Boosting your metabolism helps with weight loss

Nutrition Matters

Nutrition MattersYou can boost up your metabolism and burn more calories by by following a healthy nutritional diet and changing your eating habits. Certain fat-burning and nutritional meals can help you lose weight by burning the stubborn belly fat and revving up your metabolism.

Keep in mind that boosting your metabolism can help your body burn more calories and get rid of the unwanted or stubborn fat. A healthy nutritional diet or regular cleansing diet can help to get rid of accumulation of free radicals and toxins and boost up your metabolism and improve weight loss.

Before discussing foods that help metabolism and result in calorie burning and hence weight loss, it is important to first understand underweight issues as well as consider a clearer understanding of weight loss itself (at least from the point of view of metabolic aspects in circumstances that result in weight loss).

About 5% of people (covering both European and Asian ethnic backgrounds) are what may appear to be underweight or thinner that average people in their respective native habitat. They are indeed perfectly healthy and there is nothing wrong with their “apparent” underweight appearance. While there are also cases where underweight or unintended weight loss can be the cause of an underlying health problem. These are often (not always though) the result of perhaps sudden weight loss caused by certain illnesses and/or bacteria or infections or other health conditions. Sometimes these are acute and other times chronic and medical professionals must be involved in addressing the health issues.

Absent of health issues, weight loss is as related to amount of food intake as it is to food absorption. Unintended weight loss can be due to malabsorption of problems such as colon dysfunctional issues, intestinal infections or parasites, ulcer or ulcerative colitis, stomach issues to do with PMS, mild or start of Chrohn’s disease, certain types of cancer, or even surgery, reaction to antibacterial prescriptions drugs, or stress, or trauma after an accident (such as loss of a loved one), or even some form of appetite suppression.

While it is worthwhile to consider the difference between underweight causes and issues and separate them from the causes of weight loss and the healthy aspects of reducing weight through both calorie intake and eating healthier foods while cutting out just food – it is by itself very important to look at weight loss in its entirety. For instance, weight loss can reduce and negatively affect the amount of nutritional intake and cause deficiencies in the body’s immune system which needs to repair itself when it feels impaired and is in need of recovery.

Focusing on metabolism and burning calories and taking in enough essential nutrients is even more significant in age groups whereby under-nutrition can cause serious or significant health issues, such as very young people and the elderly. Malnutrition in these two groups should be regarded as a worrisome situation. In the case of young people, it would cause interference with normal growth and in elderly, it can cause deficient immune system that protects them against illnesses and disease.

When considering weight loss and/or metabolism with regards to burning more calories to reduce weight, the above needs to be considered or even better, to be discussed with your nutritionist.

Today’s Tip:

An excellent way to reduce weight and achieve your intended weight loss both in a healthy way and in a more permanent way, it to use calorie burning and metabolism increasing techniques that are safe and help reduce your weight effectively. If you think you are overweight, discuss your options with your nutritionist. Then may be consider changing your diet to consist of less than 200 grams of complex carbohydrates, 150 grams of good protein, and about 1,200 calories per day. In many cases, starchy vegetables like potatoes and beans can be avoided (may be even reduce grains, eggs, raw cheeses, nuts, and seeds). Ideally, for weight loss, one can eat less but more frequent. Once the body gets use to burning calories more often, and the sugar level is more regulated (consistently), the metabolism kicks into gear to burn more consistently and the body uses up its calories more efficiently, rather than having 2 or 3 large meals that overstress sugar levels, put strain on the body, and often suppress metabolism for the sake of storing fat for energy storage. Fried foods and junk foods in particular affect metabolism drastically and diminishing a prolonged and consistent metabolic process that help reduce weight safely. Instead, the metabolic process is hindered and the body goes into “protect” mode and stores energy (in terms of fat storage) to protect against excessive sugar levels and highly diminished nutritional value in the foods that are consumed.
