Body mass is the ratio of body height to body weight. If a BMI is high, there is an increased risk of developing certain diseases including:
Prevention of further weight gain is important and weight reduction is desirable.
MIC B is suggested for patients with high BMIs
The body extracts and uses energy through the process of metabolism. Metabolism occurs in two distinct and interdependent phases: 1.) Catabolism, in which the body breaks down food into its component parts and harvests the energy stored in its atomic bonds, and 2.) Anabolism, in which those component parts and energy are used to build new tissues and conduct basic life functions. Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) is the amount of energy a body requires every day to perform its most basic function including:
BMR varies between the sexes and with age. Lean body mass is a major determinant of BMR and women tend to have less lean muscle mass. As a result, their BMR is lower than that of otherwise comparable males. BMR is at its peak during infancy, and then it declines rapidly through childhood and adolescence. It continues to fall slowly with increasing age and declines further with old age largely due to a loss of muscle mass. However, this is not inevitable, because weight-bearing (resistance) exercise, arginine supplementation, and in some cases when medically indicated growth hormone will prevent or reverse muscle loss among the elderly.
BMR estimates how fast you burn calories. The slower your metabolism, the more fat you will retain. If you burn your daily calorie intake, you will maintain your current weight. Burning more than your daily intake causes weight loss. There are many factors that vary in metabolism. However, exercise and daily activity is the key to increasing your BMR. There can be major nutritional consequences due to the decline of the BMR in advanced age. Decreased caloric requirements for the elderly may lead to decreased food intake. Consequently, low food intake can lead to an insufficient intake of essential nutrients.
Thyroid Support MD is recommended for those with low normal basal metabolic rates.
