Metabolic Weight Loss
What does your metabolism do?
Your metabolism refers to the internal processes that your body goes through in order to turn the food and drinks you eat into energy. This complex process involves combining the calories you consume with oxygen in order to release energy for your bodily functions. These functions include breathing, keeping hormone levels balanced, circulating blood throughout the body, and repairing your cells. Without proper metabolic rate, your body would be unable to perform these necessary functions.
What does metabolism have to do with weight loss?
You may hear people blaming a “slow metabolism” for weight gain, when in reality, this is not usually the case. In rare circumstances, a medical problem, such as an underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism) may cause decreased metabolic function and weight gain, but in most cases weight gain is more complicated.
While you may not be able to control the base rate of your metabolism (which is usually dependent on hereditary factors), you can increase the calories you burn by staying physically active and eating a balanced diet.
