- Ten ways to quickly burn calories
You probably have heard how familiar blame the extra weight slow metabolism, but what does that mean? Is slow metabolism - the main cause of problems with the weight? And if so, is it possible to speed up the metabolism to burn more calories?
And indeed - the metabolism is directly related to the weight, but not quite the way you think. Contrary to popular belief, a slow metabolism is rarely a cause of excess weight. Although metabolism affect the basic energy needs, our weight is primarily determined by diet and physical activity levels.
Metabolism: Converting calories into energy
Metabolism - a set of processes of chemical transformation of substances from the moment they arrive in the body, providing its vital functions. In the course of these complex biochemical processes calories from foods and beverages, react with oxygen, resulting in the release energy required for normal body function. Even when we are at rest, your body needs energy to perform the "hidden" functions, such as breathing, blood circulation, regulate hormone levels, growth and renewal of tissue cells.
The amount of energy that the body uses to perform these basic functions (in the absence of physical exertion) is level, or basal metabolic rate and the amount of heat per unit mass of the human body per day. Several factors affect the individual level of human basal metabolism:
- Height and build. Users tall and strongly built (with greater muscle mass) burn more calories even at rest.
- Paul. The man is usually less fat and more muscle than for women of the same age and weight, therefore they burn more calories.
- Age. With age, the amount of muscle decreases, and the percentage of body fat increases, and the process of burning calories slows.
The need for energy to perform the basic functions of the body remains stable and difficult to change. Approximately 60 to 75% of calories you burn each day spent on the implementation of the basic body functions (basal metabolic rate).
In addition to the level of basal metabolism, the intensity of burning calories also influenced by two other factors:
- Thermogenesis. Thermogenesis refers to all forms of allocation
Discharges in women when there is cause for concern
heat the human body. All emitted by the human body heat is generated by burning calories. Thermogenesis and the metabolic rate
Metabolism: The basis of life of all living things
increase during the processes of digestion, assimilation and recharge the body's energy reserves, ietot effect persists for several hours after eating. That is why food is advised to take five or six times a day, if you want to burn fat. On thermogenesis spent about 10% of calories consumed each day.
- Physical activity. Physical activity and exercise - for example, playing tennis, going to the store, walk in the park, and any other movement - the rest burns calories. Physical activity - the most volatile of all the factors affecting the metabolism and burning calories.
Metabolism and weight
Very easy to blame the problems of obesity metabolism
Improves metabolism and losing weight without dieting
Because you can not control it. But because the metabolism - a natural process, inherent in all living organisms, your body adapts to your individual needs, adapting to them. Therefore, after the so-called express diets based on full or partial refusal of food, the body compensates for the lost energy (calories) by slowing the basic processes of the vital activity and calories is not burned and remain intact (before the worst of times).
Excessive weight gain due to diseases that affect the metabolism, such as Cushing's syndrome
Cushing's syndrome - an excess of glucocorticoids in the body
or gipotereoza occurs in extremely rare cases. In most cases, unfortunately, the weight gain is the result of eating more calories than you need for life. To lose weight, you need to create a "deficit" of energy, ie, eat fewer calories than you need to, and increase the burning of calories by physical activity. To do this, experts recommend:
- Regular aerobic exercise. Aerobic exercises - most effective way to burn calories. For aerobic exercise include walking, cycling and swimming. It is desirable to perform aerobic exercises for half an hour every day. If you want to lose weight, you may need more time.
- Strength training. Strength training - weightlifting, powerlifting, bodybuilding - very important, because they help counteract muscle loss caused by aging. And since muscle tissue burns more calories than fat, increasing muscle mass and conservation - a key factor in weight loss.
- Active lifestyle. Any extra movement helps burn calories. Find an excuse to once again walk, climb stairs. Even such everyday things as cleaning the house and washing machines, to help burn calories and contribute to weight loss.
