Metabolism is the conversion of food and drink into energy by your body. Calories from food and beverages are mixed with oxygen throughout this complicated process to release the energy your body requires to function.
What are the 3 stages of Metabolism?
The following are the three steps of nutrient breakdown:
Stage 1: Glycolysis for glucose, ?-oxidation for fatty acids, or amino acid catabolism.
Stage 2: Citric Acid Cycle (or Kreb cycle)
Stage 3: Electron Transport Chain and ATP synthesis.
