Can you help me with this question?

The determinant of total energy requirement that may most appropriately
be manipulated in a weight loss program
is:

1. basal matabolic rate
2. physical activity
3. dietary thermogenesis
4. body temperature

Would the correct answer be #2 or #3?

dietary thermogenesis cannot be manipulated, can it? It is based on basal metabolism.

Are basal metabolic energy needs determined by involuntary activities?

Of course. Basal = basic, breathing, heart beating, temperature regulation.

i don't know. u said please read this and i did and this is what i'm saying.

good 4 u!!
