A change in metabolism can result in weight loss, i.e. a change in the basal metabolic rate, which is the amount of energy in the form of calories needed by a person during rest. If you tend to eat a lot and have little physical activity, the fat in your body lowers the basal metabolic rate; this takes place because the fat in the body helps in placing little demand for energy on the body during a period of immobility, such as sleeping, and converts the surplus energy into more fat.
A person has a specific number of fat cells at the time of birth and these can be full of fat, totally empty, or partially filled. The storehouse of readily available energy in the body is the fat it contains. Your readily available energy stores come from creatine phosphate and glycogen, but it is the contingency fat store your body taps into to maintain your basal metabolic rate in times of high energy demand, such as food shortages and famine.
This is the driving force behind the pumping of your heart, the breathing of your lungs, and the proper functioning of your brain and nervous system to maintain life; it is hard to imagine the human race surviving, as it did, without the fountain of energy called ‘fat.’ Still, for most people the concept of beauty does not include having fat stores which, by the way, do have a significant role in blocking arteries and restricting blood flow and putting a surplus strain on the heart.
As a result, it’s advisable to keep those fat reserves down from a medical perspective, predominantly in the modern West where famines are practically unheard of. The reason why it’s possible to lose your weight by changing your metabolism is that your metabolic rate is dependent upon the total amount of muscle tissue your body has and upon your level of activity. By increasing the amount of physical activity and by increasing your muscle tissue to fat ratio, you can increase your metabolic rate and the utilization of calories while resting. For the sake of utilizing those surplus calories and increasing your basal metabolic rate, and in order to lose weight, adopt a livelier lifestyle.
A fit body ends up using more of those extra calories on a daily basis than a body that’s unfit and has more fat stores. This is what the athletes don’t tell you when they are eating all they want without feeling full or gaining an inch. The explanation for this is that their metabolism works at a much faster pace and uses up energy much more quickly than that of an unfit person’s.
To increase the muscle tissue in your body for the sake of changing your metabolism, increase the amount of protein in your diet. Protein or protein supplements coupled with colored fruits and vegetables constitute a sensible diet. Carbohydrates, which are used as energy providers, and amino acids, which are used to make new muscle tissue, are the two things that protein is broken down to in the body. Varied phytochemicals and antioxidants significant for health can be delivered to the body through the appropriate intake of vegetables and fruits.
