Some people seem able to eat whatever they like without ever having to worry about gaining weight. They can eat the types of foods you and I would only have to look at to put on pounds. Nature can be so cruel!
Nowadays, we are aware that factors like genes are partly responsible for our size, due to the ease at which we put on weight. This is predetermined at birth. so have your genes given you a sluggishly slow or a turbo charged metabolism? If it’s slow then unfortunately you are far more likely to gain weight than your turbo charged friends. They will be able to stuff themselves with endless fattening junk without ever fearing the bulge. Whereas if you have a sluggish metabolism you will always need to keep an eye on what you eat. Whats worse is, as you get older your metabolism can slow down even further, particularly so for us ladies.
Ladies naturally carry more body fat than men who have a higher ratio of muscle mass and therefore men burn calories much faster because muscles speed up the metabolism. Other factors play a part, your hormones for exaple, are they functioning properly? Also, your fat to muscle ratios and activity levels all play a part. Ultimately, if you have a super efficient metabolism you will be able to eat anything you like because you will be burning up all the calories consumed. If you are not one of the fortunate ones then what can you do to turbo charge your metabolism ?
What has Your Brain Got To Do With It?
It’s your brain that controls your hormones and it releases fat burning hormones every time you eat. There are two types of hormone and one is in control of fat storage and the other fat burning and it’s the type of food you eat and when you eat it that will determine whether you will get fat or stay slim. Regular exercise will help of course by toning and shaping your body but you are not getting fat totally because of a lack of exercise, you are getting fat because you are eating all the wrong foods at the wrong times of the day. Get this right and it will work better than any fad diet or fat loss pills and best of all, the fat will stay off permanently.
What Is The Right Type Of Food And When Should I Eat It?
If you have been getting gradually fatter over time, it is simply because you have been eating the wrong foods. Also, by eating the wrong food at the wrong times of day will result in it being kept to one side and stored as fat. You body is simply a machine that needs the right kind of fuel at regular intervals every day. You certainly don’t need to starve yourself or even deprive yourself of all your favorite foods because if you do, your metabolism will notice a reduction in calorie intake and go into survival mode. It will slow the engine down by burning less calories and storing the rest as fat in case of emergencies. Exercise will eventually build muscle mass which will certainly help boost your metabolism but you don’t necessarily need to exercise like a mad thing in an attempt to shift those pounds. All you need to do is eat the Right Food at the Right Times. SIMPLE!!
The good news is that eating less food is not the answer so you need to re-train your way of thinking and get rid of the old ideas you have about putting on weight and how to shift it. Changing your eating habits is all you need to do to shock your metabolism into overdrive.
