Have you ever heard someone say they can’t lose weight because they have a “slow” metabolism?
Your metabolism is the speed at which your body produces energy. The faster your metabolism, the faster your body does everything, from adjusting your body temperature to growing your fingernails. And more importantly for our purposes, the faster it will burn off any excess fat, regardless of whether that fat comes from a hearty roast beef platter or your hips, thighs, and stomach.
The rate at which your metabolism is currently running is called your basal metabolic rate, and it is the primary determinant in how many calories your body will burn off throughout the day.
One of the great myths of the weight-loss world is the myth of metabolism, which says: Certain people will find it more difficult to lose weight than others because of their genetically predetermined basal metabolic rate.
However, the latest scientific research shows that your metabolic rate is not fixed—it can and will change throughout your life in response to how you eat and use your body. Dr. Susan Jebb is one of Britain’s leading experts in the study of obesity. When discussing metabolism on one of my TV shows, she explained it like this:
When people go on a diet, their metabolism does change. Your body recognizes it’s not getting as much food, as much fuel as it needs. The reduction in metabolic rate you see when people are dieting is essentially a very sensible evolutionary response to times of famine. If food was scarce, it made good sense to conserve energy, and so your metabolic rate decreases.
In other words, someone may really have a slow metabolism—but the reason it’s so slow is because they’ve slowed it through endless dieting. In its effort to conserve energy when you’re dieting, your body will slow all your energy systems down to a minimum. You’ll feel sluggish and completely uninterested in exercise or any other physical activity.
To make matters worse, whatever lean muscle mass you do have will be consumed as your body literally eats itself to generate the extra energy it needs to function. So even if you are temporarily losing weight on the scale, you’re not losing the right kind of weight— you’re losing muscle.
Why is losing muscle bad? Because that lean muscle controls your basal metabolic rate—the number of calories your body can burn up for you while you’re sitting in the office or home in bed.
There are very few “sure things” in life, but I want to offer you one here:
If you continue to diet, you will gain weight and keep it on for life.
On the flip side, when you eat whenever you are hungry, your body learns it has plenty of fuel. It cranks up your metabolism so that energy can be used quickly and efficiently. Because it knows the energy will be replenished as needed, it doesn’t bother to store any additional fat reserves, and you not only look thin but are filled with energy as well.
I would like to show you not only how to speed up your metabolism but how to “supercharge” it too, enabling you to burn more fat and calories throughout the day and even while you sleep!
