Your Metabolic Health
What is Metabolic Health?
Metabolic Health is the state in which your body can maintain its ‘set point’, meaning the amount of fat your body stores and the energy you burn is balanced. Good metabolic health results in less fat storage, the release of stored fat, minimal or no muscle loss, and the ability for your body to convert excess fat and food into energy. As a result, you can maintain your ideal weight and stay healthier.
What Affects Metabolic Health?
Whether this is your first diet or last, it’s important to know why maintaining good metabolic health is essential and how it affects your weight and overall health. The following factors can heavily influence metabolic health.
Metabolism is the process of digesting food, absorbing nutrients, transforming those nutrients into energy, and synthesizing others that the body needs for overall health.
If your metabolism isn’t working efficiently, your natural ‘set point’ becomes dysfunctional. You may experience symptoms like weight gain, fatigue, depression, hunger, cravings and digestive issues.
Getting your metabolism functioning will help you lose weight and improve your metabolic health to release stored fat.
Insulin is one of the most important hormones in your body because it directly affects metabolism, weight gain, aging, and overall health.
Everyone needs good insulin levels to stay healthy regardless of age. Insulin’s performance is affected by unbalanced diets which increase glucose levels, causing excess glucose to be stored as fat. Unhealthy insulin levels lead to Insulin Resistance, prediabetes, type 2 diabetes, and other serious health conditions including heart disease and Alzheimer’s.
Reducing Insulin Resistance allows the body to release stored fat and improves your overall health.
Whether you are 20 or over 60, have 10 or 100 pounds to lose, hormones play a role in your body’s ability to lose or maintain weight and affect your metabolic health.
Many hormones affect weight, and hormone imbalances block your body’s ability to release stored fat, causing more fat distribution. Diet, lifestyle, stress and environmental factors all play a role in health and can disrupt hormones easily; causing them to take control of your weight, metabolism, mood, and health.
When the hormones that affect weight are balanced, your metabolism can efficiently convert the foods you eat into energy and allow your body to release stored fat.
Maintaining Metabolic Health
Weight loss should be taken seriously, it’s not something you want to do over and over again.
Yo-Yo dieting damages the metabolism and causes health problems. We all want to look our best, because when we do, we feel good and confident. But more importantly, maintaining a healthy weight means you have a healthy metabolism and good metabolic health.
