      Decreased basal metabolic rate

      Antidepressant drugs

    • C.

      Psychological health problem

    • D.

      Depression

    Correct Answer
    A. Decreased basal metabolic rate
    Explanation
    The depressant effect of starvation refers to the decrease in the basal metabolic rate. When the body is deprived of adequate food and nutrients, it slows down its metabolic processes to conserve energy. This decrease in metabolic rate can lead to various physiological changes, such as weight loss, fatigue, and decreased body temperature. It is a natural response of the body to adapt to the lack of food and energy availability.

    Family pressures can contribute to the development of eating disorders. This is because family dynamics, such as high expectations, criticism, or an emphasis on appearance, can create a stressful environment that may lead individuals to develop unhealthy relationships with food and their bodies.

Vasal metabolism and electrolytes are not accurate terms for describing the minimum energy needed to maintain the body's systems. While food and water are essential for providing energy, they do not specifically refer to the minimum amount needed for basic bodily functions.
