The basal metabolism is the minimum energy that body needs to be alive and supposes the greater part of that cost, because 70% of the calories that we ingested are destined to maintain these functions basic. A 10% take care in the termogenesis of the foods, which is the absorption, digestion and use of such. Only a 20% of the calories contributed by the food are burned in daily activities like walking. The speed of the metabolism directly is related to the thin mass of the people. This one is made up of no greasy weaves like the bones, the blood, the muscles, and needs much greater energy to work than the greasy mass. The muscles correspond to 60% of thin mass and the more muscle has, the more calories are burned. This is the main reason for which much people gain weight with the age, since from the maturity there is a natural tendency to lose muscular mass, the size of muscles diminishes and, like consequence, the metabolism is become slower little by little. The changes begin to notice about the 30 year old, by hormonal factors, and they become more evident from the 50 years old.
