At the outset, it is worth mentioning that how we treat our bodies and whether we eat and exercise healthily has a huge impact on the proper functioning of the body. Metabolism is influenced by a number of factors, such as a balanced intake and expenditure of calories or a sedentary lifestyle.
The origin of the word metabolism comes from the Greek word metabolismos, which means change.
In the human body, metabolism refers to the metabolism and energy exchange where our body takes in and processes nutrients essential to its functioning. And, in fact, to our lives.
Metabolism in our body is divided into two parts - catabolism and anabolism. Catabolism breaks down the complex nutrients our body takes in into simpler substances. Anabolism, on the other hand, makes simpler substances into more complex mechanisms that are responsible for building muscle mass.
You've probably heard the term basal metabolism, which is the resting metabolism that takes care of the normal running of our body.
There is also the concept of hypermetabolism, which is an accelerated metabolism, which in most cases is related to increased thyroid function, fever and other diseases.
Now let's take a look at some tips on how to speed up the metabolism so that it works effectively, for example, when losing weight.
Protein is the most satiating macronutrient, requiring 20-30% of its energy value for metabolism, the most of any nutrient. If we take in 100 calories from protein, we use about 70-80 calories. The rest is used up by the metabolism of the protein itself, which needs a large amount of energy to transfer it to our tissues, such as muscles and organs. Additional energy is used by our metabolism in the excretion of waste products when we consume large amounts of protein.
A sufficient supply of protein will feed not only you, but also your muscles, and as a bonus you will burn the most calories. A tempting thought, isn't it?
Let's not forget about carbohydrates either. These allow you to expend more energy in a short time.
Why drink more water to speed up your metabolism? Our body is largely made up of water, and we can't do without it. Inside our bodies, all biochemical processes take place and energy is obtained.
Mitochondria are part of all cells that produce energy for our body. When we are sufficiently hydrated, our mitochondria work a little better than when we are thirsty.
Green tea and coffee are both beverages that contain antioxidants and other biologically active substances and are beneficial to our health. Both coffee and tea contain caffeine, and it is a natural fat burner, sounds great. When you have a cup of coffee or tea, adrenaline is flushed out, which positively affects the use of fat as an energy source.
However, beware of the amount of caffeine and don't overdo it. Stick to around 400 mg of caffeine per day, which is equivalent to 3-4 cups of espresso or 6-7 cups of tea. If you overdo it, you'll get a headache, nausea, rapid heartbeat, irritability and palpitations. So in this case, less is more.
What does enough sleep mean? If you sleep less than 6 hours, that's a problem. For most of the population, the ideal sleep duration is between 7 and 9 hours per day. We should also pay attention to the quality of sleep. Lack of sleep increases appetite, however, it causes less satiety, lowers testosterone levels and increases stress hormones. And that's not all, sleep deprivation can lead to slow weight gain.
Don't forget your morning snack, preferably 2 to 3 hours after breakfast.
Have a snack in the afternoon too, it will keep you full and you won't overeat during your main meal and it will also prevent your metabolism from falling asleep. This practice will give you energy and you will burn efficiently throughout the day.
Your metabolism doesn't speed up overnight, it's a gradual process. If you eat right, incorporate plenty of exercise and fluids into your day, then it will definitely happen.
