  • According to researchers and health experts, your weight obeys the basic laws of thermodynamics. In other words, you should burn whatever you ingest if you want to lose weight. If there is a surplus of calories, it goes into your “belly” as a fat deposit. If you burn more than you eat, you lose weight. However, what people are not aware of is poor metabolism and weight gains are commonly associated with one another and meaning the poorer the metabolism, the more weight you gain. It’s a misconception that there is nothing you can do to make the metabolism behave. In real, it’s the other way round. Interestingly, scientists reveal that proper intake of food and the right nutrition can help activate metabolism.

  • “Food” is a mixture of thousands of different ingredients which when ingested during a certain time of day will fuel your body and enhance your metabolism.

  • Metabolism:

  • To find out if your metabolism is off is to squeeze the fat in front of your abdomen. The thicker the fat layer, the slower your metabolism.

  • But what exactly is metabolism?

  • “It is a collective process which provides the necessary energy for good body function.”

  • What actually happens:

  • When you eat poorly for a certain period of time, you reach a plateau and your weight does not decrease any longer.  Both your fat tissue and your muscle mass in particular shrink, but the actual fat loss is minimal as the weight loss is mainly due to the loss of water; not due to fat tissue loss.

  • During this period of weight loss, your muscles disintegrate and become atrophic, and you therefore burn fewer calories while at a plateau, realizing your minimal improvement, you lose your motivation and energy. When your energy is low, you voluntarily decrease your physical activity, therefore your total energy expenditure decreases markedly shutting off your metabolism as a reflex defensive measure. You can go back to your old eating habits, regain more weight, most of the time it is in the form of fat and your muscle mass remains small. The fat tissue piles up in your abdomen, when there is no more room in your abdominal fatty cells. Then the piled fat tissue infiltrates your liver and your muscles and your metabolism becomes very inefficient. Your body loses its ability to burn fat as a source of energy.
