5 Easy Ways To Boost Your Metabolism Naturally

My clients are constantly asking me how to boost their flagging metabolism.

So, in today's article I wanted to cover 5 easy ways to boost your metabolism naturally.

Matcha

First off, a bit of background info. Your metabolism refers to all the chemical reactions that are involved in maintaining life. These chemical reactions enable your internal organs to function and you to grow, breathe and reproduce. All these processes require energy, so your metabolism works to convert the fuel in the food you eat into the energy you use.

The minimum amount of energy that your body requires in order to complete all these chemical process, to maintain life, is called your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR). The BMR refers to the number of calories, or amount of energy, that your body requires to function, without moving. When people believe that they have a ‘slow’ metabolism, it is this energy requirement that they are usually referring to.

Your BMR is affected by your age, weight, gender, genes and body composition and slows as we age. It’s s faster for men than women and is in correlation to weight. Muscle requires more calories to maintain than fat, so those with more muscle will have a faster BMR. Therefore, as we age we tend to lose muscle mass and gain fat, meaning our metabolism slows.

Unfortunately crash-diets and lose-weight-quick fads can severely damage your metabolism. This is because, when the body is rigorously calorie restricted, it is forced to break-down muscle for energy. As we discovered above, the less muscle you have, the slower your metabolism will be.

So, if you would like to increase your metabolism, click here for 5 easy ways to boost it, safely and healthily.
