Metabolism is the chemical process in the body's cells that helps convert the food we eat into energy. This energy is important because our bodies need it to do all activities from moving around to thinking and growing as humans.
The chemical process that simultaneously goes on in the body to help keep us alive, keep our organs functioning as they should such as breathing, digestion of the meals we consume is known as metabolism. This chemical process requires energy.
By boosting the metabolic rate, we might be able to shed excess weight and reduce the risk of obesity and other related health issues.
Usually, Muscular cells require more energy to maintain than fatty cells, so people with more muscles in their body than fat, tend to have a faster metabolism. As you get older, there is a higher possibility of you getting fat and losing muscles and this explains why metabolism slows down as you get older. Your body size, gender, and even genes all play a pivotal role in the speed of your metabolism.
Here are 2 foods that can help boost your metabolism
Foods that are high in proteins like eggs can help boost your metabolism. Eggs are rich in protein making them the ideal choice for people who want to increase their metabolism. Proteins are effective in increasing metabolic rate because the body needs to use more energy to digest protein than the one it uses for fats and carbohydrates.
The addition of ginger to your meals can help increase metabolic rate and also help to control your appetite.
