What is the Definition of Metabolism?
Metabolism is a term used to describe the process of breaking down a complex molecule to produce energy. Think of your body’s metabolism as a furnace, (it will help for explanation purposes). Often metabolism is associated with the term BMR which stands for Basal Metabolic Rate (also called Resting Metabolic Rate or RMR). BMR is a term used to describe the amount of energy your body uses at rest to survive. Increasing your Basal Metabolic Rate is a highly desirable effect which most of society is trying to achieve. You can purchase a BMR calculator or search the internet for an automatic calculator to assist you.
