High Metabolism?

High Metabolism? Topic: High Metabolism?
April 25, 2019 / By Elisha
Question: From just general observations and looking at posts in this forum, I wondering how common is having a high metabolism? While the percentage might be low, that would still boil down to quite a few people. Honestly though, I can only think of five guys that I can say for sure who have a fast metabolism, but I can name dozens girls of who claim they have high metabolisms. I can only say a few girls might actually have high metabolisms, by seeing them eat... and they didn't look malnorusihed from vomitting. I see girls with eating disorders... it is kinda of obivious.

Having a high metabolism isn't really just a matter of chance. it has to do with every activity you do, all the food you eat, and the beverages you drink. If you eat alot of food, you will have a high metabolism. your body naturally adjusts to how much you eat on a daily basis, as well as how active you are.

I'm tall and slender, 6' and 170lbs and I have a high metabolism which means that I burn massive calories just by sitting still. But I almost never pig out and I only eat when I'm hungry and after I eat then I stop and nothing will make me eat again until I'm hungry which may be hours and hours. People with high metabolisms typically eat to live. We don't live to eat. People with "low metabolism" are typically people that live to eat.Their bodies burn calories VERY slowly so you would think that they'd never get hungry, right? Nope. The opposite. They get fat. Your metabolism is the energy your body uses to stay alive. Basic Metabolism Rate or BMR is the calories used to maintain basic bodily functions like breathing, heart beating etc. Of course you need extra calories if you plan on getting up from a chair and actually doing something. By the way, I hope you are eating at least 3 meals a day and attending to your nutrition because at 14 you have plenty more growing to do and your body needs the fuel for growing even though your stomach might not want anything. Try to take a vitamin every day as well. I've given you a link to a website that will figure out your BMI (body fat) and BMR. Check it out.

Metabolism is essentially the speed at which our body's motor is running. The speed at which our body burns calories is called the metabolic rate. It's how fast your "motor" is running when you're still in a reclined position or sleeping. About 60-75% of energy is expended by the body at rest in such activities. The metabolism is based on the number of calories we burn throughout the day. Our body constantly burns calories to keep us going whether we are eating, sleeping, cleaning etc. People with a lower percentage of body fat (i.e. muscular) have a higher metabolism than others that are less muscular because muscle uses more calories to maintain itself than fat. Some people have a slower metabolic rate and have a harder time staying slim. Younger persons have higher (faster) metabolism because of the increased activity of cells. A slow metabolism actually causes to store fat. The slower the metabolic rate, the greater the weight gains. How to build muscles to improve metabolism? What type of exercise is ideal that speed up metabolism so that you burn calories even at rest or sleep? There are simple exercises that speed up the metabolism. Causes for Low Metabolism * Fasting * A low calorie diet * Snacking throughout the day on high sugared foods (candy, colas, cakes, gum). * Eating or drinking too much sugar containing foods. * Lack of physical activity. * Underactive thyroid. Metabolism Boosters There are some natural metabolism boosters (natural foods) that improves your metabolism. Do not take over the counter pills containing animal thyroid extract that claim to boost up metabolism. These products may have side effects as diarrhea, increased heart rate, excessive sweating, nervousness, tremors, bulging eyes, etc. How to Improve (Speed up) Metabolism * Do not skip any meals * Exercise daily * Build your muscles * Avoid alcohol, sugar, and fastings *Drink 8-10 glasses of water daily. *Eat foods with high nutrition values

High metabolism comes fom eating the right complex foods and exercising. I learnt that after 20 years of dieting. It is my lifestyle now. I am on low carb, low fat, high fibre, high protein and a hour brisk walk 5 times a week, and I have lost 31lbs/14kg and gained better health. I am now maintaining my 108lbs/49kg for more than a year, with more fruits and complex carbs. Details such as my experience, meals, snacks, recipes, foods to buy, reading labels, walking as an exercise and to shape the body etc etc,
