100
This is the breaking down of complex chemicals into simple ones by the release of energy
What is Catabolism ?
100
This is the building up of complex chemicals from simple ones by the expenditure of energy
What is anabolism?
100
All metabolic reactions are driven by these and are the main reasons why reactions occur.
What are enzymes?
100

This is the term for how fast metabolism happens.

Metabolic rate.

100

These chemicals break food down into their component parts.

What are Enzymes?

200

This is what is converted to energy by the process of metabolism.

Food!

200
The enzyme does not change or is not consumed during a reaction... TRUE OR FALSE
What is TRUE
200

Enzymes reduce protein to this.

Amino acids.

200

Enzymes reduce fat to this.

Fatty acids.

200

Fatty acids, amino acids, and sugars are transported to cells by _________.

Blood/the circulatory system

300

This is the most common way our body stores excess energy.

Fat

300
Energy that is not immediately used will be _____.

Stored as fat.

300

Metabolism can be thought of as a balancing act between these two processes.

Building up/breaking down body tissue

OR

Anabolism/Catabolism

300

These are two specific tasks of anabolism:

Building up of tissue

Storing of energy

Repairing cells and tissue

300

These are two specific tasks of catabolism:

Fuel anabolism

Heat the body

Enable muscles to contract/move

400

What happens if metabolism ceases?

Death

400

Two organs that help release the waste products of metabolism are: 

(Any two of the below)
Skin

Kidneys

Lungs

Intestines

400

This is the pancreas' role in metabolism.

Release enzymes to determine if anabolism or catabolism is needed, depending on blood glucose level.

400

True or false: a calorie is the measure of how much fat is in a particular food.

False. A calorie is a measure of how much energy a food contains.

400

True or false: 70% of the calories we need to stay alive are used for sleeping, breathing, and other essential tasks.

True

500

Does metabolism happen while you sleep?

Yes

500

This is one way to control your metabolic rate.

(Any one of the below)

Adequate sleep

Small meals throughout the day

Staying hydrated

500

What is metabolism?

Chemical reactions within the body that convert food into energy.

500

Glucose is one kind of ______.

Sugar

500

Explain why apple juice and whole apples do not affect your metabolism in the same way.

Apple juice: concentrated sugar with no fibre. A body cannot metabolize the sugar fast enough and it is turned into fat.

Whole apple: The fibre in the apple slows digestions and absorption of the sugars, creating lasting energy that is released slowly.
