What is Metabolism?

Metabolism is the term used to describe the process by which the body converts food and nutrients into natural energy. The human body’s metabolism is like an engine, it runs all the time – whether we are eating, moving, thinking or even sleeping! Without our metabolism, we would not be able to live. It is needed to perform all bodily activities, create new cells and tissue, heals injuries, maintain body temperature, repair damage and free the body of all toxins.

Metabolism kicks in when you eat and your stomach begins to digest your food. After you have eaten, the body uses enzymes released by the pancreas and thyroid gland to break down the digested food into simple substances (sugars, amino acids and fatty acids). These substances are distributed by the bloodstream and absorbed by the body cells to be used as energy to run the various processes in the body. Excess energy is then stored by your body (as either muscle or fat) so that it can be used in the future.

What Factors Can Affect your Metabolism?

Nutrition, hydration and physical activity are vital contributors to a healthy metabolism. When you skip meals or reduce your calorie intake, your metabolism decreases because the body burns fewer calories and less fat, or stores the excess fat – resulting in unwanted weight gain. It is very important when on a weight loss program to gently increase your metabolic rate through regular small meals, and moderate physical activity so that a healthy body mass may be achieved.
