Metabolism is a term that is used to describe all chemical reactions involved in maintaining the living state of the cells and the organism. The three main purposes of metabolism are the conversion of food/fuel to energy to run cellular processes, the conversion of food/fuel to building blocks for proteins, lipids, nucleic acids, and some carbohydrates, and the elimination of nitrogenous wastes.
