metabolism the perfect engine

The metabolism of human is the set of physical and chemical processes that occur daily in the body to be alive and adaptive to the environment.

Naturally, all these processes in their entirety are called metabolism, spending large amounts of energy in order to perform it.
The metabolism is divided into catabolism where the body destroys and anabolism when manufactures.

The body is a huge factory that simultaneously perform multiple functions such as: breathing, contraction of the heart, digestion and absorption of nutrients, muscle contraction, synthesis of hormones and enzymes.

The weight gain occurs when energy we get from food is more than is needed by the body to perform its daily functions.
Therefore the surplus remains in the body and stored as fat.

Now if we want to reduce our weight as indicated by the above should the energy we take in from food is less than the energy we burn.
In short we should reduce the calories we take restricting food and somehow increase the calories you burn.

The issue is how we can increase the calories you burn. And here enters precisely the metabolism and its role in weight loss.

The energy we burn daily is the sum of the energy consumption of calm, of foodborne thermogenesis and exercise.
What is included;

Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR):
The energy consumption of calm or else basal metabolic rate (BMP) is the total calories you burn for the functioning of various organs (heart, kidneys, muscles, lungs, brain, etc.).
The BMP is the main regulator of calories you burn daily.
(metabolism – corresponding to 60-75% of TDEE)

Food inducing thermogenesis:
The inducing thermogenesis is the calories the body burns immediately after taking a meal. Essentially it is the energy required for the digestion and absorption of food consumed.
(metabolism – corresponding to 5% -10% of TDEE)

The energy cost of exercise includes both the calories you burn in daily simple automatic movements and the calories you burn when we practice intensively.
Exercise is the factor that we can modify to a greater extent than the other two and thus through this influence more the TDEE.
(metabolism – corresponds to 15% -30% of TDEE)

In summary there is good metabolism and poor metabolism.
Metabolism may be changed by actions that can bring us to the appropriate balance that the body will become more burning than storage.

Today there are techniques and medical equipment to measure our metabolism.
