Why Is It Important to Help Boost Your Metabolism

Copyright (c) 2006-2020

Have you ever started a weight loss program with a friend and found that your weight loss buddy lost much more weight in the same time period? It seemed like the weight just melted off of him or her with little effort on their part.

While you had to sweat for every ounce you lost their extra pound just seemed to melt away. Well, this is not necessarily because you did something wrong.

Nor does it signal any shortcoming on your part. It may simply be a matter of the difference in your friend's metabolism as compared to your own. But what is your metabolism and can it be boosted?

The best approach this problem is to find an effective way to boost your metabolism and increase your level of fat burning.

Metabolism is simply speaking the rate which food is consumed by the body and converted into energy by various processes. The word metabolism is derived from the Greek word 'meta' meaning change or transformation.

Metabolism is an essentially important function of the body. It allows the body to break down the food consumed to perform various tasks.

Metabolism is responsible for the successful actions like:

- maintenance and upkeep of the muscles and tissues - repairing and healing damaged and injured parts of the body and - keeping the body running by providing energy and ridding the body of harmful toxins.


Metabolism is essential for a healthy body because it aids in the system of digestion. It also allows the body to comfortably absorb nutrients in food.

The kind of food you consume affects the metabolism of the body. If you eat healthy nutrient rich food you will more positively affect the metabolism of the body.

The body's metabolism is affected by a few key factors such as...

- proper nutrition - adequate quantities of water, and - properly planned physical activity.


Each of these factors is crucial to maintaining a perfectly balanced rate of metabolism. If we ignore even these factors then the metabolism of the body tends to decrease.

The process of losing excessive weight and weight management is also related very closely to your body's metabolism.

Weight loss is achieved by burning the excessive fats accumulated by the body. The rate or speed you burn fat is dependent upon the your body's metabolism.

Therefore, the easiest way to lose or manage your weight is to boost your metabolism. The trend du jour is for people to adopt a certain diet low in sugar, carbohydrates, fats, or calories.


-- Beware Trendy Diets --
What tends to happen in low calorie diets is you often lower your weight but at the -- expense of your metabolism. Avoid diets built on the myth: ALL FAT IS BAD!!

The body cannot function without fats. In fact if any one of the basic food groups is eliminated from the diet then the metabolism and the overall health of your body will suffer.

The most effective way to boost your metabolism rate is to follow an exercise and good nutritional program. The program should allow you more energized physical activity that will increase your metabolism.

To bust a very powerful and popular myth, your metabolism is not something you are born with. You can increase your metabolic rate.

Take care of your health with a sensible diet and exercise. These simple steps will help to increase your metabolism rate.

The metabolism of your body is directly related to the intensity of the exercises done by you. It is important to maintain continuity and a consistency when working out to increase your metabolism.

A few simple exercises when performed with rigor and intensity can yield very good results. Moreover changing your food habits, does not mean you discard all familiar foods and replace them with tofu.

Carefully chart out a plan where you specifically name which exercises and with what frequency you will adopt them.

Cardiovascular and strength training is a great way to increase metabolism. The body's metabolic rate responds enthusiastically to rigorous activity and trying new exercises with greater intensity forces the body to use up its fat reserves and activates your metabolic rate.

Sports nutritionists understand that the more fat that can be eliminated from the body the better. Proper supplementation can help get rid of stubborn fat. We found a product called Cardio-Stack™ available from Amazon and www.BODeStore.com, that show great promise to release fat from the body into the blood stream where it can more easily be eliminated.

You can increase your metabolism provided you eat healthy and exercise regularly. Don't forget to drink lots of water to consistently flush out the toxins in the body. Fitness guru Denise Austin suggests drinking cold water helps boost your metabolism because your body has to expend energy to help keep you warm.

When did Americans stop taking responsibility for their own actions? My friend agreed that the slide began in the late 1960's with the growth of the drug culture. But he was quick to emphasize that although the sixties began the slide, the real sharp slope did not arrive until the 1990's. Along about 1993, the slide began to sharpen. It was not until early 1998 that the slope became a steep cliff.
