Here is a post from a previous contributor to the site who discusses metabolism and the effect it has on your ability to lose weight.
Almost all the people who want to strengthen their metabolism seem to have accurate formula to make it feasible. These formulas may include natural foods, man made supplements, meditation and routine exercises but before attempting to buy them and use either of these options to boost your metabolism speedily for significantly losing your fat, you must be familiar with the myths related to boosting of metabolism by losing weight.
Quick weight loss may damage metabolism
First of all it has to be clarified that nothing can damage your metabolism and for this you must know what is metabolism. Metabolism depicts the processes continued in your body at a given time and that can never get damaged till you are alive. The processes can get affected due to certain disease but can be recovered after recovery from that disease unless you are experiencing any disorder in your metabolism, which is not so common.
So the functioning of your body like processing the food etc. will go on as usual like others. Weight is gained in a long time gradually but weight loss occurs quickly within 3 to 4 months. So, it has been proven through researches that the metabolism continues to work proper if someone losses considerable weight and even if the process of weight losing had stopped.
Quick boost to metabolism through food supplements
Your metabolism can be boosted but not to the level of 50 to 100% more as misinterpreted by some people. According to scientists elevation in metabolism can be judged through various signs like exhaustion, perspiration, increased heart beat, heavy inhalation and dehydration are the signs that show the effected metabolism due to exercise. Usually Clenbuterol is used by the fitness models and bodybuilders to boost their metabolism but the signs of metabolic elevation still exist there as they can not be controlled. Most of the people have higher metabolic rate with exercises even without consuming this supplement too.
If you try to walk at a speed of 5miles per hour for 10 to 20 minute on treadmill you will be finishing with an elevated metabolism as you will be experiencing almost all the symptoms discussed above. Thus it implies that an increased metabolism at higher rate will be termed as walking on treadmill for the day along. Though, this type of feeling can not be experienced even with several metabolism boosting formulas like drinking a cup of green tea or taking a teaspoon of cinnamon.
Different rate of metabolism between obese and non-obese people
It is a misconception that obese people have slower metabolism and lower burning of calories and it has been proved to be wrong. They have higher metabolism in routine as their body needs to work more for processing more food for it in comparison to the non-obese people with similar age and height because they burn more calories. Metabolism is not linked with one metabolic process but it is linked with the report of all the processes in the body.
For example if you, with a big body, eat regularly more food than other person with slimmer body then your metabolism will be more busy in processing the food to add to your mass and will be expressed as burning more calories with higher metabolism than other person who has not eaten much in comparison. This will not be resulting in any weight loss, concluding the fact that bigger body contains higher metabolism than thinner or smaller body that has smaller metabolism. Thus, there is no direct relation between the elevation of metabolism and weight loss. So if you want to lose weight then it needs eating less.
Breakfast is the launch pad of metabolism
Another misconception is that breakfast influences positively on metabolism. You can not expect any increase in capability to burn calories even if you eat a good breakfast that you enjoy the most. The cognitive function of breakfast may also have been claimed by some people but it is also found to be true for children only than elders, as per the researches. It is because the favorite breakfast makes the growing children happy and delighted and makes them feel energetic in doing their routine work at school. But it can be experienced more in the case of children but it can not be experienced with adults in any case.
Concluding the whole concept it can be said that losing weight needs lesser eating instead of burning more calories. It is the management of diet that can help in losing weight and exercises will help in maintaining or developing the mass of your muscles. Thus your weight can be reduced as a permanent solution only by adopting these two methods and not by boosting metabolism or burning calories fast.
