people on weight-loss diets often lose weight quickley at first, but then more slowly. this is for all the following reasons except.
the initial weight loss is mostely fat.
fats should account for about_____ percent of the daily caloric intake
Glycogenesis is stimulated by_____, and glycogenolysis is stimulated by_____.

only approximately_____% of the energy in the glucose molecule winds up in ATP, the rest is lost as body heat.
During periods of fasting, fat is said to have a protein-sparing effect because the body.
does not oxidize its proteins unless it has consumed its fat reserves first
a nude body at a room temp. of 21 degrees celsius (70 degrees F) loses most of its heat by
the loss of body heat by conduction cab be enhanced by
the quickest physiological mechanism for achieving moderate heat loss is
shivering warms the body because it increases the rate of
heat exhaustion results from
extreme electrolyte loss in the sweat.
