What is the definition of metabolism? “The chemical processes occurring within our bodies that are necessary for the maintenance of life”.
Energy is required for these chemical processes to occur and where does this energy come from? This energy comes from the carbohydrates that we consume which is converted into glucose (blood sugar) and body fat; the human body can also convert protein into energy. Having a fast metabolism means that more energy is going to be used therefore boosting your metabolism will have a positive impact on weight loss.
I am going to discuss the 2 ways in which you can boost your metabolism naturally;
- Meal Frequency – Just by increasing your daily food intake to 5 or 6 small meals per day (As long as you do not exceed your calorie consumption) – one approximately every 3 waking hours will sky rocket your metabolism and this has been scientifically proven. It has also been proven by millions of people out there, professional bodybuilders, fitness models and myself included.
- Muscle – Muscle is your body’s metabolic furnace, it uses energy even while you are sleeping. Having large, strong and healthy muscles can boost your metabolism tremendously and prevent joint and bone injury due to strain, it will also reduce the risk of osteoporosis which is a very painful bone disease. Therefore weight training should be an integral part of your training program.
The combination of these 2 ways will miraculously boost your metabolism naturally and keep it elevated.
