How we burn energy

There are 3 main ways:

  • the basal metabolism, the¬†energy used for your body's basic functioning while at rest
  • the energy used to break down food(also known as the thermic effect of food)
  • the energy used in physical activity.

Most of the energy you burn is from your resting metabolism.
