How to increase your base metabolism?

Difficulties losing weight ? Have you wondered if your metabolism had something to do with it? If you struggle to burn calories even when exercising or eating a healthy, balanced diet, your metabolism is probably slower than other people. However, there are solutions to speed it up and you can find them in this article.

What is basal metabolic rate?

Is it a term you may be familiar with? Basal metabolic rate , or basal metabolic rate , is defined as energy expenditure at rest . These are the daily energy needs that our body needs at rest to ensure its vital functions such as breathing or heartbeat for example. As human beings, we have needs that vary according to several factors such as weight, height, age and gender . A man, in general, will need more calories than a woman. The recommendations are 2100 to 2500 kcal/day for a man and 1800 to 2000 kcal/day for a woman. Don't worry if you're not within these ranges, these are general recommendations. The main thing is not to be above or too below , but for that you have to do a little calculation.


But then you're struggling to lose weight and wondering what the connection is? A slow metabolism struggles to burn calories, especially when you follow overly restrictive diets that will tend to disrupt it and slow it down . Indeed, when the intake is too low compared to your needs , the body will reduce its catabolism phase, which corresponds to the process of degradation of our organic compounds (molecules) and which leads to the release of energy. In other words, your body will reduce its energy expenditure and, when you stop the diet and eat again, your body will make a maximum of reserves and you will regain the few pounds lost. It is therefore not necessarily the best solution to get rid of your few superfluous kilos. In addition, other factors come into play , the microbiota promotes digestion , if it is unbalanced , it no longer assimilates nutrients correctly , which will result in longer digestion, a slower metabolism and no longer as efficient as this. it should be.

Of course, not everyone eats breakfast for their own reasons, but try to include this meal in your daily routine. It is a way of not snacking between food intakes , of not consuming too large meals because you are too hungry at noon or in the evening.
  • Avoid consuming sugary and too fatty products in isolation , favor complex carbohydrates rich in fiber. They promote feelings of fullness after meals.
  • Increase intake of good proteins like eggs, lean meats and fish. Be careful not to consume in excess , they can have harmful effects on the kidneys. It is generally recommended to consume at least 0.83 g of protein per kg of body weight. For example, if you weigh 60 kg, you should consume at least 50 g of protein per day (60 x 0.83 = 49.8 g). You can increase this intake up to 1.8 g depending on your physical activity, without ever exceeding 2.2 g per kg body weight.
