Boost Metabolism Without Reducing Calories
Eat Healthy Without Worrying About Calories
Metabolism is more about energy than weight loss. Usually, articles and other materials for boosting your metabolism are related to weight loss. It is true that metabolism has to do with burning calories, but obese people usually have a high natural basal metabolic rate. Metabolism is more about the energy it receives from your diet and how it is disbursed throughout your body for vital functions.
Calorie Restrictions is Bad
Calorie restrictions and rapid weight loss makes it increasingly difficult to lose more weight as it disrupts your basal metabolic rate (BMR) by slowing it down; a faster BMR burns more calories at rest, but it does not necessarily lead to weight loss because obese people usually have higher BMR's naturally (Cleveland Clinic).
Metabolism is Not About Weight Loss or Gain
Research has shown that people who consumed more of their daily calories as protein, had a higher metabolic rate (Olsen). You gain weight by taking in more calories than you burn, not because of your metabolism being slow; metabolism is more about how much energy from food and drink the body needs (Mayo Clinic). The body uses this energy for movement, growth, development, and reproduction brough about by enzymes with special functions within anabolism and catabolism (Sánchez López de Nava, Arturo, and Avais Raja).
Anabolism and Catabolism"Anabolism and catabolism are controlled by circadian rhythms, and both are important for the development, growth, and maintenance of an organism’s cells" (BD Editors).
