How To Get Your Metabolism Moving Part: 1

So everyone knows that you need to speed up your metabolism to lose weight. But what does your metabolism really do?

Your Resting Metabolic Rate is the amount of energy your body needs to perform its basic functions. These are the very basic functions like breathing, and your heart beating. So it is how much energy it would take for you to do absolutely nothing all day. This actually accounts for about about 75% of your daily needed calories.

Did you know that digesting your food actually burns calories? This is called the Thermic Effect of Food (TEF). Your body burns about 10% of the calories you consume just by digesting it. If you eat 2000 calories a day, you burn 200 just breaking it down inside your body.

Remember not everyone’s metabolism is the same. Everyone knows someone, and secretly despises them, that can eat anything and never gain an ounce. Some people need to count calories and measure proportions just to keep from gaining the extra pounds. You will have to adjust your diet and workout plan to adjust for your body’s metabolism.

Don’t worry, you aren’t stuck with a slow metabolism. There are several ways to rev it up.

The more muscle and the less fat you have the higher your Resting Metabolic Rate will be. It takes energy/ calories just to maintain muscle so the more you have the more energy you need and the more calories you burn. Fat on the other hand is stored energy and doesn’t do anything to help your metabolism.

Adding some spice to your life can help to speed up your metabolism. Spicy food will actually increase your heart rate which will jump start your RMR. Some studies also show that spicy food helps to suppress your appetite. So spicy food can help you eat less and burn more calories, pass me a bottle of Tabasco!
