(BMR measured at rest) - small % is going to be used to maintain body temp s urprisingly is that when you consume food - the digestive process excends energ - consume a moderate breakfast becuase it not only gets your metbaolic going and its burning some calories . when y ou eat protein you burn more calories digesting then c arbohydrates. stay fuller when you consume protein - most of your calories. more muslce higher BMR - can consume more calories - your BMR will be dictacted by thyroide hormone - body composition how many calories you can consume . (BMR) 3/27/13 MCB 2000 Lecture 18 Importance of maintaining blood glucose Daily need for glucose Brain needs ~120 grams Body fluids 20 grams Glycogen stores ~4.5 mM 160 grams 190 grams Why is blood gluocse important? - Normal blood glucose = 100 ml per CC of blood a little bit lower is ok - your body on average needs 160 grams of the 160 grams you brain need 120 - the size of you brain and what it weights relative to skeltal muslce the brain has a disporptional for blood glucose - that is why that it cruical to maintin glucose homeonstatis- normal blood glucose is about 80 - go to around 40 - can go into a coma - brain not getting enough gluocse to a brain (hypogluocis) - the shakes. s tore away gluogan - sotrgea 190 grams - maintin you for with 24 hours without eating - the brain is so dependent on glucose becuase it cannot use fat for energy when everyone other tissue in the body can - your body is going to start tapping into fat s toarge but the brain cant do this - 3/27/13 MCB 2000 Lecture 18 How is blood glucose regulated? within about 4 hours your blood glucose levels return to about 100 - within the 4 hour window (body is r estored to 100 glucose level) - as glucose level rise it spikes as soon as your eat a carbohydrate c ontainging meal - insulin is r eleased where as gluoagon levels are not dramatically effected Glucose itself Importance of 2 hormones Insulin Glucagon Both insulin and glucagon alter the activity of enzymes by changes in phosphorylation/dephosphorylation (respective signal transduction cascades) http://highered.mcgrawhill.com/sites/0072495855/student_view0/chapter20/animation__blood_s ugar_regulation_in_diabetics.html 3/27/13 Insulin Insulin- metbaolic anabolic homrone - promotes sythesis of fatty acids phosplipids cholrestoral - all of your body needs - your body doenst produce insulin (type I diabetes) type II body produces insulin but doesn't r esponse to the inusiln singalling casade Small protein made in the beta cells of the pancreas.
