glycogenesis use anabolism or catabolism?
fatty acids or glycerol
What do fats break down to?
fats not needed for catabolism are stored as what?
what do minerals attach to?
glycolysis, citric acid cycle, ETS
name the 3 steps for energy in catabolism
what is another name for citric acid cycle?
