Nutrition and Metabolism Disorder
What is the relationship between intake of nutrition and metabolism disorder? Is slow metabolism the cause of my overweight? Are there any types of nutrition that can speed it up? Could a pill speed it up?
There are many myths and misconceptions about metabolism. The idea that a low metabolic rate is always responsible for excess weight is one of them. Another is that a slower-than-average metabolism, means you're destined to be obese.
What is metabolism?
Metabolism is the rate at which your body breaks down the nutrients in food to produce energy. A person with a "fast" metabolism, for example, utilizes calories more quickly, in some cases making it easier to stave off excess pounds.
Your metabolism is primary determined by your body composition: the more total fat-free mass you have the higher your resting metabolic rate will be.
Other factors that determine your metabolism is
Workouts for increasing your metabolism
Can certain foods affect your metabolism?
Pills and Supplements
Find out your daily calorie need
For losing one pound of body fat a week, you must create a deficit of 500 calories a day. The most reasonable way to do that, and thus avoid a big metabolic decrease, is through a combination of exercise and diet. You could for example eliminate 2.50 calories from your diet, and add enough activity to burn an extra 250.
Here is how you do it:
Determine your basic metabolism rate or RMR
1 RMR = 655 + (9.6 X your weight in kilograms*) + (1.8 X your height in centimetres**) - (4.7 X your age in years)
2 Factor in your daily activity: Multiply your RMR by the appropriate activity factor:
3 Your final figure represents the minimum number of daily calories that you need to maintain your current weight.
