Speed Metabolism Tip - How Does Cholesterol And Lack Of
Exercise Relates To Metabolic Rate ?
The food that we eat gives
energy to the body. The process by which the body converts
the food it eats to energy to make it move, run, sing, jump,
swim is through the metabolic process of converting the nutrients
of the food to energy.
Without the needed energy, our body simply
cannot function. Even when we are at rest, our body continues
to function and the amount of energy or calories to be burned
for this requirement is termed as the Basal Metabolic rate.
In other words, Basal
metabolic rate is the amount of calories burned by our
bodies at rest.
It is the amount of calories burned to produce
the required energy to maintain our heart beat, our blood
circulation, our digestion, our breathing, our Snoring (that
is if you snore at sleep) and every thing else during the
time when we are sleeping.
There is another important function that
metabolism does aside from converting foods to energy –
it is responsible for breaking up harmful substances such
as drugs, alcohol and other chemicals that might be in our
The rate of our body’s metabolism actually,
as per study made by experts on metabolism, is controlled
in some ways by several hormones coming out from our endocrine
Our thyroid glands has the
capacity to dictate if how fast or how slow will be the metabolic
rate of our body through its ability to release a hormone
known as Thyroxine which has the natural
function to either increase
the metabolic rate of the body or slow it down.
And likewise, it has been verified that
many disorders of the body are somehow directly or indirectly
related with the body metabolism.
Further, advanced studies has discovered
that these disorders which has now come to be popularly known
as Metabolism Syndrome,
have one common cause - Insulin
such as lack of physical
exercise, genetics, unhealthy lifestyles such as smoking,
drinking excessive amount of alcoholic drinks, lack of rest
or sleep due to excessive night life and unrestrained sexual
appetite might lead to Metabolism Syndrome.
Once you have this kind of disorder, and
you will not be careful, the possibilities of hearth
disease, hypertension, stroke, diabetes and other diseases
might afflict you at any time.
Obesity and diabetes are now one of the more
problems of many people. Aside from children, obesity
among the older generation is fast becoming a problem for
That is why the moment your weight is on
the rise, do not waste time before you decide to do something
about it. Act on it immediately and effectively, through plenty
of exercise and cholesterol free diet.
If you take a look a little more closely as to what may be
the cause of metabolic syndrome, you would come to know that
cholesterol and metabolic rate are quite closely interlinked
with each other.
A person who do not exercise nor play sweat
soaking games like basketball, lawn tennis or any activity
that can make him burn calories and is just given to sitting,
sleeping and eating cholesterol rich foods would then be a
good candidate for Metabolic Syndrome.
