1

BMR stands for

Basal metabolic rate

2

RMR stands for

Resting metabolic rate

3

Measuring this rate of energy use requires the individual to sleep in a testing facility, fast for 12 hours, and have energy expenditure measured when they first awaken

Basal energy expenditure

4

Generally speaking, BMR is (higher/lower) in younger people.

Higher

5

Generally speaking, BMR is (higher/lower) in taller people

Higher

6

Generally speaking, BMR is (higher/lower) in heavier people

Higher

7

The expression _______________ is used to describe the energy expended by our bodies in order to consume (bite, chew, and swallow) and process (digest, transport, metabolize and store) food.

Thermic effect of food

8

The Harris-Benedict equation does not provide a valid estimate because they didn't include people in these categories

Obese people, nor of younger and older people

9

This equation makes adjustments to the Harris-Benedict equation and appears to be one of the more accurate of those available for estimating resting metabolic rate

The Mifflin equation

10

Represents the percent of the body mass that is fat and muscle

Body mass index (BMI)

11

The activity calculator at this site that estimates daily energy expenditure for different levels of physical activity only uses this measurement from the date you enter

(MET) Metabolic Equivalent, the amount of oxygen consumed performing each activity

12

The activity calculator at this site that estimates daily energy expenditure for different levels of physical activity does not use these measurements in the date you enter

RMR or BMR, instead it uses a constant based on your weight alone

13

Always remember that calculator like these have questionable accuracy because they are?

Estimates, not actual measurements
