The Fight Against Belly Fat

Metabolism is the rate at which your body consumes energy, or burns calories. Your metabolism burns calories all the time, whether you're just sitting on the couch or working in the gym.

Your relaxation metabolism measures the number of calories needed to maintain your body's function. Even when we sleep, our metabolism works. Your body uses energy to keep going - to make your heart beat, your kidney function, and so on. This is known as the Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) and the amount of calories you burn while you sleep all day and night.

Many factors can affect your BMR, including your age, health, stress level, and the temperature of your environment. To get a general idea of ​​your BMR, increase your weight 10 times.

For example: If you weigh £ 150;

BMR = 150 x 10 kcal / lb = 1,500 kcals.

Metabolism is affected by your body composition. This is the amount of muscle you have compared to the amount of fat. Muscles use more calories to maintain themselves from fat. People who are overweight (and have lower body fat) are said to have higher metabolism than others who are less muscular and will naturally burn more calories.

After the age of 30, your body gradually begins to lose muscle. If your activity level remains the same and the amount of calories you eat remains the same, you will gain weight as your metabolism slows down.

Symptoms of slow metabolism include fatigue, colds, dry skin, constipation, slow pulse and low blood pressure. These symptoms can be the result of a medical condition rather than a low metabolism - so be sure to consult your doctor to avoid any type of medical problem.

While lowering your calorie and fat intake may be an important part of losing weight, both reduce your metabolism. It's not a good idea to skip meals or to cut down on excess calories, as the decline in metabolism causes the body to burn less calories and fat. It can also cause your body to store excess fat in storage usually located around your center.

Many diet plans today or weight loss systems focus on people wanting to have a slimmer, more attractive body. They focus on the promise of fast weight loss. I'm sure we've all seen headlines like this:

Lose 20 pounds in 10 days without even trying!

There is not much focus on the more important aspects of healthy, long-term weight loss. Also, it's almost impossible to lose 2 or 3 pounds of fat in a week. Any weight loss above this is only water that can be reused by drinking it. Not really permanent?

Although most of these diets provide fast weight loss at first, they usually only provide short-term results because they can cause your metabolism to slow down (due to restricting your calorie intake) meaning you need to eat less and lose weight to lose weight. This is why some diets can cause plateaux effects where you may find it almost impossible to lose weight again.

The plateaux effect often causes people to give up on their diet through frustration, and inevitably their weight recedes. You didn't notice at first but a few weeks down the line and suddenly those sexy jeans didn't fit. How did it happen?

Losing weight naturally is far more effective, providing long-term benefits to your waistline and general health. Eating healthier, smaller portions and adding a little exercise can make a big difference in fighting fights and lead to slimmer and healthier ones.

Weight loss is not necessarily due to lower metabolism but it is a side effect. Finding the right balance is the most important thing. Eating a healthy diet, incorporating some form of exercise and paying attention to your body will help in the fight against belly fat.
