Overview Of Metabolism
Actually, metabolism is the body mechanism
that is responsible for converting the nutrients of digested
foods coming from our digestive system to become energy to
fuel our body.
It is a biochemical process that is mainly
composed of two alternating and opposed process known as anabolism
and catabolism whose task is to build molecules for cells
and tissues and also to destroy food nutrients molecules known
as calories to produce energy for the body.
Even as the body sleeps, metabolism provides
the body with energy to fuel its continuing operation like
digestion, blood circulation, hearth pumping action, breathing
and snoring, and even the brains while it is dreaming of far
away places and beautiful women.
Researchers of metabolism have labeled the
amount of energy expended by the body during the stage where
it is sleeping as the Basal
Since metabolism is a process by which it
burns calories to provide the body with energy, making your
metabolism burns calories at a faster rate will surely make
you loss weight faster.
That is, if you also control your intake
of calories. Actually, if you think about it, to effectively
loss weight, you have to limit your calories intake and increase
the amount of calories you burn.
And if you are thinking about how you can
your metabolism, there was a study made in relation to
In the study, they pointed out that you can increase your
body metabolism by eating you breakfast each day.
Their observation have indicated that during
the time that the body sleeps at night, metabolism will begin
to slow down especially so when the food that was eaten for
dinner was already fully digested.
down of body metabolism will continue until you have breakfast
when your digestion begun to start and your metabolism again
will start to process the nutrients and burn calories.
In relation to this study, they have suggested
that you can increase further your rate of metabolism by changing
your habit of eating. They suggested that instead of taking
three full meals a day, you change that to six half-full meals
This schedule of eating they said will enable
your metabolism to increase since it will have to burn more
calories for the energy required to process six digestion
processes instead of just three.
Exercise on the other hand, will greatly
help your body metabolism. According to a research conducted
by a group of medical scientist, physical exercise and metabolism
has a close relationship.
A regular daily exercise can boost the level
of your metabolism, but an endurance exercise can even boost
it further. When it comes to exercise, try to do exercises
that can make you sweat profusely.
If you wish, you can also join group exercises
like aerobics and dance sport. Doing an early morning walk
or jogging would be good. For men, playing basketball, lawn
tennis or table tennis, soccer and swimming would be very
good for metabolism.
When it comes to food,
control your calorie intake. You can browse the net and look
for sites that offer free food tables where you can find different
kinds of foods with corresponding calorie content approximation.
If you still do not have the table for calories,
play it safe by eating fish and leafy green vegetables. Also,
eat a lot of fruits like bananas, and apples.
It would be thus worth noting that you can
have a good body
metabolism through good diet with scheduled time of eating
and proper exercise.
