Diet-Induced Thermogenesis

  • Chapter

Abstract

Diet-induced thermogenesis (DIT) refers to the increase in metabolic rate that follows the ingestion of food, as well as changes associated with chronic alterations in the overall level of energy intake (i.e. the plane of nutrition). The term DIT therefore includes phenomena such as the specific dynamic action (SDA) or thermic effect (TE) of food, and is synonymous with the heat increment of feeding (HIF) used by agricultural nutritionists (see previous chapter for dicusssion of terminology).
