The Story Behind Metabolism
Each year, tens of millions of people attempt to retake control over their health and the shape of their body; and each year, tens of millions of people feel that they’ve failed because, try as they might, they just can’t speed up their metabolism.
A Final Word About Fat, The Rumour
There’s a nasty rumour floating around out there that fat cells are permanent. And the nastiest thing about this rumour is that it’s true.
Yes, most experts conceded that fat cells, once created, are there for life. Yet this doesn’t spell doom and gloom to those of us who could stand to drop a few pounds. Because even though experts believe that fat cells are permanent, they also agree that fat cells can be shrunk.
So even if the absolute number of fat cells in your body remains the same, their size, and hence their appearance and percentage of your overall weight, can be reduced.
So while we haven’t gone into any medical detail, because we don’t need to or want to, we have covered some key basics about Metabolism.
In fact, you probably know as much about metabolism now as many so-called experts. The bottom line is simply that metabolism represents a process, countless processes, in fact, that convert food into energy. When this process creates cells, it’s called Anabolism.
When this process breaks cells down, it’s called Catabolism.
For people trying to lose weight, it’s important to experience Catabolism.
That is, it’s important to convert food into energy that is used to break cells down.
Catabolism is also important because it prevents excess energy (calories) from being stored by the body.
Remember, when the body has too many calories, regardless of what food source those calories came from, it can only do two things. It can desperately try and see if you have any energy needs (like maybe you’re running a marathon at the time).
Or, more often, it will have to store those calories. It has no choice. And unless you have lean muscle that is gobbling up those excess calories, you’ll be adding fat.
The remainder of this website, however, is going to point you in the opposite direction. You’ll learn various techniques, tips, and strategies to boost your Metabolism.
And then, in the latter part of this website, you’ll be introduced to some Metabolism boosting foods that you’ll surely want to add to your regular eating regimen.
