Lose body fat without wrecking your metabolism


Metabolism can be defined as the process where the body converts food into one of 2 things: energy or fat. To prevent food turning to fat you need to speed up your metabolism. In simple terms, if we have a faster metabolism we burn calories more efficiently and store much less fat. A slower metabolism will burn calories less efficiently and therefore store more calories as fat. A fast metabolism means that you're burning calories efficiently all the time whether you're resting or exercising. That includes sleeping. By far the most effective way to speed up your metabolism is by eating small frequent meals. It's so effective, in fact, that if mastered you'll never have difficulty losing body fat every again. People all over the world still believe that eating breakfast, or even three meals a day will cause them to gain weight.

Things to be kept in mind

Keep in mind that energy cannot be created or destroyed, just changed. As we know, potential energy comes from the foods we eat. When talking about weight loss, there are three components of balanced energy, which include calorie intake, calories stored, and calories expended. On the other hand, if the balance becomes positive, caused by more food being eaten than is burned, energy is destroyed or in better terms, stored as body fat. It is important to remember that you can be eating a diet considered low-fat and still gain weight. The reason is that most dietary fat is stored while the body is burning carbohydrates and proteins for energy. The problem is the when a person gains weight, the increased level of fat becomes stored energy until the calorie balance is negative. For that to happen, the amount of calories burned needs to exceed the number of calories being consumed, no matter what the macronutrient content.

Conclusion

Metabolism is the rate at which the body uses energy to support the basic functions essential to sustain life. This metabolism is comprised of three parts, which include physical activity (20%), Thermic Effect of Food, also called TEF (10%), and Resting Metabolism Rate or REM (70%). Physical activity is the amount of energy your body burns up during normal, daily activities to include housework, recreation, work, exercise, and so on. Obviously, someone that is physically active will burn more energy than a sedentary person will. TEF accounts for the energy used in digesting and absorbing nutrients, which would vary depending on the meal's composition. When a person overeats, TEF is increased because more food must be digested. Here is where metabolism becomes very interesting and what causes so much confusion.
