We use this menu to help us stay well-informed about our diets, especially when it comes to what we eat. It’s called a “metabolic panel” because it’s one of the few places on our menu where we can find out what we eat before we get started.
The metabolic menu is the first step in the metabolic chain of the body, where the body starts breaking down and metabolizing nutrients to create energy. We have to eat a lot of food to get our energy, but when the body is eating itself slowly and efficiently, it’s able to do this without using up too much of it. It’s how our bodies use our calories to keep us alive.
It’s also how we grow. With food, you have to eat right to get the full benefit of your calorie intake, but if you don’t eat a lot, you can’t get the calories you need to grow. If you can’t get the right nutrients, you can’t grow.
