How Digestion Affects Metabolism
The focus on weight
loss has given much attention to metabolism because of
how it affect the body’s natural mechanism for burning
fats toward a more healthy, firm and slimmer body.
Logic, however, tells us that aside from
metabolism, we should also understand the workings behind
the process by which metabolism will have to happen because
of this system.
What I am referring to is our digestive systems
and how digestion
affects our metabolism. Naturally, there can be no metabolism
without foods being digestive in our digestive system.
The foods we eat are digestive first in our
digestive organs before they are subjected to being metabolized
by our body through a complex.
Biochemical process with the dual involvement
of virtually opposing processes known as anabolic and catabolic
natural mechanism that comprises the metabolic characteristics.
Metabolism starts as soon the food you eat
will be digested by your digestive system. This natural biochemical
process will turn the protein from your food into amino acids;
The fat content of the food will likewise
be turned into fatty acids, while the carbohydrate contents
will be turned into glucose If you have taken in an excess
amount of carbohydrates,
The glucose that cannot be immediately absorbed
by your body will be channeled to your muscles and liver and
once these are also fully saturated, then the excess glucose
will be stored by your body as fats.
These fatty acids and glucose are energy
nutrients and will be utilized by your body as such to give
it the needed energy for the body’s daily activity.
The process will be for the nutrients or
compounds to be absorbed by the blood and would interact with
cells that would result to a faster metabolism to produce
the energy very vital to the needs of the body.
During all these time that the digestive
process is on-going, the body either stores these energy from
the nutrients of the foods which had been processed or spend
it altogether as the body is undergoing physical activities
that needs burning of energy.
This is the basic reasoning why researchers
have suggested eating smaller meals six times a day instead
of eating full meals three times a day.
By eating smaller amount of meals several
times a day will result to a higher
metabolic rate because it will result to a more continues
metabolic action as compared to eating full meals three times
The continuing digestion of your body will
enable your metabolism to also function more, resulting to
a higher metabolic rate.
And to make sure you can have a higher metabolic
your foods that are easily digested and those that are
low in fats. You are now aware about the relation of your
digestion to your metabolism.
So it is now up to you to properly select
those foods that can make your digestion easy and increase
the metabolic rate of your body to provide for a healthier
and a trimmer body that you always have wanted for yourself.
