Obesity is linked to more than 60 chronic diseases, including type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke, cancer, and more. You could try a weight control strategy by speeding up your metabolism to help you lose weight.
Metabolism describes all the chemical processes continuously inside your body to keep you alive and your organs functioning normally, such as breathing, repairing cells, and digesting food. These chemical processes require energy.
People who struggle to lose weight often blame a slow metabolism, but there’s little evidence to support this claim. Research shows that overweight people have faster metabolisms than thinner people. Larger bodies require more energy to carry out essential bodily functions.
Although your basal metabolic rate is largely beyond your control, there are various ways to increase the number of calories you burn. By creating strategies for yourself, you can boost your metabolism. However, metabolism isn’t everything when it comes to weight loss. It’s also vital to eat a healthy, well-balanced diet. Weight control is to help you manage and maintain a healthy body weight. Reaching a healthy weight can prevent weight-related chronic diseases like heart diseases, diabetes, enhance sleep, and improve your overall health.
