Lesson 3.2 – What is fast and slow metabolism?

In this lesson we will explore how exercise and body composition relate to metabolic rates. The concepts we cover include the idea that ‘fast’ or ‘slow’ metabolism is largely a consequence of lean muscle mass. Students will use primary data to explore the relationship between basal metabolic rate (BMR) and body composition. We will also explore other factors that may contribute to metabolic rate, such as efficiency of food absorption.
